Pixel Xtream can simultaneously convert a single file into any number of target formats, each with a unique set of operations and filters applied. It integrates easily into networked file-based digital media workflows with it’s automated watch folder and web publishing features. Project files define transcode settings, video and audio processing functions, and delivery options. Settings can be saved as Profiles and Jobs to re-use on future projects. Priorities can be assigned to each job type.
Simple set-up, an intuitive GUI and workflow, and features like the side-by-side preview, have mission critical operations up and running in minutes.
Always-on Enhancement for Superior Performance & Low-touch Operation
Ipera's unique transcoder design goes beyond existing solutions that can degrade video bitstream quality and are cumbersome and expensive to use requiring constant operator monitoring and interaction. Using the built-in Pixel Magic® intelligent video enhancement engine with it’s always-on adaptive enhancement mode, Pixel Xtream anyalyzes the source video and automatically removes noise, distortion, and artifacts that exist in the in the ingested video file, and prevents new distortions introduced in the encoding process. This allows transcoding to lower bit rates for all source content while visual quality is boosted at all bit rates with sharper contrast, improved brightness, more vibrant color, and sharper edge details. Pixel Xtream effortlessly delivers better quality video and services to viewers worldwide and saves on bandwidth costs.
Blazing Speed and High Throughput
Pixel Xtream uses a unique transcoding architecture that offers blazing video processing speeds and unparalleled throughput, processing files up to 3x faster on any platform than other software transcode solutions. It is a fully multi-threaded application, automatically adjusting to use the maximum CPU and system capabilities available to consistently deliver the highest throughput and fastest transcodes.
Top notch performance and features combined with phenomenal ease of use make Pixel Xtream the best return on your transcoding investment!
