What is it?

Well, it’s going to be a cool tool that “combines satellite imagery, maps and the power of Google Search to put the world’s geographic information at your fingertips.”

However, the download is delayed, so we can’t test it yet.

The preview certainly looks cool though. When its live, we’ll profile it.

    On-demand trans-coding is not a new biz model, the biggest problem here will be to ensure that the video encode quality is proper for the intended use/user in mind. This is not something that you can just point and click at. I have been doing video encoding since ’94 and yes the technology today is much better, still I see lots of crappy videos on the web and the main reason is how they are produced. For the average company this may work just fine, but I am not sure who they are going after. I would partner with he CDN’s and offer a white label offering as well as integrate this with 3rd party SaaS and software vendors. MySpace and Facebook could use this to standardise not to mention that the YouTube video trans-coding is not taking a bit too much time for those 5 min clips.

    Having managed the encoding platform of a growing user generated video site I know the time money and energy it takes to build let alone scale this from scratch. I think this really takes a huge burden off of video application developer. I would have integrated with their API in a second. Well done.

    This looks quite slick. We tried writing a one-off encoder workflow once, but it turned out pretty crufty, couldn’t handle two of the formats we ended up needing, and six months later nobody remembered how it worked.

    Cloud encoding is one of the best ideas out there. Like Jack, I struggle with my own encoding infrastructure…. where were these guys 2 years ago!

    with more and more companies going to Cloud solutions, it will be interesting to see what the future will bring.
    the encoding field is just a little niche in the Cloud area and already got a lot of competitors including heavyweights such as ON2.
    I am interested to see if the big publishers will join the ride and prefer the Cloud encoding, or continue to handle their own in-house encoding.
