Vidispine Server 4.12 Released With Improved IMF Support
We have released Vidispine Server 4.12 with improved IMF support, ability to transcoding during import using a Vidinet transcoder and better monitoring capabilities.
Import with Vidinet
Transcode and shape deduction on import can now be performed using a Vidinet transcoder. This is supported for normal imports as well as for auto-imports. Image transcodes are now also supported, see the Vidinet service documentation for more detail.
We have improved the IMF package handling with partial imports that are matched with existing content and imports of assetmaps with multiple CPLs. On the export side, we now create up-to-date assetmaps, CPLs and PKLs, and you can select subsets of virtual tracks.
Better transcoder fine-tuning
The number of jobs that can be used by a specific transcoder can now be set using the maxJob setting, putting jobs in a waiting state, and restarting as soon as a qualified transcoder becomes available.
To improve the monitoring capabilities, additional metrics exposing the online/offline status of storages, agents, and resources have been added, together with metrics exposing the size of the cluster when running a clustered deployment.
