STOCKHOLM - June 23 – Popwire releases its new version of Compression Engine, a UNIX-based encoder for users with high demand of speed, uptime and reliability. Compression Engine 1.3 delivers what Broadcasting companies, Media houses and Telecom Operators all look for – a high quality product that fully automates the workflow from content ingestion trough to pre-processing, encoding and transcoding, saving considerable amount of time and money.

For large-scale operations, a stand-alone desktop encoding system is simply not powerful enough. Popwire’s Compression Engine is a high performance encoder for professionals who deal with large amounts of content. It is an unrivaled solution when content needs to be distributed in multiple formats as well as transcoding between intermediate formats. The Popwire Compression Engine drastically improves both the production process and performance when encoding high quality content. Popwire Compression Engine runs on a Sun Solaris server and Apple Xserve and is optimized for speed and quality. The system is fully scalable and easy to upgrade.

Popwire’s business concept is to create a high quality digital production environment where rich media efficiently can be encoded in a single workflow for a variety of distribution networks; Broadband/IP, Wireless, TV Broadcasting or for efficient digital archiving. Popwire specializes in encoding solutions for customers with a need for large amounts of audio/video volumes to be converted from one media format to another.
