HD Cloud, a leading on-demand transcoding provider, today announced, its support for Adobe® Flash® Media Server 3.5 software. HD Cloud now offers automated conversion to all formats required for Adobe Flash Media Server 3.5 software-compatible Multi-Bitrate players, using Adobe-certified best practices.
HD Cloud today also announced an innovative promotion for Streaming Media West Conference attendees, and will award 10 terabytes of free transcoding to one Adobe Flash Media Server 3.5 customer following the conclusion of the show. The promotion will be jointly marketed by HD Cloud and Adobe at Adobe’s booth #406 in the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose.
“Adobe Flash Media Server 3.5 multi-bitrate playback allows publishers to offer the most compelling broadband experience online. Yet, migrating to multi-bitrate playback presents significant challenges to traditional encoding workflows,” said HD Cloud CEO Nicholas Butterworth. “Our on-demand transcoding solution will help streamline the encoding process for customers using Adobe Flash Media Server 3.5.”
In rolling out Adobe Flash Media Server 3.5 software, HD Cloud customers will be able to take full advantage of cloud-based services for H.264 encoding, bandwidth optimization, dynamic streaming for multiple renditions, interactivity, pre-built services for live and on-demand streaming, and other capabilities to deliver the highest quality end user experience for their online video content.
“HD Cloud makes on-demand transcoding a reliable, powerful option for Adobe Flash Media Server 3.5 customers,” said Scott Wellwood, director of business development for the Dynamic Media Organization at Adobe. “Adobe works with a number of top-tier encoding hardware, software, and service vendors, and we are pleased to count HD Cloud among them.”
