New Time Compression Methods Deliver Superior Results

Tempo ™ is a complete solution for re-timing video file-based content and intelligently decreasing or increasing the running time of shows and segments. Tempo utilizes new time compression algorithms that deliver superior quality and faster turn-around times.

Tempo is also designed to leverage new methods of media analysis. It does not throw frames away. Rather, it intelligently interpolates the desired time change over the duration of the content in a way that produces no noticeable visual or audible artifacts.

Tempo has the ability to re-time the complete asset, not just the beginning. The result is much better and more consistent quality.

Strong ROI While Maintaining Source Quality

Telestream developed Tempo with three key goals in mind:

Tempo delivers on all counts by providing unmatched ROI capabilities while maintaining standards of quality consistent with broadcast and network-level requirements.

Tempo Features

Tempo runs on the Vantage media processing platform and Lightspeed Server, providing unparalleled quality of media assets with no noticeable visual or audible artifacts.

Technical Specifications

Video – Tempo re-times content by analyzing each interpolated frame and predicting which elements can be adjusted for time compensation, and then applying the re-timing over the duration of the content, or to the sections identified by the user to be re-timed. Since the entire file (or section) is analyzed for the best candidate frames for adjustment, the desired time compression is applied longitudinally rather than at random intervals.

Audio– Tempo performs compression operations on audio with equivalent timing for the video, implementing pitch correction, which uses a special synchronous technique that preserves the original sound’s pitch. Tempo supports secondary Dolby E audio programs via decompression and re-timing.

Captions – Caption data (608 and 708) is redistributed to maintain the original presentation times without exceeding bandwidth limitations.

Formats - Built on Telestream’s award winning Vantage media processing platform, Tempo supports an extensive range of input and output formats and wrappers. For a list of supported formats and wrappers, consult the Vantage Transcode format encode and decode format sheets.
