Telestream has released Version 2.4 of its Pipeline video capture system. The new version adds the ability to frame-accurately print HD or SD video back to tape. Other new features include EDL import and time code, break-triggered capture mode. The addition of print-to-tape playout of HD or SD content in Pipeline 2.4 is especially useful for the creation of spot reels and review-and-approval tapes.
Already available for PC users, Version 2.4 adds time code, break-triggered capture mode for Mac OS X users. This feature is particularly useful in the production of reality shows where vast quantities of content are captured onto videotape from multiple cameras. By using Pipeline in conjunction with Telestream’s FlipFactory transcoding software, low-resolution proxy files are created for offline editing. Pipeline then creates only the required high-resolution clips needed for final conform.
