Simian announced the release of the Simian Real Time Video Encoder (RTVE) – a new application that makes it simple to simultaneously encode and upload any size video file to the cloud. Available free to Simian users, the new app reduces the complexities involved with encoding and uploading video files to a single drag-and-drop operation. Even large files can be quickly uploaded to Simian. The app also ensures optimal playback.
According to Simian co-founder Brian Atton, “The Simian Real Time Video Encoder is the fastest way to upload video, and it requires no technical expertise or training. Users simply drag and drop a file into the bucket and the app does the rest.”
The Real Time Video Encoder relies on the user’s local computer for encoding, eliminating the need to upload uncompressed video to a web-based application. It simplifies the encoding process with pre-set profiles that ensure optimal video playback on all platforms. Users can also bypass the encoding where needed.
“Uploading broadcast quality video files can take hours,” Atton explained, “And dealing with complicated video codecs often leads to errors and frustration.”
