Bayside, CA (July 13, 2015)—StreamGuys is launching Audio Transcoding, a new transcoding platform for broadcasters that specifically focuses on proper audio output across multiple devices.
“With the wide range of devices available to consumers today, broadcasters deserve an audio transcoding solution that specializes in keeping pace with the ever-evolving world of audio formats and codecs,” said Eduardo Martinez, director of technology, StreamGuys. “Many do multi-bitrate video transcoding, but few if any focus solely on audio and their many transport mechanisms. Our new Audio Transcoding platforms brings together a complete toolset to address the right combination of formats and codecs for today’s TV and radio broadcaster.”
The new Audio Transcoding service was born out of a need to implement better compatibility with iTunes Radio for many StreamGuys customers. In addition to converting from one audio codec to another, the service can ingest live video feeds and extract the audio to provide an audio-only rendition of the output.
The platform additionally offers Transrating, which provides multiple bit-rates of single input stream, and Transmuxing, which converts from one transport container to another, enabling native playback of a single protocol across multiple consumer platforms.
