Both versions will also shortly include graphics overlay (timecode burn-in and logo/watermark insertion – in beta), auto-sync of any combination of audio/video clips by timecode, the ability to discard data tracks when ingesting, support to XAVC-S files and the ability to generate a specific h.264 for use with Dalet MAM systems.

“Media|producer is a truly innovative product that transforms ingest into a much simpler, cost effective and productive process.” said Guilherme Silva, Glookast co-founder and CEO. “With the launch of media|producer ultimate and the latest updates, we are able to take the series to a whole new level that will benefit our customers.”
