"With the rise of multiplatform media consumption, it has become more important than ever that broadcasters have the means to deliver high-quality content quickly and cost effectively via both their traditional linear services and new Internet-based delivery platforms," said Craig Newbury, vice president sales, RadiantGrid. "Version 8.3 of RadiantGrid meets that demand, offering broadcasters a variety of powerful tools that boost the efficiency of file-based workflows for multiplatform media delivery."
The Wohler RadiantGrid Intelligent Media Transformation Platform provides consolidated media processing capabilities, such as transcoding, standards conversion, audio processing, caption processing, and quality control, with a highly intelligent content management fabric. Based on an extensible service-oriented architecture, the platform integrates smoothly with editorial, archive, traffic, business process, and rights management systems.
Version 8.3 of the RadiantGrid platform enables fully compliant OTT offerings for leading formats, including MPEG-DASH, HLS, and Microsoft Smooth Streaming, and aids broadcasters and other content producers in meeting the array of target bit rates, resolutions, and frame rates necessary for today's content delivery ecosystem.
The platform also incorporates a brand-new media processing engine that parallelizes complex audio loudness correction alongside the video at unprecedented speeds. Along with optimized video pipeline features such as anamorphic video handling, 2K/4K Ultra HD support, and higher bit depths of up to 16-bit YUV, the RadiantGrid platform has been enhanced with the RadiantGrid Detect and Correct(TM) video legalization option, which leverages Wohler's unique RightHue(TM) algorithm to ensure comprehensive NTSC and PAL color compliance within the file-based domain.
