(San Diego, California--April 13, 2009) Sorenson Media today announced that it will showcase Sorenson Squeeze 5 and the Sorenson Spark Developers Kit at the NAB Show in Las Vegas, April 20-23, 2009. Sorenson Media will be located in booth No. SL5428 in the south lower hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Embracing the Sorenson Squeeze tradition of producing high-quality video without a complicated workflow, the industry-leading Sorenson Squeeze 5 compression and encoding application enables users to output content in all of the most popular formats, including Flash, QuickTime and MPEG-4, as well as in HD for MPEG-2, Flash, VC-1, and H.264. In 2008, Sorenson Squeeze 5 received the Vanguard Award from Digital Content Producer magazine and Streaming Media magazine's Readers Choice Top Award for Encoding Software for the second year in a row.
The Sorenson Spark Software Developers Kit gives developers the power to add the most popular video decoder, Sorenson Spark, to nearly any portable consumer electronic device for playback of high-speed Adobe Flash-based video. Sorenson Spark pioneered internet video by being the first codec used in Macromedia Flash, now Adobe Flash, today's de facto standard for Web video. It is the industry's most ubiquitous video decoder, exclusively enabling the playback of hundreds of millions of videos over the Internet. Sorenson Spark is the codec currently used on YouTube, which is why device manufacturers such as Sony, Ingenient and Verizon have licensed the codec for use in products ranging from mobile phones and netbooks to the Verizon Hub, a new touch screen home phone system.
"Sorenson Squeeze 5 and Sorenson Spark are just two of the many products that have made the Sorenson Media brand synonymous with quality and innovation in digital video for over a decade," said Sorenson Media CEO Peter Csathy. "Because we have the best video technology and talent in the industry, Sorenson Media enjoys a loyal connection with partners and customers."
