Terran Interactive has released a new production suite for content developers producing Streaming content for the Internet. The new solution is called Media Cleaner Power Suite, and is aimed at the high-end market. According to Terran Interactive:
Terran Interactive, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media 100, Inc., today announced the availability of the Media Cleaner Power Suite, the industry's fastest way to get high-quality digital video from the desktop to the Internet. The Power Suite ensures anyone wanting to produce streaming media files of any size for the Internet, broadband networks, corporate intranets and new media can now get professional results fast and affordably. The Media Cleaner Power Suite includes accelerated versions of the industry leading Media Cleaner Pro and Sorenson Video codec, Ultra BlueICE and the Professional Edition of the QDesign Music Codec.
Web video and audio clips have become a must on Web sites, and the need to repurpose video to streaming formats demands fast, efficient tools for video compression. The Media Cleaner Power Suite encodes Sorenson video 4 to 7 times faster than other solutions through the use of acceleration technology from ICE (Integrated Computing Engines). The compression software components of the Media Cleaner Power Suite are based on the same tools that enabled Apple Computer and Lucasfilm to achieve the stunning results of the encoded Star Wars Episode One: The Phantom Menace trailer.
The Products Included in Media Cleaner Power Suite
The Media Cleaner Power Suite includes ICE accelerated versions of the award-winning Media Cleaner Pro 4.0, the Developer Edition of the Sorenson Video Codec version 2.1 and Ultra BlueICE hardware. Additionally the product contains the Professional Edition of the QDesign Music Codec version 2.0 and Terran's "How to Produce High-Quality QuickTime" instructional guide. The product is designed for integration with editing solutions such as Media 100, Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere and is the first Terran product to include an OMF import module for optimal integration with Avid systems.
The Power Suite is now available for the Macintosh platform, a Windows NT version of Media Cleaner Power Suite is expected to be available in the first quarter of 2000.
