bitcodin.com is the future of transcoding, providing a high performance cloud-service to transcode multimedia content orders of magnitudes faster than real-time, even for highest 4K qualities and beyond.
[What is announced?]
bitcodin.com is a high-performance adaptive bitrate transcoding and streaming platform for cutting edge media formats such as MPEG-DASH and HLS, which are natively supported in HTML5 platforms. Thus, bitcodin.com is enabling highest video quality on the web, mobile and home entertainment devices, up to HD, 4K and beyond, while keeping the distribution costs low due the usage of efficient HTTP infrastructure.
[What is unique?]
The bitcodin platform is designed and built from the ground up to scale massively on standard public and private cloud infrastructure, while enabling orders of magnitudes faster transcoding than real time (e.g., a 2-hour HD video in minutes). The fast transcoding enables even the largest on-demand video providers to distribute uploaded media virtually instantly during the upload and transcoding process with no delay. Leveraging the flexibility of the new MPEG-DASH standard – which is fully integrated into bitcodin – content providers can use cutting-edge technologies such as the native DASH adaptive streaming support in HTML5, as well as the native DRM support using MPEG-CENC based upon that. This enables distribution and playback across web and mobile platforms, while being more light-weight and battery efficient than heavy plugins like Silverlight or Flash. bitcodin.com furthermore encourages separation of video, audio and subtitle streams, which helps bitcodin customers to save up to 75 % on their storage costs while increasing distribution efficiency and reducing CDN costs.
