Cisco Transcode Manager (formerly Inlet Armada)
High Volume Transcoding
Cisco Transcode Manager (formerly Inlet's Armada) is a revolutionary workflow management system that automates the entire file preparation process, eliminating many of the stove-pipes and manual steps required by traditional approaches. Ideal for high-volume encoding environments, Armada's multi-format, multi-CPU, high-output architecture can manage your entire workflow, or plug into your existing asset management tools.
