Cinnafilm® and Wohler Set Standard for File-Based Media Retiming With Release of Tachyon® Wormholeâ„¢

(Las Vegas, Nevada–April 7, 2014) Cinnafilm® and Wohler Technologies today announced the release of Cinnafilm’s Tachyon® Wormhole™, an automated file-based retiming solution that enables up to a plus or minus 10 percent runtime adjustment while preserving not only video and audio quality, but also closed caption integrity. Based on Cinnafilm’s popular Tachyon Standards Transcoding™ plug-in for the Wohler RadiantGrid Intelligent Media Transformation Platform™, Tachyon Wormhole gives time back to broadcasters, allowing them to realize new revenue opportunities without materially altering the viewer’s experience of their media assets.

“Tachyon Wormhole allows users to eliminate nearly $500,000 worth of specialized hardware with a single server equipped with two graphics cards, at a price that is a fraction of the cost of the baseband hardware it is replacing,” said Ernie Sanchez, chief operations officer of Cinnafilm. “Never before has a single commodity-hardware-based solution replaced so many pieces of dedicated SDI hardware.”
