Today, we’re doing the same thing all over again, but taking it one step further by bringing those capabilities to the cloud and making international video exchange available to the masses.”

Based on AmberFin technology, the Dalet xN Standards Converter offers high-quality motion-compensated frame-rate conversion in the cloud.

Users simply upload their video files and select the desired output video standard,” said Sudheer Sirivara, General Manager, Azure Media Services and Azure CDN, Microsoft Corp.

Offering high quality, on-demand format and frame rate conversion, the Dalet xN Standards Converter identifies the simplest configuration and outputs the final video product in the highest quality possible. It’s incredibly easy to use, and the results are consistently outstanding.
