Submission + - Cloud slashes cost of video encoding at PBS, Zenco

An anonymous reader writes: The Cloud is changing the economics of video transcoding and encoding — for broadcasters and webmasters, for TV and the iPad. And all the formats inbetween. With a host of new devices, many with their ‘own’ video formats, rapidly making their way to consumers to supporting streaming video, libraries of video content, and more. Zencoder changes the game, significantly less cost and far more performance.

PBS moved to Zencoder and details are below. New benchmarking from independent CloudHarmony are below and shows Zencoder’s cloud-based video transcoding service leads the industry in performance across every file type and use case, including video in standard-definition (SD) and high definition (HD). Zencoder’s service is up to 10x performance advantage.
