Telestream Episode Engine 126.96.36.19923 | MacOSX | 6.9 MB
Episode is a powerful cross-platform desktop media encoding application for Mac and Windows. It offers the highest quality and fastest desktop encoding for content repurposing for distribution to Web, DVD, mobile phones and portable devices. Includes: extensive format support in/out including superior quality Flash 8/9 encoding, presets and filters, watch folders, batch processing of 25 jobs and Compressor plug-in.
Best-in-class video processing
10-bit encoding engine and fine-tuning compression combine to allow you to generate pristine picture quality. Brilliant "true to the original" results for simple transcoding jobs as well as more complex encoding jobs such as standards conversion. In addition bumpers, trailers and watermarks can also be added to enhance and protect your video content.
Extensive control of codec and filtration parameters, along with a real-time preview, gives you complete hands-on control. The ability to fine-tune the video, with frame-by-frame video preview, allows you to quickly and easily adjust your encoding and preprocessing settings.
Fully configurable pre-processing filters & control
High quality filters including motion compensated deinterlacing and frame-rate conversion enable complex standards conversion. Filters also include black and white restoration, HSV and gamma correction, noise removal, image sharpening for video, and normalize, balance, fade in/out for audio.
Extensive format support
Episode supports the widest range of formats in its class including all the major input output formats for web, streaming, VOD, production, broadcast and more. Whatever your encoding needs may be, Episode can handle them. New in version 7.0, Episode adds support for formats including
New! JPEG2000, DNxHD, DNxHR and DVCPro HD, as well as built-in support for 4K.
Pro Audio Option
Dolby Digital (AC3) – contains up to six discrete channels of sound.
AAC HE – High-Efficiency Advanced Audio Coding, a lossy data compression scheme for digital audio defined as a MPEG-4 Audio profile in ISO/IEC 14496-3.
AAC LC – Low Complexity Advanced Audio Coding optimized for low-bitrate applications such as streaming audio.
AMR – Adaptive Multi-Rate audio codec, an audio data compression scheme optimized for speech coding.
Closed caption support
Episode enables caption insertion with encoding and pass-through options, and supports CEA-608 and CEA-708 captioning standards as well as MCC and SCC caption formats. With federal regulations mandating captioning, this will enable post-production workflows to handle embedded captions easily.
Multi-bitrate streaming support
Multi-bitrate streaming improves a viewer's experience by letting users deliver videos in the resolution and bit rate that best matches viewers’ connection speeds. With version 6.5, users will be able to easily encode and create packages for Apple HLS (HTTP Live Streaming), Microsoft Smooth Streaming, and MPEG-DASH with a click of a button.
Image sequence support
Image sequences are now available directly from the Episode UI, which provides an easy way to manage thousands of frames for 3D animation and compositing for visual effects. Users can step through the sequence frame by frame with the highest possible quality. It’s also possible to add multiple files from different sequences for multiple encode tasks.
New! 4K video support
For built-in support for 4K video, including presets.
Episode's multi-threaded encoding engine is capable of utilizing the full power of multi-core workstations. In high volume workflows, Episode Pro and Episode Engine can speed up encoding even more by allowing multiple jobs to be processed in parallel. Episode Pro enables two concurrent jobs; Episode Engine supports an unlimited number of parallel jobs, optimizing the processing power of multi-core machines.
Split and Stitch
When encoding speed is critical, Episode can meet the demand with its unique Split-and-Stitch® distributed encoding. Split-and-Stitch technology, available in Episode Engine, enables distributed and segmented encoding for any supported format, taking advantage of all available CPU power. Whether on a single workstation or across a cluster of machines, Split-and-Stitch is able to achieve truly remarkable encoding speeds.
System Requirements: OS X 10.10 Yosemite and later
