Wohler Upgrades The Wormhole...

News Image
Wohler has announced a new release of the Wormhole, its auto file-based retiming and standards conversion appliance jointly produced with Cinnafilm.

The update includes new technical capabilities such as segmented retiming and an application-specific user interface.

"As in any industry, time is money in broadcasting – whether it's time expressed as ad sales or the time saved by automating a resource-intensive process," said Craig Newbury, vice president of sales, RadiantGrid, at Wohler. "Tachyon Wormhole gives time back to broadcasters and dramatically enhances the business value and ROI offered by a media retiming function, without affecting the viewer's experience. The improvements we're incorporating into the new Tachyon Wormhole release will make the process of retiming even more flexible and efficient, resulting in greater opportunities to generate revenue whilst saving overall cost."

Wohler's RadiantGrid Intelligent Media Transformation Platform provides the processing engine for the Tachyon Wormhole appliance, which runs Cinnafilm's Tachyon algorithms. Tachyon Wormhole enables a plus or minus run-time adjustment of media assets by content owners or broadcasters.

Among the enhancements to Tachyon Wormhole is segmented retiming. Rather than retime the file as a whole, operators can use time codes to designate certain regions or segments of a media file to be retimed. Users can also exclude certain segments from retiming. This functionality could allow the operator to prevent an opening credit sequence from being adjusted, for example.

The new release of Tachyon Wormhole also will include an application-specific user interface that gives users a mechanism for preparing and launching a retiming project.

The new version will be on display at the HPA Tech Retreat, Feb. 9-13 in the Demo Room at space number 414.
