German post-production company says Vantage frees up editors from encoding

Magenta TV, a full-service post-production facility in Germany’s Rhine-Maine region, has successfully deployed Telestream Vantage video transcoding and workflow automation server-software.
Magenta TV says it selected Telestream because Vantage provides the centralized system the company needed to automatically process a variety of encoding tasks outside of its editing suites.
“With Telestream Vantage we can operate faster and more efficiently with greater flexibility and perfect results,” says Andreas Statzner, Magenta TV general manager. “Vantage allows us to encode and process our media independently of the edit suites, so that our editors can focus on what they do best, which is editing, rather than encoding.”
Magenta TV provides video and film technical services to clients that include broadcast stations, production companies and the film industry.
Vantage is used in conjunction with its storage area network to create, convert and deliver a range of file formats between different systems, such as several Avid systems in combination with a Snell Alchemist or Lynx PVD 5660, as well as Nucoda HD.
The company says its platform also captures content from editing systems, aligns audio tracks, exports advanced authoring format files and processes encoded files for video on demand, archive and delivery. With Vantage, Apple ProRes HD files are converted into low-resolution formats for web purposes, and Avid QuickTime reference files are linked with metadata and encoded into low-res formats with integrated timecode for sound editing at external studios.
