Editopia Releases Groundbreaking Encoding SolutionnCode Makes It Easy for Websites to Add User-Generated Video Content (October 30, 2007)
DMN Newswire--2007-10-30--Editopia, (www.editopia.com) an open source technology company for the online video market, today announces the release of NCode, a server-side video encoding solution that enables web developers to easily add video to flash encoding to their websites. NCode will encode virtually any video format to FLV. Its open source and free to use licensed under the GPL. An enterprise edition will soon be available offering support, indemnification and rights for fee based codecs.
NCode supports multiple codecs including H.264 and is entirely cross platform and scaleable with an image processing pipeline making it potentially the most powerful server-side encoding application available to web developers. NCode currently supports both PHP & Java programming environments.
NCode puts the power of video into the hands of smaller websites that have been long overshadowed by big budget heavy hitters. NCode allows webmasters to enable video on their website within minutes. What would normally take weeks, if not months to develop is now readily available with flexible server side features which allow for plug and play support for new codecs, including H.264.
NCode is based on open source technology though developers can still count on an outstanding degree of technical support and clear documentation making the installation and integration process easy and hassle free.
"NCode takes the pain out of video encoding allowing developers to integrate this robust transcoding module into their web environments," said Paul Aitken, Editopia CEO.
"NCode let us get our website live much quicker than any other solution. The fact it was platform agnostic meant it didn't limit our hardware choice and worked the way we work; fast, flexible and dynamically," said Adrian Sevitz, Vzaar CTO.
Editopia provides Open Source products & services that minimize the hassle & costs associated with integrating video on websites - including server side encoding, video editing, and playback products. The easy to use video applications answer the needs of a thriving video community which has always been at the root of Editopia's open source tradition.
