"Consumers not only want instant access to new Hollywood hit movies on their connected TVs and Blu-ray players, they want it in HD," said Mark Ely, executive vice president of strategy for Sonic Solutions. "In collaboration with Widevine, we've been able to enhance our world-class CineVision encoding system to prepare content for pristine viewing on the coming wave of connected CE devices ? without requiring CE manufacturers to put costly hard drives in their products."
CineVision Adaptive HD is the world's first encoding solution to combine the compression parameters mandated by video mastering engineers with the multi-bandwidth encoding, multiplexing, and formatting required to ensure seamless delivery of HD streams to connected CE devices. With its ability to take advantage of multiple processors in multi-CPU encoding farm settings, CineVision Adaptive HD can be scaled to enable the level of high-volume content preparation required for next-day TV releases, back catalog conversion and delivering new releases on time and under budget.
