PixelStrings Media Conversion Platform Updates: Wormhole, Dark Energy Xenon, and New Invoicing Features

The 4.9 release is light on user features but is heavy on the financial side of things. We have completely updated our financial engine to support purchase order-based consumption and our invoices have had a major upgrade. We think you will be very pleased with the improvements! We’ve also added a couple of security features for administrators that allow them to control the multi-factor authentication time periods as well as the time to auto-logout due to inactivity.

New Features

  • New UI for invoice tracking that allows for easy correlation of jobs and charges
  • For Team/Enterprise users: new UI tab with tight integration between jobs, invoices, and purchase orders
  • Individual invoice pages. Download PDF or CSV of items on a given invoice
  • Setting to auto-logout after UI inactivity period
  • Setting to control MFA expiration time

General Updates

  • Reorganized Assets page
  • Added more view options in the Jobs table
  • PixelStrings Engine updates, resulting in more robust Wormhole processing including the handling of corner cases, such as very short time segments
  • Dark Energy Xenon: updated Technicolor library version for finer details in SL-HDR1 debug logging

Full technical bulletin details are available here.

We have many features coming for our NABShow 2022 release:

  • The return of IMF authoring
  • Dolby Digital Plus encoding
  • A new burn-in module
  • Further expansion of ingest and output codecs

If you’re attending NAB, stop by our booth for a demo!
