Vendor Spotlight: Telestream

Telestream, based in Nevada City, Calif. (with additional offices in Westwood, Mass,), is a privately held company that supports customers around the world in the Broadcast, Professional Video Production, Education, Corporate and Military market segments. The company is celebrating its 25th year in business in 2022, offering relevant products, systems and services that stretch from “glass to glass.”

The Telestream portfolio spans the entire digital media lifecycle, including video capture and ingest, live and on-demand encoding and transcoding, captioning, playout, delivery, and live streaming, as well as automation and orchestration of the entire workflow. The company’s solutions make it possible to reliably get video content to any audience, regardless of how it is created, distributed or viewed.

“Telestream is focused on helping customers achieve their business objectives across the media supply chain with our increasingly robust set of capabilities” said Jon Wilson, President/Chief Operating Officer at Telestream,whether on premise, in the cloud or a hybrid approach. We recognize that the industry moves at its own pace and we now have the tools, systems and engineering expertise to strengthen their businesses and make their operations more flexible to take on whatever is required, both today and in the future.”

As a result of in-house engineering and several company acquisitions, Telestream enjoyed double-digit growth in 2021 and it continues to seek out new opportunities for expansion. The company offers products and solutions throughout the media workflow, starting with test and measurement (due to Tek Video acquisition in 2019), media processing and workflow automation (Vantage, developed in-house), content management (due to EcoDigital acquisition in 2020 and Masstech, in 2021), video monitoring (IneoQuest acquisition in 2017), remote and on-premise production (WireCast, due to Vara software acquisition) and finally video streaming (Sherpa Digital Media acquisition in 2021).

Thanks to the acquisition of Encoding.com early this year, Telestream is now ideally suited to help broadcasters make the transition cloud—whether solely in the cloud or a hybrid approach of cloud and on-premise—and take advantage of all of its inherent benefits of scalability and flexibility. The goal, whether in the cloud or on premise, is for its customers to have similarly successful experiences regardless of the deployment model.

The company’s technology is also renowned for working well with third-party solutions.

“Point products aside, Telestream is currently focused on combining all of its technology solutions to support customers across the media supply chain as a one-stop-shop,” said Wilson. “Combining all of our capabilities allows customers to do more work, spend less and realize a fast return on investment."

Robust products, reliable customer support, and quick response to evolving needs in complex video environments have gained Telestream a worldwide reputation as an industry standard for automated and encoding-based digital media workflows.
