In Vidispine API 5.0 we have added a new JDK (Java 11). This makes process and memory control easier in containerized environment. By moving from OpenEJB to Spring we see improved start-up time. We have also improved scaling and clustering.
Additionally, we have upgraded our Transcoder with new codecs from Nablet for H.264, XDCamHD and AAC, including 8 channel support.
DOCUMENT METADATA SEARCH
Document metadata has been around as a way of organizing duplicates of metadata for a long time. With Vidispine API 5.0, the search capabilities have been vastly improved by the addition of a new endpoint.
VSA TO VSA TRANSFERS
VSA, the workhorse that was introduced with the first version of VidiXplore, has now been improved to support direct VSA to VSA transfers. This will make it easier to use VSAs to build multi-site configurations. Or multi-cloud!
