With a large and growing set of containers and codecs competing for market share, it's becoming increasingly difficult to ensure that a piece of content is in the ideal format. With support for Flash, HTML5, and mobile audio, video, and image formats, Twistage's transcoding engine grants publishers the freedom to stop worrying about video encodes and browsers' supported formats. The ability to generate and associate multiple renditions – "assets" in Twistage terminology – with an individual media object allows broad compatibility while dramatically simplifying content management.
Twistage's transcoding engine was built on a combination of dedicated and cloud-based computing hardware. A dynamic provisioning system offers virtually limitless scale, while controlling costs resulting in price-competitive, high-performance transcoding solution for organizations.
For organizations that want dedicated hardware resources, but don't want to deal with deployment updates and server management, Twistage offers two solutions. One option is one or more dedicated cloud-based transcoding servers. Another option is on-premise deployment, a powerful option that enables organizations to avoid pushing uncompressed/lightly compressed content over the Internet.
Twistage offers turnkey setup for organizations that create or maintain accounts with leading cloud transcoding companies, encoding.com and HDCloud. A user simply needs to enter account credentials into the Twistage management console and transcoding settings will be dynamically imported. Organizations need not write a single line of code or worry about any workflow changes, as the integration is completely transparent.
Twistage's robust transcoding solution was built on top of our APIs, and these APIs can be leveraged by organizations to customize how and when transcoding jobs are scheduled.
