HelmutIO - Render farm

The 'I' in HelmutIO stands for 'Ingest', highlighting how this Helmut component enables both web ingest and the import of watch folders or panel extensions. The 'O' stands for 'Outgest' and describes how Premiere Pro sequences and/or After Effects compositions can be exported using this tool. HelmutIO can transcode content, manage metadata or move assets to different places. HelmutIO takes on the role of a render farm using the split-and-stitch technique; in other words, it distributes sequences across all available render nodes to make best possible use of the available capacity. HelmutIO is not bound to Adobe Premiere Pro and is open in its interaction with the Adobe Media Encoder.

Import. Export. Render.

Editors and material managers can use HelmutIO to monitor their ongoing jobs by tracking all ingest and outgest processes. HelmutIO provides assistance as a tool for administration and prioritisation. Individual jobs can be located, started, stopped, re-started or delayed in HO. Users can keep track of all processes while HelmutIO renders in the background. This frees up valuable time for editors to focus on their important creative duties.
