Turner selects Digital Rapids for multiscreen transcoding

Turner Broadcasting System, the broadcaster behind Cartoon Network and CNN amongst others, is using video technology company Digital Rapids’ StreamZHD multi-format encoding systems and the Digital Rapids Transcode Manager automated transcoding software for multiscreen delivery.

The solutions transform live feeds and on-demand content for delivery to multiple viewing platforms. 
StreamZHD encoders are used by Turner’s network operations group for ingest and encoding of live sources, while a distributed, multinode Transcode Manager deployment transcodes mezzanine source files into various output formats for VOD and viewing on devices including PCs, mobile phones and tablets.

“We’re thrilled that Turner Broadcasting has chosen StreamZHD and Digital Rapids Transcode Manager for its encoding and transcoding requirements,” said Brent Ross, director of sales, North America at Digital Rapids. “Turner Broadcasting is a leader in delivering premium content to their audiences on a wide range of viewing devices, and we look forward to working with them as their multi-screen initiatives continue to expand.”
