Twistage provides, out-of-the-box, its own cloud-based encoding solution, as well as integrations with HDCloud and Encoding.com. It can also be integrated into any other third-party cloud-based encoding solution, including an encoding solution hosted on premise or at a datacenter. This allows the use of proprietary or custom encoding software. Provided that there are APIs, Twistage's encoding rules engine can communicate with remote servers to manage the encoding process. Alternately, this could be configured in reverse, allowing an organization to host the content while using the Twistage cloud encoding service.
