We are happy to share a great project we have just recently finished together with our german partner netorium AG:

We have built a mobile ingest platform for a german public broadcaster using our JOBS workflow orchestration platform and FLICS elastic transcoding solution.

Now, journalists can shoot content on their mobile devices, upload them from anywhere in the world using our technology. The SaaS offering will process the files and check them in into the customers on-premise production system.

Hiscale Joins SRT Alliance With Its Elastic Transcoder FLICS

Hiscale, specialists in high-performance hybrid video transcoding solutions, announced they joined the SRT Alliance, the open-source initiative dedicated to overcoming the challenges of low-latency video streaming.

“By implementing the SRT protocol into FLICS, our hyper-scalable Elastic Transcoding Cluster, we can securely receive or transport streams over unreliable networks to process them on-premise, in the cloud or in a hybrid environment,“ said Tilo Skomudek, CEO at Hiscale. “Especially in cloud-centric workflows, using the FLICS transcoding platform, we see it is crucial to have a reliable and secure transport protocol to handle network jitter. This is why we support the SRT Alliance and have chosen to implement SRT in our product.”
