Hybrik Cloud Integrates Dolby Vision Encoding

Hybrik says it plans to support Dolby Vision encoding in its cloud-based transcoding platform to accelerate Dolby HDR adoption.

"Dolby Vision continues to build momentum as the premiere HDR delivery format," said Ron Geller, VP, Worldwide Content Relations, Dolby Laboratories." Our collaboration with Hybrik delivers on Dolby’s commitment to make the Dolby Vision content encoding process more broadly accessible to service providers across the industry."

Hybrik’s transcoding is based on Amazon’s AWS cloud platform and provides transcoding, quality control, accelerated file transfer, large-scale storage, and streaming.

"We provide the best quality consumer experiences for our customers in a way that drastically improves their time to market." said Andy Shenkler, EVP and Chief Solutions & Technology Officer, Sony DADC New Media Solutions. "It was with that purpose in mind that we originally integrated Hybrik as our primary content processing mechanism. Hybrik’s addition of Dolby Vision allows us to further accelerate the realization of our clients’ needs for visually compelling content.”
