Today is the last day that Telestream's FlipFactory transcoding software can be purchased and I did not want to let this milestone pass without some comment.
In 2000 the broadcast world was a totally different place. Broadcast servers had only baseband I/O, video on the web was in its infancy and certainly not a revenue earning activity, and a 'cloud' was something that spoiled picnics. But, at this time, Telestream saw where things were heading and the future was file. After successfully helping to change how media was delivered with their ClipMail product, Telestream moved focus to making transcoding an enterprise, server based activity that could be automated and was designed for volume and FlipFactory was born.
