Telestream: View from the Top 2013
At Telestream, we are passionate about providing the best viewer experience on any platform for our customers – which include the world’s leading broadcast and cable companies, a broad range of businesses and millions of consumers. For more than a decade we have focused on delivering the highest quality video for viewing on any device – from traditional television, Mac and Windows computer screens, to a growing number of tablets and mobile devices.
Since our beginnings in 1998, we have continually been at the forefront of innovation in the digital video industry. At a time when video compression was still an art form, we pioneered the automation of video transcoding, forever changing the process. We led the industry in transitioning to file-based media workflows, enabling fast, automated media processing and distribution.
Today, Telestream continues to drive the industry forward by accelerating innovation in this fast-changing market. We recently received the prestigious Engineering Excellence Award from the Hollywood Post Alliance for our video processing technology. Last year we focused on GPU acceleration and co-development of the x264 codec, bringing exceptionally high-quality H.264 transcoding and speed to our products. This year we initiated an open source x265 project to create the world’s most efficient, highest quality H.265 HEVC encoder.
We continue to solve real-world problems by listening and responding to our customers’ needs across the entire digital media landscape. More than a decade of profitability and double-digit growth has enabled us to expand our product offerings through four successful company acquisitions to include a broader range of solutions – bringing live streaming production, screen capture and video editing software, and captioning products for Mac and Windows to the market. This is a very exciting and dynamic time to be a product driven company.
