Capella Shows Updated Versions of Cambria FTC 3.4 and Cambria Live 3.3 at InterBEE 2016.

Nov. 08 2016

San Jose, CA (Nov. 8, 2016) – Capella Systems will exhibit Cambria FTC 3.4 and Cambria Live Broadcast 3.4 together with Cambria Live 3.3 at InterBEE 2016, Nov 16 to Nov 18 at Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan. Video professionals can get a full demonstration of the new features and enhancements in these products at Hall 4 Booth 4602.

Cambria FTC 3.4 adds a motion-compensated frame rate converter for the highest quality standards conversion. Its per-pixel motion analysis generates frames at any point in time between existing source frames, resulting in smoother, more natural-looking conversion between NTSC and PAL.

“Many of our users were not satisfied with existing frame rate conversion solutions,” says Martin Belleau, VP of Engineering of Capella Systems. “We’re excited to announce native, motion-compensated frame rate conversion using our state-of-the-art algorithms.”

Cambria FTC 3.4 adds support for x265 encoding, which Capella has paired with its innovative Dynamic Encoding feature. Dynamic Encoding speeds up encoding times by automatically employing slower modes only when a source segment’s complexity demands it. Most sources see encode times up to 50% faster.
“This is one of our biggest releases ever, and we’ve enhanced a feature set that already includes Source Adaptive Bitrate Ladder Encoding and Scriptable Workflows,” says Ikuyo Yamada, CEO of Capella Systems.
Other new features in Cambria FTC 3.4 include Dynamic Encoding Slots and Text Extraction. Dynamic Slots maximize performance when mixed workflows are used on multi-core systems. Video Text Extraction identifies text found in video, such as scrolling credits, and exports it to an XML file for use in the existing media workflow. The final version of Cambria FTC 3.4 (ETA Q1 2017) will support import and export of IMF, as well as new audio codecs such as Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby E.

Cambria Live Broadcast 3.3 provides a fully automated live streaming workflow for broadcasters. A new Cambria Live plug-in framework integrates easily into existing playout and ad scheduling systems for mixing live and on-demand assets. Cambria Live
Broadcast 3.3 now supports streaming to Server Side Ad Insertion (SSAI) platforms, such as brightcove and Ooyala, that offer smooth transitions between ads and content for a TV-like playback experience.

Cambria Live 3.3 now supports Facebook Live streaming. Users can stream directly to a Facebook page in seconds just by adding Facebook account information. In a live streaming studio setup, Cambria Live 3.3 features 8 SDI inputs. Both Cambria Live 3.3 and Cambria Live Broadcast 3.3 now run in 64-bit architecture, for improved scalability and performance.
