DMN Newswire--2007-8-15--Telestream, the leading provider of media encoding workflow solutions, today announced that its Episode Engine Pro software has been adopted by MINICK, the pioneer of interactive mobile applications. MINICK is a leading mobile services provider which develops and operates mobile applications for network operators such as Vodafone, T-Mobile, Telefonica, and Swisscom, for entertainment companies including MTV, Channel 4, and Universal Music, as well as for corporate clients in mobile marketing.

?We needed a server-based solution which could encode a wide range of video input and output formats for mobile devices and which could easily integrate with other systems, said Rasmus Joergensen, Director of International Products and Projects for MINICK. ?Episode met our requirements exactly in terms of input and output format flexibility, compatibility with MINICK systems and reliability. Getting out-of-the-box software helped us focus on our core competencies while leaving the codecs to the pros.

Following its adoption of Telestreams Episode products, MINICK recently purchased its fourth Episode Engine Pro server-based application to handle media encoding into mobile formats for more than 60 content providers worldwide. Episode is unique in that it offers scalable desktop to server-based media encoding. MINICKs internal content producers use the Episode desktop applications to encode content ranging from 30-second clips to full-feature films.

Episode Engine Pros are installed with the MINICK platform at the companys hosting center in Hamburg, Germany. As their business services continue to grow for mobile operators and entertainment companies, MINICK takes full advantage of Episodes scalability by adding more Episode Engines to their workflow.
