On the back of record growth, and citing Q1 2010 as its most successful quarter on record, Telestream has launched three new products at NAB.
Leading the way is Vantage, a major new enterprise-class workflow design and automation software solution that the company says “revolutionizes” video capture, transcoding, metadata processing, analysis, graphics assembly and video file management in IT video environments.
This is joined by Vantage Transcode, a powerful, enterprise-class server transcoder billed as being at the affordable end of the scale. Built on the award-winning FlipFactory transcode engine – which achieved its highest sales to date during March 2010 – Vantage Transcode offers “the industry’s broadest and deepest file format support” for broadcast, cable, edit, web, mobile, VoD, and IPTV workflows.
Episode 6, meanwhile, is an industry-first, a cross-platform, desktop-to-server software that takes video encoding to the next level by allowing users to pool resources to share encoding work across multiple computers in a mixed environment of Macs and PCs.
Last, but not least, the company’s Wirecast live webcasting software hits v4.0, and adds a new Wirecast Pro flavour that allows anyone to easily create realtime or on-demand professional video broadcasts for the web.
As to those figures, the company is appropriately bullish. “Revenues for enterprise products were up 25% for the first quarter over the previous year, and desktop products finished with strong 45% growth,” it said in a statement. “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.”
