Telestream makes FlipFactory more accessible

Telestream has new bundling and pricing specials for its
flagship FlipFactory transcoding workflow automation product line.
Telestream’s FlipFactory summer specials include FlipFactory New Media,
a new bundling priced at $4,995. FlipFactory New Media targets the
rapidly growing new media market and its requirement for high-volume
publishing and distribution of video and audio in multiple formats for
today’s diverse viewing audiences on the web, podcast, DVDs and mobile

“Since its inception seven years ago, FlipFactory has grown into a
valuable multi-stage workflow automation solution. With the
proliferation of video on the web and mobile devices, we’re seeing high
demand for basic, scalable transcoding solutions that include the
formats new media users need,” said David Heppe, president of
Telestream. “Having experienced tremendous success with our Mac-based
Episode Engine solutions in this lower price range, we’re excited to
offer FlipFactory at these special summer prices. This will enable any
content owner or service provider to own the industry’s leading
transcoding solution, including the smaller video-sharing web hoster
and broadcasters requiring dozens of servers.”

Windows server -based software applications that automate high-volume
workflows for video professionals. FlipFactory is now used by thousands
of users and supports over 120 digital media formats and devices. It
