Telestream Defies the Economy with Record Growth and Major New Products

Telestream, a provider of digital media tools and workflow solutions, arrived at the NAB Show this week with three major new products and record-breaking revenue growth. Despite a volatile economy, Telestream cited Q1 2010 as the most successful quarter on record. Revenues for enterprise products were up 25% for the first quarter over the previous year, and desktop products finished with strong 45% growth. This follows more than a decade of strong, double-digit consecutive annual revenue growth.

Today, more than 80% of the top broadcast station groups, media companies and Fortune 100 companies, along with millions of consumers rely on Telestream products. With the burst of new products being introduced at the NAB Show, Telestream’s customers and business will be further augmented.

“Building on our strength of growth and products, we are continuing to offer innovative new solutions to better meet the needs of our customers and to help build the digital media world of the next decade,” said Dan Castles, CEO of Telestream. “We are launching major new products in our core file-based product areas, as well as a key new product for the live webcasting market. This follows two years of intense research and development, an acquisition to further expand our offerings, two global leadership awards in the video transcoder market in 2009, all topped by record first quarter sales and profitability.”

Telestream’s new products address major challenges and opportunities in the video industry. As companies continue to face cost reductions, declining revenues from traditional distribution channels, and the need to support a growing number of new channels, Telestream brings products to NAB that address all these needs. The new Telestream solutions improve operational efficiency, help facilitate the migration to IT and open doors to new business opportunities, including in the live streaming space.
