Following on from Digital Origin, Terran and Wired, ICE is the latest company to become part of Media 100’s streaming empire. However, Media 100 is only acquiring the technologies and brand from ICE. The boards and software will be manufactured and developed by Media 100 under the ICE name.
ICE (Integrated Computing Engines) develops and manufactures acceleration boards for video editing and compression. The boards, which work with both Mac and Windows PCs, reduce rendering times dramatically. Only a single board is needed per workstation, with software plugging the board into applications from Premiere and Final Cut Pro to After Effects and Media Cleaner Pro.
ICE will continue to support all of the products the boards currently work with, including all of the editing packages that compete with Media 100 i and iFinish.
Terms of the asset acquisition have not been disclosed.
