Streaming media technology company Anystream has released a scaled-down version of its Agility Workgroup encoder. Aimed at production houses, Agility Workgroup SE includes all of the encoding ability of the full product but can only work with digital files. The full encoder also facilities for live or taped-based input.
The encoder works it end-to-end with digital media: acquiring content from files, applying pre-processing profiles to optimize media for encoding, encoding to the main streaming formats and uploading to any IP-accessible server. This can all be done automatically without the need for user interaction.
A demo of the software is available from the Anystream Web site. The company also offers an upgrade path to the full version of Agility Workgroup.
