ProMedia Carbon Features
Breadth of Format Support
ProMedia Carbon can transcode from virtually any media format to every media standard in use today, and is continually updated to accommodate new formats.
Intuitive User Interface
An intuitive interface provides complete control over every aspect of the transcoding process. Users can configure the system to convert a single file into any number of target formats, each with a unique set of operations and filters applied.
For large transcoding tasks, multiple ProMedia Carbon nodes can be configured as a transcoding farm under the control of WFS, which manages job distribution, prioritization, load balancing, status monitoring and job notification.
Under control of WFS, ProMedia Carbon can be run in a fully automated mode with support for batch processing, watch folders and automatic FTP transfers. Automatic detection of the source format and intelligent transcoding to the desired destination formats increases productivity.
The WFS API supports ProMedia Carbon presets saved in XML to drive custom workflow environments.
