The Essential High-Speed Transcoding Tool
Carbon Coder is a file-based transcoding application that facilitates the transfer of media between acquisition, editing, playout, archive, Web, mobile and more. Supporting all major formats (currently more than 40), Carbon Coder is continually updated to accommodate new formats. Carbon Coder can run as a stand-alone application or as part of a multi-node, fully-automated rendering farm under the control of Carbon Server or the Rhozet Workflow System (WFS).
As part of the transcode process, Carbon Coder 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. Carbon Coder provides high-performance, scalable and cost-effective transcoding for a broad range of business environments, from specialized studios to enterprise-scale installations. Carbon Coder can be run via its user interface or via an XML-based API that is included with the product. The same API controls both Carbon Coder and the Rhozet Workflow System (WFS).
File-Based Transcoding Software
Uses a file-based workflow engine. All of its abilities are based on the acquisition, transformation, and delivery of files.
Intuitive User Interface
Carbon Coders intuitive interface gives you complete control over every aspect of the transcoding process.
Carbon Coder can be run in a fully automated mode. Watch folders and FTP transfers can be configured to automatically transcode any files that are moved to specified locations, and then the results can be placed into designated locations.
For large transcoding tasks, multiple Carbon Coders can be configured as a transcoding farm, under the control of Carbon Server software.
Carbon Coder and Carbon Server can be controlled directly via an XML-based SDK provided with the software. Every aspect of the transcoding process can be controlled by the SDK, including source/target destinations, transcoding parameters, filtering, compositing, ad insertion, titling, notifications, etc.
