General introduction of Alteran Technologies ViTaDi software:
The Alteran Technologies product offering is an affordable, scalable video migration solution that enables the automated digitization of video content. This solution is designed to organize and control rapid video migration of large video tape archives. Using a complex and proprietary database backbone, the solution can ingest over 64 channels of content at a single time, which makes it one of the most efficient in the industry today. This customizable turnkey solution targets high-volume encoding of videotapes to digital file formats, which allows for accessibility to searchable digital archives and asset management systems.
Alteran Technologies’ automated robotic hardware/software video migration solution, ViTaDi, combines with the Telestream’s Pipeline™ network encoder to automate the process of simultaneously capturing and digitizing multiple videotapes and encoding them in real time to digital video files. Telestream’s Episode® Engine works in tandem with ViTaDi and Pipeline to begin transcoding the video files to additional formats while they are being encoded. The result is an extremely rapid and efficient means to capture, transcode, and deliver video in multiple video/audio file formats to media servers, digital archives and asset management systems.

* The Alteran Technologies ViTaDi-ACS breaks new ground by creating the ultimate software management tool for capturing.
The ACS workflow enables operators to capture from a wide array of databases or create their own. It uses a hand-held barcode scanner and individual stand-alone tape machines. It also allows the operation of a Flexicart tape loading robot. The ACS controls the Telestream Pipeline media capturing device, which captures a wide range of formats; from DV to ProRes 4:2:2, and up to 4 input streams simultaneously.
With an advanced real-time monitoring feature, the software can playback the original capture file for review of each input stream during the capture process.
The ACS solution is powerful, extremely robust and can be installed on Xserve or Power Mac based computers.
You may connect your external storage through fiber, ethernet or firewire.
