Smart Tasker

Now you can Pause, Resume and Re-Prioritize as required, tasks as varied as transcoding, HSM storage or network file transfer. Now that's what we call highest efficiency and lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

Native Frame Rate Conversion Support

CLEAR Operations Cloud gets an upgrade with Standards Conversion support allowing for Frame Rate Conversion as part of any content operations workflow. Trust CLEAR Media ERP Suite to delight and not just satisfy you -- support extends to auto transformation of Subtitle and for any annotation and edit performed on one frame rate version.

With deep search, data overlays and filtering possibilities, you are certain to package one heck of a story.

CLEAR Player with Data overlays & advanced security support

The secure, multi-track and frame accurate CLEAR Player gets a facelift! Now integrate and overlay Live Data with a growing proxy, and enjoy advanced key encryption for piracy protection.
