Telestream has announced the launch of version 6.5 of its Episode multi-format encoding software.

The new version includes support for closed captions, the latest formats, multi-bitrate encoding and multi-track audio.

"Thousands of customers rely on Episode to process and deliver hundreds of thousands of hours of video monthly," said Barbara DeHart, vice president of desktop business at Telestream. "It's important to us that Episode be stable, fast and up-to-date with the latest technologies."

Episode provides high quality, affordable transcoding for individuals and work groups. Preserving the integrity of original content while transferring it between incompatible systems is a constant challenge for post-production professionals. Episode's transcoding engine is designed for the entire production workflow maintaining high quality files from the camera to edit and all the way to final delivery. Episode also provides built-in collaboration and clustering to join multiple Mac and PC machines together to provide affordable transcoding scalability.

"We're excited to release Episode 6.5. The support for closed captions, multi-bitrate streaming, multi-track audio and new formats will help our customers take advantage of new technologies and build more complex workflows," said DeHart.
