Multi-format Transcoder server

r320_front_tr
dS-TRC is a powerful server that is able to automatically transcode media files into multiple format and publish them automatically into CDNs of web hosting. dS-TRC is very convenient for media production companies and broadcasters that need to deliver content in multiple formats, qualities in bitrates.By means of a simple configuration process, all the incoming files dropped in a system directory are automatically transcoded and published into the CDN or web hosting provider facilities.
It also supports the automated creation of thumbnails and insertion of metadata into encoded files.dS-TRC is sold embedded in a 1RU server with different configurations. Based on Linux OS, the system runs in virtualized servers that can be deployed according to user needs taking full advantage of the parallelized multi-core CPU processing capacity.

Applications

dS-TRC is a very useful for multiplatform content providers that need to deliver multiple format versions of the same content. Also broadcasters that want to re-use existing broadcasted content for archiving, catch-up or webcasting and need to transcode their content.

The simplicity of operation and the capacity to increase the system performance according to the company needs makes dS-TRC the perfect tool for small-medium companies to large corporations.
