Incite Task Server & Render Node

Intelligent Transcoding, Rendering and Video Farming

Incite Task Server regulates exponential processing power for the automation of time-consuming but vital tasks in all phases of production. Whether its Ingest, batch transcoding, batch rendering, archiving or exporting sequences for final delivery, Incite Task Server lets you incorporate and manage all available CPU and hardware power connected to the network for faster performance and service.

Use Incite Task Server to automate file-based content production and for creation of proxy media for web editing during the capture of high-bitrate media. Use Incite Task Server to monitor render requests and process those requests on high-speed video farms simultaneously encoding into multiple formats for different distribution markets. In addition, use Incite Task Server to automate remote mixdown (export, playout, delivery) services via Incite Video Printer or transcoding to different formats via Render node.
