“Having mRes win a prestigious award, such as the NewBay Media’s Best of Show from TV Technology, is testament to the innovation of our first standalone encoder,” says Jonathan Aroesty, president of Pronology. “mRes creates various file formats with a click of a button, which gives production teams the flexibility they need for today’s multi-resolution, multi-frame rate and multi-codec production environments. We received exceptional feedback from the show and are honored that TV Technology, a trusted industry resource, recognized mRes and its importance to the industry by honoring us with this award.”
Pronology’s first standalone encoder, mRes, records uncompressed video for each SDI input channel, prior to compression and wrapping: it then creates in real-time or faster, a high-resolution media file, an edit proxy and a live web-streamable proxy that give users the flexibility and ease of use they demand at a low cost point. This unique, uncompressed recording architecture allows mRes to provide various file formats without any loss of quality or signal degradation. This is due to the fact that each copy is created from the original uncompressed file. For any given production, the various departments often require different codecs, wrappers and resolutions. When using mRes, a production team now has access to the content they need, in any of the required compression formats, instantaneously.
NewBay Media’s Best of Show program recognizes outstanding products exhibited at the NAB Show. Winners are selected by panels of professional users and editors based on descriptions provided by the company as well as on judges’ inspection at the convention.
