Telestream Takes Episode Desktop Encoding Cross-Platform

Telestream announced that its highly recognized Episode Series desktop media encoding products have expanded to offer cross-platform compatibility. With new support for both Windows and Mac OS X operating systems, Telestream’s Episode and Episode Pro applications encode media to virtually every video and audio file format, offering ultimate encoding flexibility in a single software package. Users and organizations no longer need to learn and support multiple encoding tools for multiple projects. Episode provides a complete encoding toolset for novices and experts alike. Known for its speed, quality and ease of use, Episode simplifies content repurposing for distribution to the growing number of digital media channels such as Web, DVD, IPTV, mobile phones and portable devices.

In addition to cross-platform compatibility, Telestream announced the addition of watch folders for Episode desktop products. This feature enables users to simply drop finished projects into folders for automatic encoding, which saves both time and effort. These are the latest major additions in Telestream’s continually expanding Episode encoding workflow solutions.

Episode desktop encoders are available in two versions. Episode ($495) imports virtually any file format, including broadcast and professional formats and encodes media to all major Web, DVD authoring, mobile and portable device formats, including Flash 8/9, Windows Media, QuickTime, H.264, VC-1, 3GPP, MPEG-1/2/4 and more. Episode Pro ($995) includes all of the same features and formats plus encoding to high-end broadcast and professional formats such as GXF, MXF, High Profile DVCPRO HD, mobile multi-bit rate and more.
