Hostworks Selects Digital Rapids Encoders For Media Foundry Live Streaming Service

Digital Rapids have announced that Australia-based digital solutions provider Hostworks has selected Digital Rapids encoders for the new Hostworks Media Foundry live streaming service.
Hostworks has a long history of delivering live and on-demand content for major entertainment and enterprise brands. With the continued growth of online viewing, Hostworks continues to expand the services it offers for online media delivery.
For the Hostworks Media Foundry service, the Digital Rapids encoders transform live HD or SD inputs into both live streams and file-based outputs in multiple formats and bit rates to reach audiences on devices and screen sizes ranging from smartphones to 'smart' TVs.
Installed at a key satellite downlink facility owned by Hostworks' parent company Broadcast Australia, the encoders are used for live 24/7 streaming and ad-hoc live events. Outputs are delivered via the Hostworks Content Distribution Service (HCDS), enabling adaptive bit rate live and on-demand distribution from high-capacity infrastructure located in multiple geographical locations.
"A key factor in our selection of Digital Rapids was the very responsive support provided by their team, who were able to provide solutions to a number of specific requirements," said Mark Heppleston, Media and Broadcast Manager at Hostworks. "The Digital Rapids encoding platform has enabled us to develop and launch new high-quality services for live adaptive bit rate HD video streaming, while Digital Rapids' support and expertise have helped to save us time and bring our services to market with efficiency, precision and a fast turnaround."
"Service providers such as Hostworks supporting premium clientele require an encoding solution with proven reliability, outstanding vendor support and exceptional visual quality to protect and elevate the reputations and brand image of both themselves and their clients," said Clive Vickery, Managing Director, EMEA and Asia at Digital Rapids. "Our encoders are perfectly suited to such applications, and we’re thrilled that Hostworks has chosen them for their new live streaming service initiative."
"We have worked closely with Hostworks to help them meet the specific requirements of a variety of their high-profile clients, and are excited that our solutions are playing a key role in the launch of their new Hostworks Media Foundry offering," added Neville Paterson, Sales Manager, Asia Pacific at Digital Rapids.
