Tightrope Media Systems Adds Apple ProRes Support to ZEPLAY

With so many production and editing systems out there, the more codecs that Tightrope Media Systems’ ZEPLAY can support, the easier it is for customers to import clips in preparation for the game and to export their clips and highlights in a form that their editors are best able to immediately use after the game.

One codec frequently requested was for Apple’s ProRes, native to Final Cut editing systems, so this was one of the new featured added to the recently released ZEPLAY 2.1 Specifically, Tightrope added both the import and export of ProRes 422 (LT) to the list of files already supported. All of this is in addition to ZEPLAY’s native MPEG2 I-Frame encode at 100 Mbps per stream for each of the eight input and output streams. To further facilitate workflow, ZEPLAY also supports the import and export of DVCPro and DVCPro HD, making game day operations as efficient and smooth as possible. With the addition of ProRes, Tightrope has almost all of the bases covered with ZEPLAY.
