Streaming Media Magazine has selected Ipera Technology in their Top 100 List of companies that matter the most in streaming media industry.

October 14, 2011. San Mateo, CA Ipera Technology, the leading provider of multi-format HD/SD video transcoder – Pixel Xtream® 3, has been named as one of the top 100 most important and influential players in the streaming media industry.

The goal of the Streaming Media 100 list was to identify the companies that are the most important, most innovative, have had the most impact on the streaming media space in the recent past and are likely to continue to do so in the future. From an initial list of about 200 companies nominated by Streaming Media magazine’s staff and contributing editors, the judges discussed and debated the relative merits of each before arriving at the final list.

“The companies in the Streaming Media 100 represent many different pieces of the online video ecosystem,” said Streaming Media editor Eric Schumacher-Rasmussen, “but they all have one thing in common — the world of online video today would be markedly different without any of them. Each one, in its own way, has made the online video industry what it is today and is pushing it towards the future.”

“We’re honored to be selected by these respected industry experts as one of the most important companies in the rapidly growing streaming media space,” said Ian Xie, CEO of Ipera. “Our unique approach to innovate new video enhancement and transcoding algorithms has produced Pixel Xtream 3, the industry’s fastest and highest visual quality HD/SD multi-format transcoders. We are committed to maintaining our leadership in speed, quality, and cost effectiveness to provide our customers with the best transcoder solutions.

Dramatically expanded on format support, Pixel Xtream 3 was designed from the ground up with proprietary, patented video quality enhancement and bit-rate optimization technologies, and superior pipelined architecture to reach new level on quality and speed. Video quality enhancement is based on Ipera’s patented Pixel Magic®video enhancement core technology that removes noises, distortions, and artifacts. It also prevents new distortions from being introduced during the encoding process, resulting in higher quality video and lower bit rates. Video quality is also boosted at all bit rates with sharper contrast, improved brightness, more vibrant colors, sharper edges, and details.
