Introduction to Cloud Transcoding with the Rackspace Cloud and Encoding.com

Video encoding or transcoding is the process of converting digital media to the correct format, size, and quality for playback/streaming on the Internet or mobile devices. Until Encoding.com was launched, the video transcoding market was served only by inflexible, complicated, and expensive hardware or software solutions that required in-house technical resources to set up and maintain. Encoding.com provides a flexible cloud based video transcoding service that is deeply integrated with the Rackspace Cloud Files storage location. Within minutes of signing up for our service, clients have access (via API, Watch Folder or Web Interface) to a studio-class video encoding platform with virtually limitless on demand capacity and a simple pay-as-you-go billing model.
