Harmonic has teamed with Cinnafilm, a developer of graphics processing unit (GPU)-based film and video post production technology, to integrate Cinnafilm’s Dark Energy image processing tools with Harmonic’s Rhozet universal media transcoding solutions. The integrated solution allows post-production studios, media companies, broadcasters and service providers to produce superior quality video for delivery to TVs, PCs and mobile devices, while saving bandwidth.

"The combination of Cinnafilm’s advanced image processing tools and Harmonic’s Rhozet transcoding solutions provide a very powerful solution for removing unwanted noise, grain and artifacts from video footage while improving the transcoding workflow and significantly reducing bandwidth requirements,” said Tom Lattie, Rhozet general manager at Harmonic, in a statement. “Rhozet’s open API leads the industry in extensibility and enables best-of-breed technologies, such as Cinnafilm’s Dark Energy, to be easily embedded into the transcoding pipeline.”

Harmonic’s Rhozet product family works together to optimize the transcoding process, including standards conversion, logo insertion, timecode burn-in and digital rights management.

Rhozet transcoding solutions facilitate the creation of multi-format video for Internet, mobile and broadcast applications and are used by leading media companies including Ascent Media Group, British Sky Broadcasting (BskyB), Lifetime Networks, MTV, NBC, YouTube and Yahoo!
