Content providers who put HD videos online often face the problem of video lag and pause and that kills the fun of watching a high quality video online. Since HD videos are big in size, many users with slow connection speeds find it difficult to watch them.

Raystream is a company that provides HD video compression solutions for such content providers. Instead of small, blurry-motion videos that pause to buffer, the video will be in crisp, full screen frames with the image clarity and audio perfection of full HD video.

Recently, the company announced updates to its custom-designed HD video compression solutions. These new updates consist of custom GPU encoding and transcoding as high as 90 frames per second (fps). Also, the advanced video settings help the user customize output files in various video and audio codecs, bitrates and format extensions.

The company has also announced strengthening its engineering and technical team and has appointed more video compression technology and algorithm experts, the company stated in a press release.

“We are excited about the powerful technology upgrades our new user interface can deliver,” said Raystream CEO, Brian Petersen. “We are raising the standard in offering top-performing, customizable HD video compression solutions worldwide. We continue to differentiate ourselves from the competition by raising the bar on our technical milestones. Our strategic technology development initiatives are focused on delivering a best-in-class solution to high growth markets that will benefit from our unique compression technology.”

Recently, TMC’s (News - Alert) Jyothi Shanbhag reported that the company signed up for a 30-day evaluation period with Cinefly, an television site that provides instructional, travel and destination, documentary, and conservation films from around the world that are dedicated to the sport of fly fishing. This new evaluation agreement will let Raystream make use of Cinefly’s Video-On-Demand (VOD) and live streaming videos that are provided with adaptive bitrate protocol.
