" Zencoder supports media output formats covering almost every device on the market. "

As adult webmasters and content producers race to wrap their heads around the rapidly evolving cloud computing scene, one killer app is bringing benefits that nearly any multimedia marketer can benefit from.

A next-gen solution to getting beautiful video clips, Zencoder (www.zencoder.com) boasts the ability to encode HD video streams at better than realtime speeds; delivering a time-efficient method of encoding nearly any format of audio or video within the cloud, using its software as a service (SaaS).

The company claims a wide range of customers that want access to unlimited video encoding power, without having to buy, manage or scale expensive hard- and software.

Zencoder supports media output formats covering almost every device on the market, including Apple HTTP Live Streaming (HLS), for delivering high quality video to the iPad, iPhone and other iOS-powered devices.

A well documented API, along with an API Request Builder, integration libraries and dedicated customer support, allow for fast and easy integration.

Zencoder offers unlimited scalability, backed by its cloud infrastructure that scales instantly upon demand; giving users the power of large encoding clusters without ever paying for idle server time.
