Transact Transcoder v6 to deliver Flash based video services to Apple iPad.
RipCode Inc, a developer of transactional transcoding solutions, said today that its latest product, TransAct Transcoder V6, is capable of interception Adobe Flash based file of live video requests and converting them to a container, video codec and audio codec that can be accepted by the new Apple Inc (Nasdaq: AAPL) iPad tablet.
The company said that the capability means that TransAct can help media distributors oversome the lack of Flash support on the iPad. RipCode's V6 transcoding appliance is equipped with industry-leading transcoding flexibility (file-to-file, file-to-stream, stream-to-stream, stream-to-file and RipCode's On-Demand Transcoding), codec and container flexibility, concurrency, video processing functions and resolutions ranging from QVGA to 1080i/p. Working in conjunction with RipCode's Commander and Detector, content requests from an iPad are automatically detected and an intelligent content transcoding workflow is launched to re-encode a Flash file to one of the iPad-accepted formats, which is then delivered either via MP4 Progressive Download or Apple's MPEG-TS Adaptive Progressive Download.
No pricing details of the solution were disclosed.
