Elemental Technologies unveils Elemental Cloud; announces partnership with Red Bee Media
Elemental Technologies will unveil Elemental Cloud at IBC. Elemental Cloud is a purpose-built platform designed to securely manage high-volume, enterprise-class video solutions on Amazon Web Services (AWS). The company also announced the market release of Elemental Server Cloud Edition (CE), a file-based solution for high speed, multi-format video conversion in the cloud.
These new cloud offerings combine unmatched video processing solutions from Elemental with the scalability, elasticity, and flexibility of the AWS infrastructure. This solution enables professional media and entertainment companies to enhance multiscreen video offerings and grow audiences while generating greater revenues and decreasing capital expenses.
“The rapid growth of online and mobile video along with the dynamic evolution of formats, standards and distribution make cloud computing a natural complement to on-premise processing for large-scale video encoding applications,” said Sam Blackman, CEO and co-founder of Elemental Technologies. “This gives our customers maximum speed, flexibility and price-performance in creating video content targeted to multiple screens and devices.”
“We’re pleased to work with Elemental to bring industry-leading cloud-based video encoding and transcoding to customers,” said Terry Wise, director of worldwide partner ecosystem, AWS, “With Elemental Cloud and Elemental Server running on AWS, premium video providers can immediately meet the demand in their media workflow and take advantage of the AWS global infrastructure for secure content creation, storage and distribution.”
