Telestream Unveils Cloud Encoding and HEVC Support at NAB
Encoding specialist Telestream couldn't contain itself to just one piece of news for this week's NAB conference. On Friday, it announced that Vantage, it's video transcoding and workflow solution, is going to the cloud. A new product, Vantage Cloud, runs on a cloud-based infrastructure, and connects with local workflows. That gives customers the flexibility to turn to Telestream's cloud encoder when they have a temporary spike in processing needs, or when they need outside help working with new regulations or formats. Combining local and cloud solutions, Telestream says, creates a unified hybrid workflow where users can get jobs done quickly without large investments in hardware. Telestream is partnering with Amazon Web Services (AWS) on the cloud solution.
Today, Telestream made news again by announcing enhancements to its Vantage line. The HEVC format, while perhaps years away from mainstream use, is everywhere at this NAB conference. Telestream announced that the Vantage line now supports HEVC, as well as updates to x264 H.264. Additionally, Telestream products now integrate with Aspera Faspex, Cinnafilm Tachyon, Digimetrics Aurora, Interra Baton, VidChecker, Civolution, and Screen Subtitling. This gives customers the opportunity to run delivery, quality control, and watermarking applications from one video workflow. Telestream is currently exhibiting its solutions at booth SL2605.
Transcoding specialist will also show off Vantage 6, the latest version of its transcoding and workflow title.
