Telestream today announced a major software release for its Pipeline network video capture systems. Version 2 new features on the Windows side include log and capture, direct VTR control and EDL (edit decision list) batch import, enhancing tape-based capture into digital asset management, archiving and editing workflows. Broader audio support, improved time code input, and preview panel enhancements are also new in this release. These make Pipeline faster, more robust, reliable and easier to use in Avid and other PC environments.
Direct support for MXF in Avid workflows is also new for both Windows and Mac users, enabling greater interoperability with other systems. The recent addition of a more powerful web service API allows programmatic control of multiple Pipelines, making it easier to develop an application that will automatically control multiple Pipeline systems. A free SDK simplifies integration with third-party devices.
