Important: Please note that while Interplay | Transcode will continue to be marketed for the time being, it will be replaced in the coming months by MediaCentral | Transcode—a new integrated MediaCentral service that automatically encodes stored material into the resolutions you need for high-res editing, portable use, proxy editing, project finishing, and/or archiving. Please check out the link to learn more or contact your account manager or reseller.
Interplay | Transcode
The Interplay | Transcode option automatically encodes stored material into the resolutions needed for high-res editing, portable use, proxy editing, project finishing, or archiving. To take advantage of Interplay’s distributed workflows, low-bandwidth H-264 proxies including compressed audio can be generated so more users can access the media without slowing down the network.
Interplay | Transcode includes a mixdown service to “flatten” entire audio/video sequences to create a new master clip, while transcoding to a specified output format for distribution. With dual mixdown capability, Interplay | Transcode triggers a high-res mixdown and proxy at the same time—from editing clients and from Interplay | Access—and tracks them together for multi-res workflows.
Interplay | Transcode generates multiple-resolution versions of a single media asset. Users work with whichever resolution is appropriate for the task, and edits are automatically reflected across all versions. The original media stays untouched and protected.
Media Composer, Avid MediaCentral | UX, and Interplay | Assist systems can all work with high- and low-resolution formats. To keep bandwidth running smoothly, an administrator can establish resolution settings for users and applications, ensuring that only the allowed resolutions are available to each.
Interplay | Production tracks all the available resolutions simply, easily, and transparently and ensures that Interplay | Transcode doesn’t duplicate any media already available—eliminating format and resolution confusion for all connected systems.
