Telestream Gets Snappy With Support of Flash Formats

Telestream now has comprehensive encode
and decode support for Flash 7, 8 and 9 video formats as a standard
feature in its flagship FlipFactory transcoding workflow automation
applications and powerful Episode batch encoding applications.
Telestream is one of the first companies in the industry to include On2
VP6 Flash decoding and encoding as a standard feature in its products.

“We are pleased to be partnering with Telestream to put our
superior-quality VP6 technology in the hands of all new Telestream
Episode and FlipFactory customers,” said Eero Kaikkonen, Chief
Marketing Officer of On2 Technologies. “Delivering very high quality
over lower data rates, On2 VP6 based Flash Video is much less compute
intensive to encode and playback than H.264, and is not subject to
burdensome content royalties, enabling Telestream’s customers to cost
effectively serve more compelling video.”

“Telestream has lead the industry by providing media professionals with
the broadest format support available and enabling them to automate
their workflows in more ways,” announced Barbara DeHart, VP of
Marketing at Telestream. “We extend that support by adding On2’s VP6
codec for Flash as a standard feature in our transcoding products.
Industry experts have recognized the quality of our Flash 8 encoding,
and Telestream is pleased to be able to offer that quality at an even
greater value to our customers.”
