Telestream’s Episode 6.3 video encoding software supports the x264 video codec to bring higher-quality H.264 encoding to all Episode software products, the company says.
In addition, Telestream says it is making it easier for post-production companies, artists and editors to access Episode’s encoding capabilities by providing direct integration with Autodesk editing and with such finishing software as Smoke and Flame, adding “Collaboration and clustering are at the core of Episode’s design, allowing users to easily join Mac and PC computers together to share encoding work among workstations.” ??
“Deep system integration with Smoke and Flame makes Episode the only encoder in its class to enable browsing, monitoring and transcoding directly from the Autodesk software,” Telestream states. “Direct integration makes it easier for Smoke and Flame users to access the powerful, scalable encoding capabilities of Episode products. For creative facilities, Episode allows editors and artists to easily offload encoding tasks to other systems or to centralize functions on an encoding cluster.” ?
