Telestream releases FlipFactory v6

Telestream, has released version 6.0 software release for its flagship FlipFactory
transcoding workflow automation product line. FlipFactory v6.0 software
includes simultaneous transcoding while ingesting from tape with the
company’s new Pipeline
network encoder, support for HD commercial and syndication workflows, a
new Screen Subtitle option for open subtitling, auto-publishing of
metadata with media to more video sharing websites, integrated 2-pass
Flash 8 encoding, plus support for even more formats.

Telestream’s new Pipeline network encoder for FlipFactory provides a
faster, more reliable alternative to PC capture card solutions for
ingesting tape-based media into any FlipFactory product. Pipeline
provides real-time SDI encoding to DV, IMX and MPEG-2, as well as
playout to SDI. Simultaneous transcoding while ingesting from tape
greatly improves workflow throughput for real-time proxy generation and
ingest for archival applications. Batch ingest from an EDL file allows
users to encode multiple clips from a single tape. Pipeline can also be
used to schedule automated ingest of live feeds occurring at a later

Responding to recently-announced delivery of HD content to
broadcasters by digital delivery service providers, FlipFactory v6.0
provides automated ingest of HD media from Pathfire, DG FastChannel,
and Vyvx systems. A new HD option for FlipFactory TrafficManager
automates the entire process of monitoring catch servers for the
arrival of HD and SD commercial content, pulling the media into the
station for QA, proxy generation, transcoding, processing and delivery
to on-air servers or archives, and notifying the automation system. In
addition, v6.0 automates ingest of Pathfire-delivered HD syndication
content for broadcasters.

The new Screen Subtitle software option allows users to generate
high-quality subtitles from a wide range of professional subtitle
formats. When combined with FlipFactory workflow automation, this
option enables efficient generation of burnt-in subtitles in the
required output file formats for multiple distribution outlets, while
leaving a clean archival source file.

FlipFactory MetaFlip adds Google to the list of video-sharing
websites that it supports. Telestream’s exclusive MetaFlip technology
automatically transforms and delivers metadata along with media files
to content distribution service providers, enabling content to be
immediately searchable when it is uploaded. MetaFlip also supports
iTunes, RSS requirements and Cable-Labs VOD workflows.

Now supporting more than 120 video and audio formats and devices,
FlipFactory v6.0 adds an integrated Flash 8 encoding option which
eliminates the need for users to purchase a separate Flix Exporter. The
option includes two-pass encoding for pristine quality. A new H.264
encoder has also been added, allowing HD, SD, or mobile H.264 video to
be created within Transport Stream, Program Stream, and M4V wrappers.

FlipFactory v6.0 is a free upgrade to existing users with valid
maintenance contracts. It is available for purchase through
Telestream’s worldwide direct sales and resale channels. Price depends
on configuration and features, but is definitely in the enterprise
