The Essential High-Speed Transcoding Tool
ProMedia Carbon is file-based transcoding software that facilitates the conversion of media to the largest array of acquisition, editing, broadcast, Web and mobile formats available. The system scales to precisely match initial requirements and grows to support an automated multi-node transcoding farm under the control of Carbon Server or Workflow System (WFS). ProMedia Carbon also includes an open API that allows for the creation of custom workflows or 3rd party applications.
As part of the transcode process, ProMedia Carbon handles a wide array of critical operations including SD/HD conversion, PAL/NTSC conversion, logo insertion, color space conversion, color correction, Close Captioning extraction and more. ProMedia Carbon provides high-performance, scalable and cost-effective transcoding for a broad range of business environments, from specialized studios to enterprise-scale installations.
