Marquise Technologies announces TORNADO, the world's fastest transcoding server for IMF, DCP and more

Swiss-based developer of high-end solutions for post-production Marquise Technologies is expanding its product range with TORNADO, a high powered media processing engine designed to be integrated in the facilities' infrastructure, permitting them to build their personalized automated transcoding workflows.

Designed to answer the growing needs for automated multiple renders of high-resolution motion-picture content for deliveries to the digital cinema & broadcast industry and the OTT vendors, TORNADO is a transcoding server that is remote controllable by any orchestration solution or in-house workflow management tools.

In addition to support for all majors industry formats, including digital camera RAW data, mezzanine formats and uncompressed image sequences up to 8K, TORNADO's main aptitude is to revolutionize the way post-houses deal with DCP and IMF packaging operations.

Automatic creation of master packages or supplemental packages, technical operations like split, merge, re-wrapping or repair are available for IMF App 2 and App 2e.

By achieving up to 240 FPS in JPEG2000 encoding at 4K resolution, TORNADO is also the most powerful transcoding solution available for Digital Cinema content creation.

TORNADO can also provide the simultaneous rendering of multiple files, speeding up the process of delivering the different versions of a release to broadcasters and OTT.

"TORNADO allows service providers to increase their competitive advantage, providing both high efficiency in transcoding and multiple concurrent workflows. It's filling the gap between mastering and delivering" says Laurence Stoll, CEO of Marquise Technologies.

TORNADO is available as a turn-key server with hardware acceleration for JPEG2000 encoding, or as a software only solution for integrators and cloud-based services.
