  • Telestream Pipeline

    Telestream Pipeline

    August 30, 2010, 10:22 am
    Many of you are now familiar with various break out boxes and network servers that handle all of your ingest needs from companies such as Matrox, Avid, and even Apple. Well I thought I would take some time this week to discuss a network storage solution from Telestream known as Pipeline.




    Telestream Pipeline
    The device is a network based video capture and play out device for moving SD & HD SDI video & audio in and out of Mac & PC file-based workflows. The SD model encodes to DV25, DVCPRO25, IMX, ProRes 422 and MPEG-2 I-frame. The HD model encodes to these plus DNxHD, DVCPRO HD and ProRes 422 HQ formats. Prices varies depending on your needs from $1950 to $9950.
    Set up of the device is relatively the same as setting up a VTR Deck. I simply connected to my Kona card and it began to work flawlessly. The device allows you to transcode to, or use several different codecs for editing, from DVC Pro to DNxHD to Pro Res, using their Episode encoder program.
    Telestream Pipeline
    Where this device really excels is its ability to work in a networked environment with multiple editors are required. If you are familiar with working with networked Avid’s then you will be right at home as the system works similarly. If you have never worked it a network environment picking it up is very easy. You can ingest, print to tape, insert edit, assemble edit or manually play out SD or HD QuickTime files to tape.
    Telestream Pipeline
    The Pipeline also allows you to capture and edit breaking news, allows for smart encoding to Final Cut Pro bins, and create Avid based MXF files. There is no need to wait for a batch capture. This saves you a lot of time and money.
    The device itself comes equipped depending on the model with either Single SDIs or Dual HD-SDI ports. They are also equipped with Ethernet ports, RS-422 ports, allowing you to connect to virtually any network with ease.
    Telestream Pipeline
    Pipeline is fantastic piece of hardware that has been used by several broadcast companies such as ABC, BBC and Techniclcor to name a few. It is a fantastic boon to editing in a fast paced multiple editors scenario. It very fast and efficient and the ability to capture natively into Avid or FInal Cut is wonderful not to mention the ability to begin editing and not have to wait for a batch capture.

      This week I test out the durability of the ioSafe hard drive. It's fire proof and water proof. I wanted to find out how water proof it is, so I flooded the drive. Check out the video below to see if it still works after the flooding.

      Over the past few weeks the folks over at Fast Forward Video have given me the opportunity to test out their sideKick HD.

The sideKick HD is capable of recording directly from the camera up to 10 bit precision, 220Mbit/s , 4:2:2 sampling using Apple ProRes 422 HQ.

      Caldigit VR 6TB Review

      September 18, 2011, 9:45 am
      Recently I had a great discussion with the Twitter community about picking up a new raid for myself as my older ones were now aging, and I was running out of space. Many people suggested a Thunderbolt drive. However Macbook Pro is only a year old and does not support Thunderbolt, and Apple has yet to release a new MacPro Tower. Thus I really did not see the need for a Thunderbolt drive yet. Enter The CalDigit VR.
