Our Transcoding Platform

Our transcoding platform, the heart of AberFast, resides in the industry-leading AWS Cloud. With redundancy at every level and the industry’s best software, AberFast has become the proven provider of broadcast-ready video files with embedded-closed captioning.

Our Transcoders

If you know about transcoder software, you’ve probably heard of Telestream. We have a bank of Telestream Vantage Lightspeed transcoders running on the latest AWS GPU servers. They take your ProRes, H.264, DV or DNxHD file and rip it apart, insert caption data and then put it back together in multiple high-quality broadcast-ready MXF, LXF, GXF, MPEG files.

Phone Number Inserts

If you are currently doing phone number inserts, you know how much editor time it takes to do each version and then output to a file. Say goodbye to all that wasted time—Aberfast will create a template for each station you deliver a program that allows for a unique phone number to be placed into the program at one or multiple points. Imagine 20 different stations getting 20 different programs and all you had to do was send AberFast one HD master file without phone numbers. Now that's an awesome use of technology!

Our Quality Control & Correction

So you didn't know you were supposed to edit to the bars and tones and you just threw them on afterward. Yikes! Okay, relax. Aberfast has a QC and correction software solution that we run all our producer videos through. It corrects both audio and video levels to broadcast legal standards. What if it's only a ten-second segment? Don't worry, our software only corrects the frames that are beyond the legal limits. The rest of your program will be just the way you left it. Now that's pretty smart software!

Our Internet Pipe

Hi-resolution broadcast files are often 20-plus GBs. Ever try to upload or download a 20 GB file? Want to know how fast we can do it? Our record is under 2 minutes! If you have a large pipe and want to move a hi-res video file fast, AberFast has you covered.

“Technology is always changing in our industry. That’s why we rely on Aberdeen every day for better quality services. Their on-time delivery methods ensure an easier workflow, and their customer service is second-to-none. I highly recommend them.”
