Digital Rapids Introduce On2 VP6 Codec Module

Digital Rapids is now shipping the optional On2 VP6 codec module for its Digital Rapids Stream family of media encoding solutions.
The new module enables the creation of On2 VP6-based video for Macromedia Flash from Adobe (commonly referred to as Flash 8 Video), and supports both live Flash Video streaming via the Flash Media Server and encoding to files from live, tape or digital media file inputs.
“As Flash Video continues to rapidly gain popularity among content consumers, we’re seeing significant interest from customers wanting to webcast live with the On2 VP6 codec in addition to file-based encoding and transcoding,” said Shari Beck, Project Manager at Digital Rapids Corporation. “Offering support for On2’s VP6 codec in our highly respected Stream products brings our outstanding quality and speed advantages to both live and file-based VP6 encoding, and makes Digital Rapids Stream the only live VP6 encoding solution supporting multiple-format archiving and a comprehensive professional toolset.”
The optional On2 VP6 support is integrated throughout the Stream systems’ robust workflow and feature set. Content can be encoded to VP6 while simultaneously encoding to other formats, and processing such as graphic overlay can be applied. Live content can also be archived to file in VP6 and other formats seamlessly during live Flash Video streaming. Based on On2’s workstation-level licensing structure, Digital Rapids’ On2 VP6 module includes distribution rights for content created with the VP6 codec, allowing customers to distribute VP6-encoded material professionally without additional licensing fees.
“Digital Rapids’ flexible codec architecture has allowed us to continually expand our encoding workstations as new video format requirements have arisen with our clients,” commented TJ Kudalis, Senior Multimedia Engineer at Internet Broadcasting, a beta tester for the On2 VP6 format option. “The new On2 VP6 support allows us to meet the growing demand for Flash 8 video and takes full advantage of the powerful workflow that we depend on with Digital Rapids solutions, including simultaneous encoding to multiple formats with exceptional performance and throughput.”
Digital Rapids is a leading developer of scalable solutions for content ingest, encoding, transcoding, protection and delivery.
