Sonic Unveils CineVision PSE, a New Parallel Stream Encoder Based on Microsoft Technology

Sonic Solutions® announced that it has entered into a commercial agreement to broadly deploy Microsoft’s advanced VC-1 encoding technology, known as the PEP Encoder, in the professional high-definition title creation industry. Already used by studios to prepare video assets for a significant number of HD DVD titles, the all new version of the PEP Encoder, re-branded as Sonic CineVision™ PSE (Parallel Stream Encoder), is being released worldwide and supported by Sonic. Ideal for enterprise-level authoring facilities with large processing infrastructures, CineVision PSE is a best-of-breed VC-1 encoding platform that provides an unprecedented level of fine-parameter and pre-processing controls to tackle the intricate high-level image quality requirements of Hollywood. Sonic is demonstrating CineVision PSE at NAB (Stand SL4314), taking place through April 19th in Las Vegas, Nevada.

CineVision PSE is a scalable software encoding solution that can be deployed across a connected array of parallel processing computing systems. Depending on the configuration, CineVision PSE may be used to encode multiple simultaneous streams of the highest quality VC-1 delivered in near real-time. The application features segment-based re-encoding, support for ISAN and Ad-ID metadata, and a graphical bit-stream player for viewing the quality of an encoded file.

VC-1 is a video codec standard that offers very high image quality with excellent compression efficiency. VC-1 has been adopted by both the DVD Forum and Blu-ray Disc (BD) Association as one of the mandatory codecs for next-generation high-definition formats.
