Capella is now shipping Cambria Stream Encoder on Akamai’s Connected Cloud. Cambria Stream Encoder is a highly scalable cloud encoder designed for live streaming workflows. It can ingest a wide range of live inputs, such as SRT and Zixi, and it handles both encoding and packaging into multiple adaptive streaming formats, such as HLS, MPEG-Dash, and CMAF. 

 

As an Akamai Qualified Compute Partner, Capella has built Cambria Stream to be fully compatible with Akamai Connected Cloud, the world’s most distributed platform for cloud computing, security, and content delivery. Users can deploy and scale multiple Cambria Stream nodes under the control of Cambria Stream Manager. 

 

“Online video providers are making it clear that they want choice in workflow solutions,” said Dan Lawrence, Vice President of Cloud Computing at Akamai. “Capella is helping to satisfy industry demands by running its Cambria Stream Encoder on Akamai, giving users access to cloud-based encoding capabilities that can scale across the massively distributed Akamai Connected Cloud.”

 

A Cost-Effective Cloud Solution

Akamai Connected Cloud offers pricing in which egress costs are significantly lower than most cloud providers. By utilizing Cambria Stream’s perpetual license model with Akamai, users can get a cost-effective cloud encoding solution with maximum flexibility. 

 

“We are very excited to partner with Akamai.  Many of our customers are using Akamai CDN to deliver their media to their audience, so it makes sense for them to also encode their media on Akamai platform for a simpler and more cost effective workflow”  says Ikuyo Yamada, CEO of Capella Systems.
