Digital Rapids announced today that the upcoming version 2.0 of the Digital Rapids Transcode Manager high-volume, automated media processing software has been honored with two prestigious industry awards following the 2011 IBC Conference and Exhibition in Amsterdam. Transcode Manager 2.0 received a TV Technology Europe STAR (Superior Technology Award Recipient) Award and a TVBEurope “Best of IBC2011” Editors’ Award.
Powered by Digital Rapids’ groundbreaking Kayak application platform, Transcode Manager 2.0 builds on the proven quality, format flexibility and performance that have made Transcode Manager the preferred choice of leading media organizations for applications from post production and archive to broadcast and multi-screen distribution. New features in version 2.0 include intelligent, logic-driven workflow automation; dynamic licensing; and elastic scalability with support for both on-premises and external clouds.
The STAR Award, given by the editorial staff of TV Technology Europe magazine, is designed to celebrate and showcase the preeminent technological innovations available to the broadcast industry. TV Technology Europe’s editor reviewed a variety of products, examined the technical applications and their overall contribution to the industry, and then chose 25 winners.
The “Best of IBC2011” Editors’ Awards are chosen by the combined editorial teams behind TVBEurope magazine and the official show publication, The IBC Daily. The publications’ editors and writers searched IBC for the smartest and most game-changing new products being launched into the European market at the show.
“Digital Rapids Transcode Manager 2.0 is designed to help premium media organizations grow their operations while managing costs by leveraging ‘intelligent’ workflow automation and dynamic scalability,” said Darren Gallipeau, Product Manager at Digital Rapids. “The tremendous response we received throughout the IBC show confirmed that Transcode Manager 2.0 is ideally positioned to help our customers achieve these goals, and we’re thrilled that TV Technology Europe and TVBEurope have recognized these benefits and honored us with these awards.”
