Microsoft supports VC-1 encoder SDK
At IBC2007, Microsoft highlighted broad industry support for the Microsoft VC-1 encoder software development kit (SDK), a commercial offering first announced at the NAB2007 in April.
In the broadband and mobile content distribution segments, Red Bee Media has chosen tools based on the Microsoft VC-1 encoder from Anystream to repurpose and streamline the delivery of high-quality, bandwidth-efficient video content for the BBC’s new iPlayer service.
Content and service providers also are relying on Microsoft VC-1 encoder technology to create HD content for HD optical disc titles, as well as broadband video on demand.
Among the first to develop products based on the Microsoft VC-1 Encoder SDK are Anystream, Envivio, Harmonic, Inlet Technologies, Memory-Tech, Tarari and ViewCast.
