Carbon Coder Replacement Project
Show close time for other time zones
The ABC is planning to replace transcoding facilities used by the ABC News Division. The ABC desires the new transcoding solution to be extensible to other applications within the ABC so that in the future a standard transcode approach could be adopted.
The current transcoders used in News were implemented in 2008 and have become critical to production processes. These transcode systems are nearing end-of-life and need replacement to contend with the rapidly increasing number of sound/video input formats. The growing number of delivery platforms such as Internet, social and mobile are seeing a larger number of formats in regular use. Transcoding volumes are also growing – especially as the use of HD continues to increase.
Management and reporting will be a key point of interest in the new systems. ABC is seeking a reduction in the effort involved in setting up, maintaining transcoding workflows, monitoring real-time progress of transcoding jobs and reporting on overall efficiency and throughput.
