Telestream Episode Streamlines Video Encoding for Cannes Film Festival

Episode Engine automates encoding of all Web videos for Festival de Cannes (April 11, 2012)
DMN Newswire--2012-4-11--TelestreamŽ, the leading provider of video transcoding and workflow solutions, today announced that its EpisodeŽ Engine application has been selected for the second year in a row to encode all Web videos for the Festival de Cannes. Episode was chosen for its ability to streamline the video encoding and delivery process, all within a single application. This years  Festival  will be held May 16-27 in Cannes, France



?We are honored that Episode Engine was selected to encode the online video components for this prestigious film festival, said Barbara DeHart, VP of marketing at Telestream. ?The workflow at Cannes highlights Episodes ability to reliably deliver multiple encodes to multiple destinations while utilizing all of the processing power at its disposal for maximum speed and efficiency.



Episode Engine was selected for the Festival de Cannes official website to replace multiple technologies that had previously been used to encode and deliver videos to multiple destinations.  Prior to Episode, videos were exported over the network to a watch folder, encoded one-by-one, saved to another watch folder, and then uploaded to the Festivals FTP host. The former process required significant maintenance and monitoring.


With Episode, the Festival de Cannes has a single application that handles all aspects of video encoding and delivery from start to finish. Episode Engine runs on the Festivals existing multi-core Mac Pro computers. Watch folders are established at the start of the workflow, allowing several videos to be processed simultaneously and saved to local, as well as remote, folders on the FTP site.  This setup allows the web team to monitor the output files and make backups where necessary. In addition, Episode Engine provides clustering of all five Mac Pros, maximizing processing power.

?Its a real pleasure to watch Episode Engine process our videos, said Anthony Verpoort, video project manager for the Festival de Cannes official website. ?A 40-minute press conference video can be compressed in six formats and uploaded in less than 30 minutes. This enables us to quickly get our videos online and keep our viewers virtually up-to-the-minute on what is happening at the Festival.
