What we do ?

We started out experimenting with video encoding in 2007. During this period we were running our own e-commerce site. We wanted to present products using their videos hence started to work on video encoding. Since high quality means high bandwidth it was going to be costly. After trying out products that were available on the market we wanted to investigate further on improving the encoding methods in detail. After this period we got familiar with H.264/AVC and moved our work to dedicated linux servers since encoding is a CPU intensive and time consuming job.

As we reached our goals in quality and bandwidth we caught the attention of other companies working in various areas. This encouraged us to develop our software further to meet the demands of these companies. Due to our e-commence background, content monetization and CRM were familiar subjects. As we planed out the structure there were three main areas that needed concentrating on. Content Management, Encoding Services and Video Players.
