Bridge Utility Supports Both NDI and SRT Protocols and is Ideal for Large Teams On-prem or as a Cloud Application
NEW YORK — Pronology, a developer of cutting-edge broadcast workflow solutions, now offers StreamFile Core Enterprise, a cross-platform web-based software application that is specifically designed for large teams. StreamFile Core Enterprise is a tool for receiving IP video protocols and encoding them into editor-friendly formats such as ProRes, DNx, XDCam, H.264 and others. It integrates both NewTek NDI® and Haivison SRT support, providing increased IP and streaming capabilities.
The system allows for an unlimited number of record channels based on hardware performance, with licensing based on the number of channels. StreamFile Core helps facilitate the move towards remote production as it can be used on-prem as well as through Amazon Web Services (AWS) or other cloud providers.
StreamFile Core Enterprise was built upon the same technology that powers Pronology’s award-winning mRes™ encoder. It enables facilities and studios transitioning to an IP-based platform to utilize their existing non-linear editing, graphics and digital system infrastructures. StreamFile Core Enterprise bridges the gap between IP-based video technology and legacy baseband recording workflows.
“We are excited to offer an enterprise version of our StreamFile Core application as a platform,” says Jonathan Aroesty, president of Pronology. “With its AWS capabilities, large production teams can truly collaborate and optimize their remote production workflows.”
The web-based platform supports several codecs including the ability to record ProRes and DNx with both .mxf and .mov wrappers. This allows users working from home, on location or anywhere, to take their NDI or SRT streams and turn them into edit-ready files for Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro and others.
In addition to the flexible and robust record configurations, the system offers a web browser-agnostic, cross-platform IP stream multi-viewer. This feature allows for extensive multi-view template flexibility, as well as user-defined display customizations, which can be easily shared with large production teams. All StreamFile Core Enterprise features are secured and managed through granular administrator-defined user credentials. It provides user permission levels including operator, production supervisor and producer, allowing various features based on user roles.
StreamFile Core Enterprise is also agnostic to frame rate and resolution. Its architecture provides a future-proof way to utilize evolving IP video standards without any hardware upgrades to existing infrastructure. It is an easy-to-use tool that builds upon Pronology’s reputation for creating simple and understandable solutions.
