​Telestream Debuts SaaS Cloud

Telestream is using the 2016 NAB show to debut a video encoding software as a service with support for Apple ProRes.

The service will offer video transcoding and uses an API to automate and integrate into customer workflows. File transfer and encoding times are available from any location since Telestream Cloud leverages multiple cloud service providers including Google Cloud Platform, Amazon Web Services and Rackspace.

“For media that resides in the cloud and is destined for OTT distribution, Telestream Cloud takes a fraction of the time to commission and operate compared with an on-premises approach,” says Barbara DeHart, VP Desktop and Cloud Businesses. “Telestream Cloud pricing is structured as pay-as you-go monthly subscriptions for quick scaling as your workflow changes with no upfront expenses.”

Telestream Cloud features certified ProRes presets to deliver video files that conform to Apple standards.

“Since its introduction, ProRes has revolutionized the post market, fundamentally changing the toolkit available to the widest audience of pro editors, and has become a standard mezzanine format for many media workflows,” commented DeHart. “Now, Telestream is providing new impetus to this revolution, providing confidence of error free encoded files that unauthorized implementations might produce. Our elegant Cloud infrastructure offers all users a low-cost means of producing high quality ProRes files for their media workflows.”
