SNS Unveils Transcode Accelerator at NAB Show 2023

St. Louis, MO–April 14, 2023–Studio Network Solutions (SNS), the world leader in shared storage, media asset management, and remote/cloud workflows for professional media teams, announced the launch of Transcode Accelerator, a new EVO plug-in that speeds up transcoding processes across multi-EVO environments.

EVO and its built-in automation engine, Slingshot, can process transcode jobs faster with the new Transcode Accelerator plug-in by sharing the intensive workload of transcoding across multiple EVO servers in a workgroup. 

“Just as EVO helps creative teams work together on projects, Transcode Accelerator helps multiple EVOs work together as a team to complete transcoding jobs faster,” said Ryan Stoutenborough, president at SNS. “Speeding up the proxy generation process with Transcode Accelerator will give content creators quicker access to the preview proxies and edit-ready proxies that power their video production workflow both on-site and remotely.”

“Automatic transcoding is definitely one of EVO’s most popular features,” added Eric Newbauer, CTO and co-founder at SNS. “Our new Transcode Accelerator can vastly improve post-production agility for EVO users, and we’re thrilled to launch this free plug-in along with an incredible lineup of other new technology solutions at NAB 2023.” 

Transcode Accelerator is the latest innovation in proxy workflows for video production teams. The release of this new plug-in follows several recent upgrades to EVO’s transcoding capabilities, including:

  • Faster transcode processing across the EVO product line
  • Apple-certified ProRes transcoding
  • Transcoding for Blackmagic RAW files (.braw)
  • Transcoding for RED RAW files (.r3d)
  • Transcoding for ARRIRAW files (.mxf)
  • Burnt-in timecode (BITC) for proxy files
  • Custom watermarking for proxy files
