Pronology Debuts StreamFile Core Enterprise Platform At NAB 2022

Pronology, a developer of cutting-edge broadcast workflow solutions, highlighted its updated StreamFile Core Enterprise cross-platform web-based software application at NAB.

Designed specifically for remote production, StreamFile Core Enterprise is a tool for receiving IP video protocols and encoding them into editor-friendly formats such as ProRes, DNx, XDCam, H.264 and others. It integrates both NewTek NDI and Haivision SRT, providing increased IP and streaming capabilities. The latest update also offers new multi-view and multi-sync functionalities.

“We have recently become a member of the SRT Alliance, which further cements our support for the protocol,” says Jonathan Aroesty, president of Pronology. “StreamFile Core has the ability to record ProRes and DNx with both .mxf and .mov wrappers. This allows users working from home, on location or anywhere, to take their NDI or SRT streams and turn them into edit-ready files for Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro and others. StreamFile Core’s unique stream relay capabilities also allows users to convert SRT to NDI and other streaming protocols.”

StreamFile Core now has multi-sync functionality as well, addressing the common multi-camera remote production issue of IP streams arriving with various latencies. Based on timecode or NTP, StreamFile Core will sync the streams and output them in sync for live switched multi-cam remote production, allow for an unlimited number of record channels based on hardware performance, with licensing based on a per channel basis. This allows users to record to storage located in their own facility or cloud-based storage. All StreamFile Core features are secured and managed through granular administrator-defined user credentials. It provides user permission levels such as recordist, media manager, production supervisor or producer, allowing access to various features based on user roles.

The system is also agnostic to frame rate and resolution. Its architecture provides a future-proof way to utilize evolving IP video standards without any hardware upgrades to existing infrastructure. StreamFile Core is an easy-to-use tool that builds upon Pronology’s reputation for creating simple and understandable solutions. It is available on an annual subscription basis and also on a weekly basis for short-term projects.
