Telestream Pipeline pumps into Apple Final Cut Server

Telestream Pipeline, Telestream’s award-winning
network video capture family, can now ingest media from
tape or live sources directly into Final Cut Server, Apple’s powerful
new media asset management and workflow automation software. Pipeline
now also supports ProRes 422, Apple’s innovative post-production format
that offers pristine quality at small file sizes. This includes the
ability to edit while ingesting for Final Cut Pro workflows. Telestream
announced support for Pro Res 422 standard definition workflows today
and high definition workflows later this year. In addition,
Telestream’s Episode encoding software expands format support beyond
QuickTime to virtually any file format for Final Cut Server.

“Telestream substantiates its commitment to the Apple community with
further development of its Episode and Pipeline product families. This
commitment continues with integration into Final Cut Server workflows
and the adoption of this important industry format,” said Dan Castles,
CEO at Telestream. “Support for ProRes 422 means that Final Cut Studio
users gain immediate access to this high-quality format for editing.”

Pipeline is an industry-first network-based video capture device that
provides freedom from the format and access limitations of traditional
capture card solutions. Pipeline was designed with flexibility in mind,
to easily add major new formats into users’ workflows. Real-time
encoding to a choice of formats – DV25, IMX, MPEG-2 I frame, and now
ProRes 422 SD (SQ) as a free software upgrade – provides flexibility
for users’ changing format needs.

Users can log and capture video from tape or schedule recording of live
feeds. Pipeline provides fast baseband media ingest into a variety of
editing, transcoding and digital asset management workflows, including
Final Cut Studio and Final Cut Server. In editing environments,
Pipeline offers significant time savings, as both ProRes or other
QuickTime movie files are available immediately, allowing incoming
media files to be edited while they are being captured.

While Pipeline is a great choice for baseband media ingest into Final
Cut Studio and Final Cut Server workflows, Telestream’s Episode
encoding software is a great choice for expanding format support beyond
QuickTime to virtually any format in Final Cut Server workflows.
Episode desktop software expands encoding format choices through its
integration with Apple’s Compressor. Episode Engine server software
integrates with Final Cut Server to automate full format encoding and
decoding. Scalable from a single server to enterprise-level encoding
clusters, Episode Engine provides ultimate encoding speeds for
increasing high-volume needs.

The Pipeline product family which includes standard definition,
single-channel and four-channel models is available now with prices
starting at $1,950. The free Pipeline upgrade to include Pro Res 422 SD
support will be available shortly after NAB. Pipeline high definition
models, with support for ProRes 422 HD, will be available later this
year. Episode desktop pricing starts at $395. Episode Engine server
software is available in two models with prices starting at $3,450;
integration with Final Cut Server is available immediately.
