My Video Interview with MacVideo -- London Calling

A few months back, several of us from my office attended the Streaming Media Europe conference in London -- where Sorenson Media won the "Readers' Choice" award for best video transcoding solution. On that trip, I visited with one of the leading UK-based tech publications -- MacVideo. Here is the link to my video interview with Rick Young, Editor of MacVideo that is titled "Encoding with Sorenson Media."

If you are interested in hearing more about the history of our company -- including how and why we got started in the first place back in 1995 -- then check it out. I also give a high level overview of our overall transcoding solutions.

Cloud Transcoding Webinar Nearly Oversubscribed -- Another Data Point Reflecting Interest in the Cloud Right Now

I recently announced that this Thursday, January 20th at 11 am PT, Sorenson Media and RightScale will jointly host a free webinar titled "Video Encoding in the Cloud: A Key Strategy for 2011." Interest in this webinar -- and in the overall Cloud-based video transcoding opportunity -- is unprecedented. At this point, the webinar is already nearly oversubscribed ("sold out") and we apologize in advance if you are unable to register. (Here is the link to the registration page if you would like to still try to sign up now.)

Real business drivers are afoot as we enter 2011 that underscore the power of enterprise-grade Cloud-based video transcoding (here is a link to my recent guest post in Streaming Media that describes these business drivers). And, these business drivers are not lost on enterprise decision-makers. Our upcoming nearly oversubscribed webinar is the latest data point that underscores that businesses are taking a serious look at Cloud-based solutions right now ... in real time. We will have some major data points in this regard to reveal publicly in the weeks ahead.
