19 February 2016

RENNES – France, February 18th, 2016 – BBright, the Ultra HD (UHD) infrastructure and video compression expert, today announced that it is now shipping HEVC-Master, the file to file transcoding station dedicated to Ultra HD and HEVC workflows.

HEVC-Master appliance represents the latest generation of file-to-file H.265/HEVC transcoder for professional applications such as post-production / DI, file encoding for distribution through Ultra HD linear channels and VoD services. Running on a latest generation multi-CPU platform (supplied), BBright compression engine can be pushed up-to 12-bit color depth and 4:4:4 chroma sampling to support any kind of advanced HDR implementation.

BBright, as a founding member of the x265 project, has built and developed its accelerated compression engine on a robust and high-quality codec ensuring the widest decoding interoperability and the best bitrate efficiency.

Supporting HDR (firmware option), upscale, and multiple HEVC encoding flavors, HEVC-Master is an easy to use solution for customers adopting Ultra HD workflows, allowing up-conversion of existing HD SDR materials. HEVC-Master includes multi-task parallel encodings and workflow capabilities: watch folder, central storage interfacing, and API for easy integration in existing infrastructure.

HEVC-Master can also transcode into high bitrate pivot formats to fit post-production NLE workflows and facilitate Ultra HD adoption.

BBright is proud to deliver its HEVC-Master to the industry, the Swiss-army knife for post-production houses and broadcasters aiming to process and deliver Ultra HD contents”, said Guillaume Arthuis, BBright’s CEO. “Our customers can today acquire a future proof hardware & software scalable solution moving forward with the next Ultra HD standards”.

HEVC-Master will be demonstrated at BVE London, on BARNFIND booth # J01, 23-25 February 2016.
