Compression Master video encoder: iPod, PSP, mobile and more
Episode is a handy application that successfully combines the reliability of server based encoding with the ease of desktop environments.

Episode takes full advantage of the OS X multithreaded and multiprocessor environment. Episode is one of the best tools for producing high quality content.

Main features:

  • Transcodes many compressed and HD formats:
  • MPEG-1/-2/-4, WMV9, H.264 (in both MainConcept and x264 codecs), H.263, MXF, GXF IMX, VC-1, DV, WebM, 3GPP/3GPP2, M4A, M4V, MOV, QuickTime codecs, Flash 8 and 9, and many other formats. ProRes is available for Mac OS X and also Windows Server 2008, for Episode Engine.
  • Allows advanced conversions such as NTSC-PAL standards conversion and telecine insertion and removal.
  • Includes full 10-bit 4:2:2:4 pro format support for optimized picture quality.
  • Provides an easy-to-use graphical workflow builder that monitors folders and auto- matically transcodes files as they are dropped in, and delivers them to specified out- put folders.
  • Workflow builder includes many pre-made workflow templates and full flexibility to build your own workflows.
  • Includes one-click clustering with built-in file sharing and parallel batch processing so you can assign multiple Episode instances on networked computers to work on transcoding tasks simultaneously, enhancing transcoding speed.
  • Provides Split-and-Stitch distributed and segmented encoding that you can use to split up large encoding tasks into smaller pieces. The pieces can be worked on by a cluster and then stitched back together to quickly provide a finished output.
  • Includes fully configurable advanced preprocessing filters, such as black and white restoration, HSV and gamma correction, noise removal, image sharpening, as well as audio normalization, balance, fade in/out, and others.
  • Provides preview functionality for before and after comparison.
  • Allows adding bumper and trailer intro and outro movies to content.
  • Permits adding picture-in-picture animation or movie watermarks.
  • Supports 5.1 and 7.1 channel surround sound encoding.
  • Optional, licensed Pro Audio option adds support for Dolby AC-3, AAC-HE, AAC-LC, and AMR audio codecs.
