Anywhere, at scale and with premium results!

Dalet AmberFin has been a go-to media conversion platform for high-end content for years now. Its scalable media processing tools offer transcode, color conversion, packaging, and file transport with an emphasis on the quality of the output. The AmberFin transcode engine was initially designed to run on cost-effective, commodity IT hardware on-premises, but on September 1, 2020 that all changed with the launch of Dalet AmberFin Cloud Transcoder.

The same great picture quality… with unlimited processing power and scalability!

The new AmberFin Cloud Transcoder service is accessed through the same workflow engine as the on-premises transcoder, with the added advantage of immediate access to extra processing power in the cloud any time it’s needed. This gives facilities the ability to control an on-premises, fixed-capacity deployment and a burst-capacity deployment from the same workflow engine and REST API.  

We know our customers come to rely on AmberFin because of the quality and complexity of their requirements. Simpler transcode services can’t handle problems like having to do a standard conversion, in addition to a mezzanine conversion and putting a file package together at the end. AmberFin excels at that sort of complexity. So every feature that our customers know, like and love from the on-premises AmberFin solution, also works in the cloud.

Nothing changes. Everything changes!

There is no need to port any existing conversion profiles or workflows to get the cloud service running. AmberFin customers can use the new cloud service by logging in with a simple set of credentials and gain immediate access to extra burst capacity at comparable speeds. 

The service is offered as a low-cost multi-tenant environment offering geographical flexibility, with the transcode container being cloned into the bucket closest to the request. Customers can also deploy the AmberFin container inside their own VPC (virtual private cloud) infrastructure, giving the more security-conscious customers the peace of mind to have everything within their own infrastructure, which is already under audit control.

Media professionals… Start your engines!

With the halt in productions in Q2 and Q3, there is now a backlog of material that needs to be processed and distributed to a growing number of platforms. Leveraging AmberFin in the cloud is the fastest way to transcode and still achieve the highest quality results. And for those companies that are now coming to the end of the lifespan of their on-premises transcoder capacity, they should consider going straight to Dalet AmberFin Cloud Transcoder. More options, better flexibility and agility to run your business.
