Wohler and RadiantGrid Recognized with STAR Awards

Wohler’s iON and RadiantGrid New Media Automation Platform (v.7.2) are the recipients of the 2012 STAR (Superior Technology Award Recipient) Award. The recognitions come on the heels of Wohler’s acquisition of RadiantGrid Technologies, announced at the 2012 NAB Show last week.

Wohler iON meets current and future signal management and confidence monitoring needs, and it does so on a single platform that can be remotely accessed and controlled from Web-enabled devices. iON provides real-time streaming of audio, video, MPEG ASI, and metadata from locally installed, modular hardware platforms that manage all I/O connections at their source. Audio, video, captioning/subtitling, loudness, metadata, MADI, and MPEG monitoring and analysis can be performed from a single user-configurable software interface.

RadiantGrid’s New Media Automation Platform enables a more efficient solution for file-based creation and distribution of media while augmenting and integrating with traffic, rights management, linear automation, and business process management systems. At the heart of the platform is an enhanced, robust media transformation and parallel processing engine with an underlying content management fabric. Powered by this engine, RadiantGrid now manages everything from faster-than-real-time transcoding and audio processing to more complex processing such as faster-than-real-time standards conversion, mixed cadence correction, video optimization, and audio loudness conformance.
