​UltraFlix Selects Hybrik for 4K Cloud Transcoding

UltraFlix, a provider of 4K streaming video, has selected Hybrik for all its cloud-based transcoding.

UltraFlix's library of more than 1,400 titles in 4K UHD needed to be transcoded into a wide variety of bitrates and codecs. By using Hybrik's cloud-based services, UltraFlix can on-board new content, as well as re-encode existing content using compression techniques and formulas such as HDR and HEVC.

“We are excited to use the Hybrik system to manage all of our cloud-based transcoding operations,” said David R. Foley, founder and senior technologist at UltraFlix. “They provide us with an unbeatable combination of scalability, quality, performance, and price. Our technical team is excited to combine our proprietary encoding formulas with the amazing technology that Hybrik offers, allowing us both huge savings and increased performance in our cloud encoding operations.”

Hybrik takes advantage of the Amazon Web Services spot market, which provides customers with a cost-effective solution to constantly changing processing needs.
