(Laguna Niguel--March 8, 2013) Simian, the global leader in creative workflow and media management solutions, will unveil its groundbreaking video encoding and uploading app at this year’s South By Southwest Conference in Austin. Designed for production and post-production companies, advertising agencies and other parties that manage large volumes of high-quality media files, the Simian Real Time Video Encoder™ simultaneously encodes and uploads video to the cloud.
“The Simian Real Time Video Encoder™ is the fastest option available and intuitive for even the most novice user,” explains Simian co-founder Brian Atton. “You simply drag a file to the bucket and the app does the rest.” Simian will be exhibiting at South By Southwest at Booth 405-407.
The Simian Real Time Video Encoder saves time by facilitating the encoding on the user’s local computer, thereby eliminating the need to upload uncompressed video to a web-based application. It also simplifies the encoding process with pre-set profiles that ensure optimal video playback on all platforms.
Atton notes that Real Time Video Encoder is especially beneficial for companies that manage large media libraries or work with broadcast-quality video. These files can take hours to upload and are often incompatible with most web-based applications. “With Real Time, we’ve eliminated the delays and ensured proper playback consistently across all platforms,” Atton says.
