multiplatform-logosnablet mediaEngine is a transcoder for live and file based workflows, that facilitates the encoding of video and audio media to a variety of acquisition, editing, broadcast and web formats. It runs either stand-alone or within a multi-node rendering farm controlled by third party apps like netorium’s Active Transfer Tool (ATT) and others.

mediaEngine has an integrated ultra-fast threading model that makes maximum use of the given resources. The transcoding speed is maximized as the built-in nablet video codecs are also optimized for the internal workflow. Specially optimized encoders and decoders for specific formats like XDCAM provide further advantages compared to standard multi-purpose codecs.

nablet mediaEngine is designed to allow highest possible scalability to set up cluster and cloud based media processing and high density transcoding solutions.

mediaEngine takes full advantage of a GPU accelerated processing pipeline including Intel quick sync encoding, decoding, and other functions like scaling, inverse telecine, etc.

Time critical ingest jobs that media companies face today are optimized by mediaEngine’s innovative MXF while-function. It greatly reduces latency by processing MXF files while reading or writing.

nablet mediaEngine supports all major formats and handles critical transcoding (partially optional) operations including:

  • Format conversion SD, HD and UHD
  • Color space conversion and correction
  • Video de-noising
  • Scene detection and segmentation
  • Video fingerprinting
  • Stitching and smart rendering

nablet mediaEngine allows file based cut edit (stitching) and transcoding using simple configuration files, even with live ingest into MXF using the while-function. Ingest supports live from device (SDI) and UDP sources, as well as file based input.
