Cinnafilm Integrates Accurate Video’s Powerful Monitoring Capabilities into PixelStrings
Published: December 28th 2020
2020 was an exciting year of growth for Cinnafilm. Our media processing platform, PixelStrings, is an exponentially expanding hub of best-of-breed media technologies. We’re dedicated to providing the most comprehensive and efficient user experience, which makes the integration of CodeMill’s Accurate Player a solid addition to what is available and what is to come.
Accurate Video’s core component, Accurate Player, has been integrated into the PixelStrings workflow for professional subscription users to allow frame-accurate validation of the conversion output generated without leaving the browser. It allows users to get the first test and taste of the capabilities of the Accurate Suite. Users can create a proxy in Accurate Player, cutting the cycle time down from when a workflow is envisioned to when images can be approved. We know that one size does not fit all with proxy playback. For Tachyon and Wormhole-only workflows, a lower bitrate is possible because playback smoothness and artifact inspection are not significantly impacted at lower rates. For Dark Energy and Dark Energy Xenon-enabled workflows, a higher bitrate proxy is generated because image texture and details are critical to verify. In either case, Accurate Player provides the review mechanism to very quickly view the test samples that are generated.
“Cinnafilm with PixelStrings aligns perfectly with our vision to allow media companies of the world to make their content shine. Through PixelStrings unprecedented media conversion toolkit together with the reliability of Accurate Video, we can ensure that this happens.” – Rickard Lönneborg, CEO of Codemill
Here’s a quick PixelStrings primer: PixelStrings is a video and audio conversion service that delivers ultimate playback and audio quality for media. Leveraging the award-winning framerate conversion, retiming, artifact/noise/telecine correction, and transcode technologies from Cinnafilm, this SaaS enables the mass creation of best-possible video versions while leveraging infinite, GPU-enabled cloud compute power. Skywalker Sound provides an audio suite integration that automatically orchestrates complex workflows for loudness correction, channel mapping/routing, downmixing, and retiming. PixelStrings enables the freedom of a predictable OpEx as a simple pay-as-you-use toolset available 24/7 through a browser as a cloud service and on-premises.
“Integrating Codemill’s Accurate Player has been a tremendous value add during COVID-19. With many operations unable to get on-premises to view transformed files on a broadcast playback system, the ability to properly judge the playback of assets becomes a complicated mess of downloads and “hopeful” frame-accurate playback on a CPU-limited laptop or tablet. Accurate Player allows our clients to view the assets from their Chrome browser with the accuracy and controls of a professional broadcast playback suite.” – Ernie Sanchez, COO of Cinnafilm
