Ripcode Integrates On2 VP6 Codec For Hardware Accelerated 2-Pass Encoding Appliance

On2 Technologies Inc., a leader in video compression software and solutions, and RipCode, Inc. has announced that RipCode has integrated the On2 VP6 codec, which is used in Adobe Flash Player 8 and 9, for the industry’s first hardware accelerated 2-pass encoding appliance for VP6 recently launched by RipCode.
On2 VP6 based Flash video is among the most widely used formats for Internet video. As a result of this agreement, On2 VP6 based services will be able to deliver dynamic transcoding for video on demand, enabling broadcasters, syndicators, or user generated video sites to eliminate storage of multiple file formats and deliver files from their entire video library for any application.
"In keeping with our vision to provide 'any video, anywhere', our partnership with RipCode is a definitive step towards furthering this strategy," said Bill Joll, president and CEO of On2. “RipCode’s on-demand transcoding appliance is particularly important as VP6 based Flash video is rapidly extending its dominant position in web video to support mobile and device based playback. RipCode’s hardware accelerated 2-pass encoding for VP6 is a compact and robust transcoding solution, which allows media companies and service providers even more flexibility in delivering VP6 for Flash video content to any size screen."
The advanced 2-pass, single rack unit RipCode appliance replaces between 10-20 general purpose servers. In addition to delivering significantly higher encoding capacity than legacy software solutions, RipCode’s consolidated, high concurrency, On Demand Transcoding℠ allows simultaneous creation of content for delivery across multiple service platforms such as mobile, broadcast and Internet, and different device platforms such as PCs, mobile phones, and portable devices such as iPod.
"On2 VP6 for Flash video is a widely accepted format within our customer base," said Brendon Mill, CEO of RipCode. "Therefore, we’ve developed our transcoding appliance to provide consolidated, high concurrency 2-pass processing to rapidly and efficiently create VP6 content, while also reducing our customers’ hardware, storage and energy use."
RipCode and On2 are also collaborating on future product deliverables with additional announcements planned for 2008. Along with the licensing of VP6 in October of 2006, RipCode also licensed On2’s advanced TrueMotion VP7 technology. On2’s VP7 technology is designed to encode quicker, decode in fewer cycles, and with less decoding complexity than other compression schemes, making the VP7 codec the ideal choice for high volume applications and low cost mass-market consumer devices.
