Viostream has been hard at work delivering a brand new Transcoding platform. Our Transcoding platform is the system that takes your uploaded videos and converts them into the required formats for Adaptive Bitrate Delivery.
Our old platform was nearing end of life and provided some limitations from a Technology and Geographic standpoint. Our new platform addresses all of these problems, and opens the door for exciting new advancements in the way we deliver video.
Our new platform enhances the Viostream experience by strengthening the following key areas:
Our transcoding platform can now take virtually any format/type of video as an input from our customers - including H265 videos. We are not yet changing our playback formats, however our new platform allows us to be more dynamic and change when these formats become more ubiquitous.
Our new platform is built exclusively on cloud services. This allows for greater Availability of our services. Availability is the measure of the reliability of a system, of the degree to which a system is operable.
Another benefit to developing a new Transcoding platform in the cloud era is to build with Scalability in mind. Our new platform allows Viostream to continue to transcode videos no matter how many videos are uploaded - whilst still maintaining our fast transcoding times.
