Piranha Releases ‘Piranha Stream’
Piranha Inc.(www.piranha.com), a developer of data compression solutions, announced the availability of Piranha Stream today.
Piranha Stream's technology features real time, full-frame rate encoding of streaming video files. Piranha states that their technology produces a smaller file then the three leading streaming video platforms while maintaining comparable image quality.

For benchmark purposes, the company established the following criteria: Real time encoding; frame rate -- 24 frames per second (film frame rate); or 30 frames per second (video frame rate); frame sizes 320 pixels x 240 pixels and greater; and image quality that is visually comparable to industry leaders.
