Encoding Services

Quality delivery depends as much on encoding as server architecture. An improperly encoded file will not play smoothly regardless of how well your network or servers are optimized. The need for custom encoding optimization is crucial because of the fine line between sound/video quality, frame rate, display size and delivery bandwidth. Encoding content is a delicate balance of all four of these variables. Our professionals balance on this edge and consistently deliver the highest quality to the slowest connection.

PowerStream prepares your content for streaming by combining hardware/software image enhancement techniques before and during the encoding process. This technique produces the highest quality feed while improving compression and overall image quality. Our techniques perform even on low target bandwidths.
