Like many successful ideas, Encoding.com was born out of necessity. In 2007, our focus was building and managing online video sites for leading brands. Similar to our customers today, we faced the daunting challenge of transcoding and preparing video content for playback across an expanding and fragmented array of consumer devices. Additional investment into our on-premise encoding infrastructure was an expensive proposition and failed to address critical needs such as ongoing support for new formats and the ability to rapidly scale processing capacity to meet spikey project demands. A thorough look at the market for available solutions yielded nothing that would solve our requirements.
Encoding.com was quickly recognized as a pioneer in the use of cloud computing with its selection as an Amazon Startup Challenge finalist in the fall of 2008. Since then, we have become the world’s largest cloud media processing service transcoding millions of videos each month for thousands of companies including top media & entertainment brands, agencies, lifestyle brands, enterprises and other video service providers.
Today, our award winning platform has grown to become the first media workflow automation solution on the market offering a comprehensive suite of Cloud Media services including high-volume transcoding, digital rights management (DRM), playout graphics and editing, adaptive bitrate packaging and video hosting. We view ourselves as a video workflow automation company and continually strive to simplify complex video workflow challenges. We pride ourselves on our customer support and enjoy working closely with video teams around the world. To learn more, please drop us a note.
