ShowSqueeze is how SnapStream quickly converts native MPEG-2 recordings to H.264, WMV or XDCAM. These compressed formats take up less space and help maximize the amount of TV content you’re able to store.
Transcode MPEG-2 recordings or clips to a variety of formats. H.264 delivers the same quality at half the bitrate and size of MPEG-2. QuickTime, WMV 7 and WMV 9 all offer similar video quality at smaller sizes. XDCAM, commonly used in broadcast, is conducive to importing clips directly into editing suites.
Initiate ShowSqueeze when a broadcast begins. Transcoding continues into real time as it airs. When it’s done airing, your new file is ready to go.
The SnapStream ShowSqueeze Node runs high CPU tasks (such as ShowSqueeze, clipping and sharing TV) in high volume. Achieve up to 10 real-time transcodes simultaneously in SD and up to 8 in HD. It integrates with your primary SnapStream and preserves the native search metadata—something a third-party transcoding solution cannot do.
