"These finalists represent the best of the best in the eyes of the people who really matter: the people who use online video technologies every day," said Streaming Media editor Eric Schumacher-Rasmussen. "The fact that more than 7,000 people cast more than 58,000 votes in our 22 categories is just one more indicator of just how exciting and vibrant this industry is, and how passionately people feel about the products they use."
Telestream’s recent launch of Episode 6 brought Episode® Engine enterprise-class video transcoding software to Windows users. Episode Engine offers scalability from a single Mac or PC workstation up to very large multi-node, multi-platform server clusters. Support for virtually any video and audio file format simplifies format conversion in multi-format environments. With unlimited parallel processing and exclusive Split-and-Stitch® distributed encoding, Episode Engine video transcoding software is optimized for performance and speed.
Wirecast® desktop video production software allows Mac and PC users to easily create professional webcasts for live and on-demand viewing. With prices starting at $449 and features that include chroma key, layering, transitions and lower-thirds, Wirecast webcasting software offers a cost-effective alternative to hardware broadcast solutions for streaming live events to the web.
"Episode Engine and Wirecast were developed to help users create compelling content and easily get it on the web and mobile devices for viewing anytime, anywhere," said Barbara DeHart, VP of Marketing at Telestream. "We are thrilled by the response and vote of confidence these products have received from Streaming Media readers."
Recent market research indicates a rapidly growing market for online video. TechCrunch coverage in September of a recent comScore report states that time spent watching live web video rose nearly 650% over the past year. An In-Stat report issued in August reports the multiformat transcoders market will grow by more than 250% over the five-year period ending 2014. [October 22, 2010]
