OvertureRT Multi-Frame Rate Transcode Engine

The OVRT-RENDER-X-B is a multi-format transcode engine with support for an extensive list of video and audio formats. Content can be delivered in a variety of wrapper and codec formats for transcoding to another file format while preserving all the integrity of the video, audio and ancillary data in the source file.

The OVRT-RENDER-X-B additionally offers a variety of video, audio and VANC processing capabilities optimized to provide superior transcode performance. Capabilities include up/down conversion, rate conversion, graphics rendering, upmix/downmix, Dolby D/D+/E decode/encode, IntelliGain audio loudness control, caption embedding/de-embedding, Civolution and Nielsen watermarking to name a few. Additional capabilities include concurrent rendering of multiple output files, file stitching, support for UHD, 3G, HD or SD, and faster than realtime transcode speeds approaching 6x or more. Furthermore, a shared code base with the OVRT-LIVE-2U-B ensures maximum interoperability for content destined for playout on the OVRT-LIVE-2U-B.

The OVRT-RENDER-X-B is available on a dedicated 2RU server hardware outfitted with up to 6TB of RAID6 local content storage (with the option to use network attached storage and S3 buckets) as well as 10G Ethernet ports for rapid movement of content. The OVRT-RENDER-X additionally offers deployment option in a cloud environment thus offering a flexible, future proof, cloud-ready transcode engine for any file conversion, conformance, VOD or Non-linear distribution application.

When coupled with Evertz Mediator-X conform and transcode management tool, transcode workflows can be automated and streamlined to save time. In addition, with deployment of Mediator-X and OVRT-RENDER-X-B in the public cloud, further efficiencies can be leveraged to maintain an optimal balance between cost and throughput. OVRT-RENDER-X-B nodes can be dynamically spun up and down to meet the workload demands during peak and off-peak periods.
