These milestones demonstrate the viability of the cloud-based encoding service model and highlight Encoding.com's focus on superior quality and delivery speeds.

Encoding.com, launched in September of 2008, as the first company to introduce cloud-based, video encoding as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution. Recognized as the pioneer and leader in this emerging growth sector, Encoding.com has quickly grown its business customer base to over 400 companies in the first year. Encoding.com also launched the second version of its platform, Encoding.com 2.0 in August 2009, which has significantly reduced encoding wait-time, increases video throughput per hour, and offers another industry first: performance-based service level guarantees. Marquee customers and partners recognized the quality and value in Encoding.com's studio-class, instantly scalable, guaranteed video encoding service and have entrusted their important video projects to Encoding.com. As a result, Encoding.com has encoded over 2 million videos for its customers in the past year including a recent peak of 100,000 videos encoded in just one weekend.
