Command-Line MPEG Video Editing and Repurposing
M2 Edit-CL delivers MPEG and H.264/AVC video editing, frame dumping and scene-change detection capabilities through a command line interface. Ideal for batch processing or integrating with web server back ends or custom applications.
Utilizing Mediaware's proven MPEG video processing technology , M2 Edit-CL contains a feature-filled set of functions to provide command-line processing of compressed digital video.
M2 Edit-CL provides a unique combination of automated, frame accurate, long GOP editing in the compressed digital domain, while preserving the highest possible image quality.
M2 Edit-CL enables MPEG-2 Transport, Program and Video-only editing as well as MPEG-1, Systems, VCD and Video-only editing as a command line process. It is also able to detect shots (cuts only), work with CMX-style EDL’s with simple transitions/effects and to do still image encoding. Output can be in MPEG or streaming formats.
Its command-line editing capabilities make M2 Edit-CL a powerful tool for reliably automating repetitive and onerous video editing tasks and for providing the desired output for further upstream video processing or display.
M2 Edit-CL's many functions can easily be incorporated into batch file scripting which contributes to a larger ISR video exploitation or broadcast video processing workflow:
- In Broadcast M2 Edit-CL is being used to automatically composite clips and encode graphic stills together into an MPEG-2 Transport stream for digital broadcast
- In Video On Demand production it is being used to automatically find advertisements suitable for one audience and replace them with more appropriate ones for another
- In news, sports and entertainment applications, frame accurate EDL’s are being created on laptop based conformance or proxy editors (MPEG-1) and sent over the internet or intranet for automatic/batch editing and re-publishing on a central server
