Sorenson Squeeze Server Integration

Ensemble Video now integrates with Sorenson Squeeze Server. Squeeze Server was developed with large scale content producers in mind, and is great for a multiple user environment that requires a standardized output. The integration is very similar to our integration with Harmonic ProMedia, but there are are couple significant differences, first Squeeze Server can be installed ion a virtual machine! Additionally, Squeeze Server support FLV transcodes! Here are some key Squeeze Server features:

  • Supported Formats: Squeeze Server  supports all the formats you need (and then some) including: MPEG-4, MOV, FLV, MPEG-2, WMV, AVI, WebM, Flash, MKV, AC3 and many more.
  • Server Specifications: Squeeze Server can be installed on a virtual machine.
  • Divide & Conquer: Now saturate multiple cores at once for more efficiency encoding.
  • Adaptive Bitrate (ABR): Supports all major formats — including MPEG DASH, Apple HTTP Live Streaming (HLS), Microsoft Smooth Streaming (H.264) and Adobe Flash Dynamic Streaming.
  • Administration Console: A completely redesigned admin console allows for a much smoother workflow.
  • Higher Quality: Squeeze Server presets consistently maintain quality across a variety of formats.
