The Telestream Episode Engine 6 Windows Upgrade From Episode Pro & 1 Year Support Kit from B&H is a software upgrade for Episode Pro version 6 to Episode Engine version 6. It includes The Episode Engine 6 encoding software that runs on the Windows operating system and the mandatory first year of support. The upgrade allows you to encode ProRes files from within Episode Engine. It also adds support for 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 up to two jobs 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 6 Windows includes all of the Episode Pro 6 features such as codec support for Avid DNxHD, AVC Intra, ProRes, GXF, MXF, Broadcast and DVD/Blu-ray formats, adjustable image presets and batch lists with an unlimited number of files. It also supports cluster processing using more than one computer at a time, and features built-in support for automated tasks such as watch folders, and network file management. This means that you spend your time working with the video and not managing tasks across a network.
