    We use two Episode machines in a cluster. There is one watch folder and it outputs to one folder, no matter which machine picks up the job. We don’t have to wonder which machines has less jobs queued when we submit it.

    I can run Adobe Media Encoder on multiple machines, but no way to cluster intelligently. If Media Encoder had that feature we would switch now.

    Apple Compressor supports Clustering. Would there be a viable solution there?

    We are a Windows house. No Macs here.

    Sorenson Squeeze Server possibly? Although I don’t have any personal experience with it.

    I don’t doubt that one of the motives behind the push to Cloud encoding (including Telestream Cloud) is that you can leverage computer resources on the backend (cloud side) rather than potential local limitations.

    I don’t know, I am thinking just putting one instance of Media Encoder on network. With GPU processing, it might do more anyway than two Episode machines.
