The Telestream Episode Engine 6 Upgrade for Mac with 1 Year Support Kit from B&H is a software upgrade for Episode software version 6 to Episode Engine version 6. It includes The Episode Engine 6 encoding software that runs on the Mac operating system and the mandatory first year of support. The upgrade adds support for an extensive number of Codecs, including Avid DNxHD, AVC Intra, ProRes, GXF, MXF, Broadcast, and DVD/Blu-ray formats. Also added with the upgrade is Split and Stitch encoding, which maximizes all available CPU power, whether on one machine or across a cluster. Upgrading also means that you can go from encoding only one job at a time to encoding an unlimited number of jobs at the same time. With the optional API developer kit the update also brings you adaptive bitrate streaming over HTTP using Apple HLS or Microsoft Smooth Streaming.
Episode Engine includes all of Episode 6 features such as adjustable image presets that can be previewed frame-by-frame, batch lists with an unlimited number of files, support for cluster processing using more than one computer at a time, and built-in support for automated tasks such as watch folders and network file management. This means that you spend more time working with the video than managing tasks across a network.
