igital Rapids’ production-tested
presets for the company’s
media transformation and workflow
solutions, have helped to make it
easier for suppliers to prepare their
content for streaming on Netflix.
‘Netflix’ presets will be available
for the Digital Rapids Transcode
Manager 2.0 scalable, automated
media transformation software and
StreamZHD multi-format ingest,
encoding and archive systems. The
pre-configured encoding profiles,
project files and workflow blueprints
will enable content providers to
create high-quality deliverables
meeting Netflix specifications with
minimal effort.
Powered by Digital Rapids’ Kayak
workflow platform, the enterpriseclass Transcode Manager software
combines flexible format support,
efficient automation and powerful
workflow agility for high-volume
media transformation applications
from production and archive to
revenue-expanding multiscreen
distribution. StreamZHD provides
high-quality, multi-format video
capture, encoding and transcoding
from live, tape and file-based input
sources in robust configurations
that integrate easily into any
professional environment.
“Digital Rapids encoding,
transcoding and workflow solutions
play significant roles in the media
processing operations and digital

supply chains of our content and
services partners,” said Christopher
Fetner, Director of Content Partner
Operations at Netflix. “We’re
thrilled to be collaborating with
Digital Rapids to provide presets
in Transcode Manager 2.0 and
StreamZHD to simplify the
transformation process for users
delivering content assets to Netflix.”
“Our solutions are trusted by leading
studios, broadcasters and media
enterprises worldwide to provide
exceptional quality, efficiency and
reliability when preparing their
valuable media assets for delivery to
their consumer-facing partners,” said
Brick Eksten, President and CEO of
Digital Rapids. “We continually strive
to make even the most sophisticated
media processing tasks as easy
as possible, and we’re excited to
be working with Netflix to offer
presets that simplify the creation
of high-quality deliverables by their
content partners.”
Latin American Internet and digital
media service provider Terra is using
a distributed deployment of the
Digital Rapids Transcode Manager to
prepare media assets for multiscreen
video-on-demand distribution.
In addition to Terra’s use of
Digital Rapids Transcode Manager
in the production of content for the
company’s branded online news
portal, Terra has used the system
for a variety of projects including

multiscreen on-demand coverage of
last year’s London Olympic Games.
T h e Tr a n s c o d e M a n a g e r
installation transforms input files in
a multitude of source formats into
high-quality deliverables for online
and mobile viewing. Sources range
from Terra’s in-house Avid postproduction suites to third-party
content partners and public news
footage uploads.
“Digital Rapids Transcode Manager
has given us superior format flexibility
compared to other solutions on the
market, while providing outstanding
quality that
meets our
discerning
requirements,”

said Werner Michels, Technology
Director at Terra.
The enterprise-class Digital
Rapids Transcode Manager software
combines outstanding quality,
intelligent automation, rich format
support and exceptional flexibility for
high-volume media transformation
applications from production and
archive to revenue-expanding multiscreen distribution.
Scalable from small transcoding
‘farms’ to global operations,
Transcode Manager is ideal for both
dedicated transcoding applications
and as part of complete ingestthrough-delivery media workflows.

Transcode Manager presets will enable deliverables
meeting Netflix specifications

Riedel Systems For Betamobil High Definition SNG Truck
By Nils Quak
Riedel Marketing
& Communications

hanges in the sector of mobile
production vehicles appear
slowly. One of the most recent
trends we see is a rising demand
for more flexible setups such as
the Betamobil HD6 SNG unit by
the Berlin based mobile production
and SNG provider Betamobil,
which was equipped by Riedel
Communications.
At the heart of its new six
HD camera unit, Betamobil
uses a comprehensive system
that combines Riedel’s Artist
digital matrix intercom and the
company’s fibre-based MediorNet
media network.
“We believe that the future of mobile
productions lies within flexible setup
scenarios that can be adapted to
the needed application,” said

C

The modular Artist system can be
expanded easily assuring long-term
investment security

Thomas Busch, CEO at Betamobil.
“Riedel’s real-time networks, such
as MediorNet and Artist, enable us
to realise incredibly flexible setups
that can be quickly reconfigured.”
Betamobil uses a wide range
of small and large OB vans that
can be linked together and scaled
up to form larger systems as the
event or application demands. A
Ross Carbonite switcher for vision
mixing and a Soundcraft Vi1 audio

console are also key components
of their design philosophy.
The Artist system in HD6 consists
of an Artist 64 mainframe, which
serves as the foundation for a total
of 12 Artist 1000 series control
panels. Because the modular Artist
system can be expanded easily to
1024 x 1024 non-blocking ports,
Betamobil is assured long-term
investment security. Seamless
integration with other OB trucks or
broadcast production facilities is
enabled via a simple fibre link. Also,
by integrating Riedel’s RockNet 100
digital audio network system with
MediorNet and their Soundcraft
Vi1 console, Betamobil was able
to establish analogue audio signal
distribution without the need for a
dedicated audio router.
For video distribution and signal
processing in HD6, Betamobil uses
two MediorNet modular mainframes
equipped with Riedel’s MN-HDP-6
video cards. The MN-HDP-6 cards
offer two inputs and outputs, as
well as two freely assignable
connections with up, down, and

cross-conversion on all inputs and
outputs. They also allow for quadsplit applications and support further
signal processing such as audio
embedding/de-embedding and
frame synchronisation. In addition,
Betamobil uses two MediorNet
Compact PRO mainframes as
stagebox systems for remote
applications. All signal processing
and conversion options are available
across all MediorNet mainframes.
“With this truck we have realised a
very efficient just-enough concept
without sacrificing production
quality at all. It’s just a very efficient
set-up based on the MediorNet
network approach … If we need
more cameras, editing, or audio
resources, we just add it to the
MediorNet network by adding
another small truck or external gear.
This flexibility allows us to cover
more productions and to be more
competitive,” said Busch.
The Betamobil HD6 has already
been used at various productions
such as the Berlin Fashion Week.
