Developed with large-scale content producers in mind, Sorenson Media Squeeze Server 4.0 is a large volume encoding solution for multi-user environments requiring a standardized output.

Squeeze Server offers a drag-and-drop encoding workflow and allows you to perform multiple encoding jobs simultaneously. Furthermore, nodes can be clustered together to create powerful transcoding farms. Additionally, Squeeze Server can automatically include pre- and post-roll stitching with your branding. Squeeze Server can be flexibly installed in-house, on a cloud-based server, or on a virtual machine.

Note: Annual Maintenance for Squeeze Server (mfr. # 4000-SOPM), sold separately, is required for your 1st year of using Squeeze Server, as it provides setup and configuration support and workflow consultations. It also provides free upgrades and comes with a license of Squeeze Pro Desktop.

New in Squeeze Server 4.0

Avid NEXIS Integration
Squeeze Server 4 has the ability to use Avid NEXIS as a source and destination when creating jobs and watch folders.
XDCAM in MXF Format (OP1a)
XDCAM support in the form of MPEG IMX, MPEG HD, and MPEG HD422
Import Sequenced Still Image Files (.JPEG and .TIF)
Provides the ability to import "Sequenced Image Files" in the form of .JPEG or .TIF files. Commonly seen as individual frames in the form of a sequence of image files (i.e. time-lapse footage).
Multi-Track Audio (.MOV) (via Squeeze Desktop)
Support for .MOV source files that contain multiple audio tracks and allows you to encode those tracks when exporting to MOV or MP4 output files. The most common workflow requested with this feature is multi-language track support but it can be used in other scenarios as well.
Text Watermark (via Squeeze Desktop)
Simple way to quickly watermark your output content and make sure viewers know who encoded or created the file.
High Bit-Depth Dithering Filter
Dithering is required when you are working with High Bit-Depth Color, such as 10-bit color, and exporting as 8-bit color. Dithering will automatically smooth over the color variations and banding that occurs during this color conversion, resulting in a great looking output file.
Updated Codecs (x264, H.264, VP9, x265)
Squeeze Server 4 features updated codecs to bring you faster and more efficient encoding.
Multi-Source Stitching
Squeeze Server 4 will now let you stitch common files together and export as a singular output file.

Other Features

Divide
Now saturate multiple cores at once for more efficiency encoding.

Administration Console
A completely redesigned admin console allows for a much smoother workflow.
Higher Quality
Squeeze Server presets consistently maintain quality across a variety of formats.
Workflow Customization
Install in minutes and be up and encoding immediately with zero-configuration queues.
