• Dolby Media Encoder

    The Dolby Media Encoder Client sends jobs over a network to a centralized server running the Dolby Media Encoder Server. You can install any number of additional client seats to meet the needs of large postproduction facilities.

    Faster-Than-Real-Time Encoding

    The Dolby® Media Encoder provides custom metadata instruction for each job that is then submitted to the encoder for processing and encoding. Multiple clients can address the Dolby Media Encoder on a centralized server, or each client computer can encode jobs locally on the client computer.

    • Options for optimization of datarates and file sizes
