-- QuickFire.TV achieves ridiculous benchmark in independent testing
SAN DIEGO, June 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- QuickFire.TV, a business unit of QuickFire™ Networks, today announced it has shattered existing benchmarks for video transcoding speed, without any quality degradation, as validated by independent testing.
"When we first started talking about transcoding video at 10x real-time speed without sacrificing video quality, everyone thought we were nuts," commented Craig Lee, General Manager of QuickFire.TV. "In fact, a lot of people are probably going to think the results in Jan [Ozer]'s report represent a typo," he quipped.
"Today's bottleneck in quickly delivering video content to a multi-screen audience is transcoding time," Craig continued. "This lag has not only become exasperating, it's rapidly getting worse. We didn't just want to shave a little bit off of total encoding time. With QuickFire, we reduce your transcoding time from minutes to seconds, ensuring that customer video content is available almost immediately. The difference between 'breaking news' and 'old news' requires that existing speed limits be redefined. With QuickFire, the wait is over."
QuickFire.TV invites skeptical customers to try the QuickFire.TV transcoding service using their own content, including the ability to evaluate the output and verify there is no quality degradation at 10X real-time transcoding speed. Video creators, publishers, and distributors are invited to sign up for private beta at www.QuickFire.TV.
The third-party benchmarking report is available at www.streaminglearningcenter.com.
