Aurora 5 is the first file-based QC product to have the ability to dynamically allocate threads across a user-specified number of CPU cores, enabling performance and scalability in high density virtual and blade environments. Using high CPU allocation or a lower CPU allocation combined with Aurora 5’s unique GPU accelerated processing capability, QC throughput approaching wireline limits can be achieved, rather than being constrained by a legacy decoding and testing architecture.
Hydra allows you to select any program, video essence track, audio essence track or ancillary/text available in the container. Use the audio service map to assign a layout to your mono or AES wrapped audio tracks to ensure that you are hearing the program you desire. Visualize your audio and metadata, and see your caption / subtitles / text on the video, including subtitles side-car support.
