Anystream is an Internet software company that specializes in streaming media encoding technology.
The company designs scalable software that automated the laborious process of encoding and transcoding media for demanding broadcast and production environments. Anystream’s Agility software has become a standard for streaming media encoding and broadcast transcoding for such media companies as BBC, Red Bee Media, BskyB, CNet, CNN, AOL, ESPN, Fox News, Foxsports.com, NFL Films, weather.com and others.
In its Apreso product line, Anystream enables educators and trainers to create rich media content for the Web. Institutions of higher education use Apreso Classroom to automatically capture and synchronize the classroom experience – the professor’s voice and projected visuals – and post an interactive, indexed Web-based version of the lecture to university websites or course management systems. This software is already in use by several universities, including Temple University, Medical College of Georgia, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and MIT.
Anystream is best known for their line of Agility and Velocity products, which are enterprise class transcoding and media management platforms.
Agility can input files used by most common editors, including Avid, Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, and Quantel, and formats common to broadcast servers such as SeaChange, Leitch, Omneon, GrassValley, Sony, and Quantel, including GXF, MPEG-2, eQ, sQ MXF, IMX, SAF, and VSR2000.
