Best-in-class video processing, a 10-bit encoding engine and fine-tuning compression combine to allow you to generate pristine picture quality. Episode produces brilliant "true to the original" results for simple transcoding jobs as well as more complex encoding jobs such as standards conversion. In addition bumpers, trailers and watermarks can also be added to enhance and protect your video content.


Episode's multi-threaded encoding engine is capable of utilizing the full power of multi-core workstations. In high volume workflows, Episode Engine maximizes throughput with unlimited simultaneous encodes. When encoding speed is critical, Episode can meet the demand with its unique Split-and-Stitch® distributed encoding.

Split-and-Stitch technology, available in Episode Engine, enables distributed and segmented encoding for any supported format, taking advantage of all available CPU power. Whether on a single workstation or across a cluster of machines, Split-and-Stitch
is able to achieve truly remarkable encoding speeds.

Episode supports the widest range of formats in its class allowing you to repurpose media for websites, mobile devices, television, archiving, disk authoring and more. Whatever your encoding needs may be, Episode can handle them.


Episode was made with the creative professional in mind. Extensive control of codec and filtration parameters, along with a real-time preview, gives you complete hands-on control. In file-based workflows, automated and shared transcoding are a must and Episode can easily be configured to automatically pick up and deliver files to network shares and FTP servers. Episode can also be easily integrated into larger workflows via its command line and XML-RPC interfaces.

Equally at home on a laptop, in the field, or working as part of a cluster of dedicated machines, Episode can be reconfigured quickly and easily to meet the needs of the day, or the hour. Episode's unique one-click clustering and file sharing capabilities make "prep and submit" encoding workflows easy.. Episode's new visual workflow builder simplifies the encoding process and helps identify functions being performed and the status of work in progress.

Collaboration and clustering are at the core of Episode's design. Easily join multiple machines together, both Mac and PC, and share encoding work among workstations. There is no need for costly add-ons or IT assistance. Episode's built-in file sharing system makes offloading work from one machine to another a snap. Simply prep your encoding work, send it off to the cluster and get it back when it's done.
