Ingest Engine migrates tape to digital

Ingest Engine 1.0 debuts

Popwire today introduced Ingest Engine 1.0, a client/server solution designed to migrate tape-based content to the digital workflow. Several clients can work with importing and storing media on one central server that is also connected to the tape player (DV, Beta, and others) and where the actual importing takes place. The setup requires one powerful server, one interface between the tape player and the server, and one tape player. When workgroup requirements rise, users can add additional servers with attached tape players to be controlled from the same client systems. Ingest Engine handles MPEG-2, DV, MPEG-4 Proxy, PBF or uncompressed 4:2:2 and supports VTR control via the standard RS-422 remote protocol. Each server handles one video adapter, and Ingest Engine supports the AJA Io series of video capture units. Ingest Engine 1.0 is being demonstrated in the Popwire booth at NAB2006 in booth #SL1445 (pricing and system requirements were unavailable).
