Network Encoder for FlipFactory
Network-accessible SDI video encoding device
Provides real-time, reliable SDI hardware encoding
Encodes to DV/DVCPro 25, IMX 30/40/50 & MPEG-2 I-frame in a single box
Sits on your network – so anyone can access it
Extends FlipFactory to include workflows with tape-based or live sources
Extend FlipFactory workflows with Pipeline
Pipeline™ is a real-time digital media encoding solution for
broadcasters, post-production houses, government agencies
and other video professionals. This innovative video capture
device extends the FlipFactory workflow, allowing real-time
ingest of high-quality baseband media directly into a
FlipFactory server.
A better way to ingest baseband media
Pipeline is a dedicated external encoding device that offers
freedom from the hassles, expense and limitations of capture
card solutions. It is more reliable, eliminating the susceptibility
of a server/card model. It removes operating system and
driver incompatibilities. Further, it provides a cost-effective
alternative to expensive broadcast server channels for
ingesting media.
Accessible from any workstation on your network
Pipeline sits on your network, so any FlipFactory user
connected to the network can access available Pipeline
channels from the familiar FlipFactory user interface. This
eliminates the need for a dedicated workstation for each
user.
Real-time encoding accelerates workflows
Media transfer to FlipFactory begins immediately while
encoding in Pipeline. No need to wait for the complete
file to arrive. Simultaneous transcoding in FlipFactory
greatly improves overall workflow throughput.
High-resolution IMX files can be directed to storage,
while a proxy or other version is being created by
FlipFactory. Plus, RS-422 deck control provides
frame accurate ingest from professional tape
machines.
Supports a broad range of formats
Pipeline offers user-selectable encoding to multiple formats in
a single box. Pipeline is network configurable to encode standard
definition DV/DVCPro 25, IMX 30/40/50 and MPEG-2 I-frame.
No need to have multiple dedicated devices to handle your
changing format needs. Plus, Pipeline is network upgradeable
to easily add new formats and features as they become
available from Telestream.
Pipeline Quad, the multi-channel model, offers additional
features such as confidence monitoring, to view what is being
encoded, and redundant power supplies for critical workflows.
Unparalleled encoding density and significant per-channel cost
savings are provided in a compact 1RU chassis.
Applications:
Batch ingest from an EDL file allows users to encode multiple
clips from a single tape. Plus, FlipFactory can automatically pick
up EDLs from monitored folders for easy EDL integration.
Together, Pipeline and FlipFactory automatically control the VTR
and encode the clips needed.
Encode analog tapes into online digital libraries and asset
management systems. Pipeline can be used to archive
high-quality master files into DAM systems. Using the powerful
metadata extraction tools in FlipFactory, master assets, proxy
files and all associated metadata can be delivered to DAM
systems in one single-step process.
Pipeline adds support in DV workflows for direct VBI data
extraction of closed captions and timecode. In addition to
RS-422 and VITC, Pipeline also supports time-of-day timecode
in your input signal from a network time source.
