The following new Pulsar capabilities will be on display at IBC 2012.

    • Super fast performance. Pulsar has always been the top performing solution. With its latest performance enhancements, Pulsar now sets new records in analysis speed. Pulsar can now process an HD file at unmatched speed of 4x real-time. A typical HD movie can now be processed in less than half an hour and four such movies can be handled simultaneously with single Pulsar license.
    • Rapid. Rapid is an innovative rule-based Quick QC & Sorting solution and is now part of the workflow at many important facilities worldwide. Rapid can not only process the content at a very fast rate but can also provide a significant boost to the overall Ingest workflow. Organizations can now achieve unmatched workflow efficiency by using Rapid at right places in their workflow
    • Auto Audio Language Verification. First in the QC industry, Pulsar now independently identifies the audio language using audio essence. This significantly reduces the cost and headache involved with finding multi-lingual staff that can perform this important task. Pulsar can now be used to automatically ensure the presence of the right language in the right audio track
    • Adaptive Streaming QC. Pulsar will showcase support for HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) and Microsoft Smooth Streaming formats. Until now, there hasn’t been an easy and intuitive way to perform automated analysis of content in these formats. With built-in support in Pulsar for these adaptive streaming formats, users can now perform integrated and easy-to-use analysis on this type of content.
