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.
