Tokyo, Japan - August 30th, 2019 - Nekojarashi Inc. (hereinafter, “Nekojarashi”), a leading major collaborative cloud storage provider for broadcasting, media and creative industries in Japan, and Morpho, Inc. (hereinafter, “Morpho”), a global leader in video / image processing solutions and artificial intelligence (AI) imaging solutions, will be showcasing “Setaria.cloud”, a cloud video transcoding and processing service at this year’s largest show in Europe for media, entertainment, and technology, IBC2019.
Among the new additions since Setaria.cloud’s release on February 2019, Nekojarashi is happy to announce that Apple ProRes (decode) will be officially supported in Setaria.cloud after today’s update. Furthermore, exclusive to IBC2019, the upcoming new Transcode Workflow will be shown for the first time as a Beta Version where visitors will be able to get a chance for a direct first-hand experience.
Transcode Workflow is a new upcoming feature offered on Setaria.cloud that allows easy, workflow-based multi video transcoding from a single master into delivery formats used by major streaming services with just a few clicks. Efficient, and easy to use workflows are vital in broadcasting and media industries as it enables them to further optimize their video processing flow which ultimately affects time and cost.
To promote better usage flexibility, Setaria.cloud has also recently released an API documentation which can be found at https://docs.setaria.cloud. The publicly exposed API of Setaria.cloud API Gateway allows secure integration for automation as an alternative usage to its user-friendly GUI-based web browser version. Virtually all major features are available via API (usage tracking, high speed transcoding, processing, etc.). Some example projected use cases are such as when a locally developed application would like to integrate features from Setaria.cloud to allow easy feature expansion, or a script within an existing video processing flow to automatically transcode or process videos.
IBC is one of the largest events for media, entertainment, and technology in Europe. Every year, the show introduces new equipment and services related to media and technology, as well as hosting innovative talks and conferences during the event.

1. Video Transcoding
Transcode to and from popular video codecs such as H.264, H.265, and etc. as well as broadcasting codecs like ProRes, Avid DNxHD®, XAVC, and XDCAM.
2. Video Processing
Super-resolution / Frame Interpolation / De-noise / Texture Preserving De-noise / Wide Dynamic Range Correction / Stabilization / Hyperlapse / Slow Motion / De-flash / De-flicker
Glimpse is a feature that allows you to have 5-seconds preview before you start processing your video, and a real-time side-by-side preview during the processing. This allows you to have a “glimpse” at how user’s video will look without having to wait for the completed result.
4. External Cloud Storage Integration
Setaria.cloud allows storage integration with Amazon S3, Google Cloud Storage, and Alibaba Cloud OSS for much easier asset management and access. More public storages are scheduled to be released at a future date.
