Snell & Wilcox introduces Helios software-based conversion platform

Snell & Wilcox has announced Helios, a revolutionary software-based conversion platform that eliminates the boundaries between video formats, global standards, and new media display devices.
Helios ensures that all digital media, including live video, will perform optimally on any platform, anywhere whether it be broadcast television, web sites, iPods, mobile telephones, IPTV, video-on-demand, broadband, or a new service yet to be conceived.
Helios brings Snell & Wilcox's conversion, compression, and signal processing expertise to the file-based domain. Combining the company's Ph.C motion estimation and FormatFusion technologies, Helios finally makes possible the long-held dream of content owners and broadcasters to ‘master once, distribute anywhere’.
Running on generic, open-standards IT hardware, Helios transcends simple transcoding by encompassing a complete automated solution that can convert under user control video, audio, and metadata to the required format in a single "anytime" pass.
"Anytime" means Helios' intelligent job manager will dynamically scale processing throughput simply by applying the appropriate amount of CPU power required for an individual task.
The Helios platform family incorporates functionality for every aspect of the IT file-based workflow. Included in the suite are software modules for conversion, interoperability, and distribution.
