Why Arreya decided to outsource video encoding for its cloud-based digital signage system?
We are so thrilled to announce that Coconut teams up with Arreya. Arreya is the only digital communication service of it's kind. Arreya lives and runs in the cloud providing companies the power to create, edit, manage, push and broadcast content using only a browser. By taking advantage of today's technologies digital signage can now have advanced analytics, real time viewing, multi-touch functions, social media, HD video, live RSS feeds and widgets. Digital signage now expands beyond the traditional reach to any internet ready device. No software to download, no special hardware, and no additional fees to have the same content on multiple screens. Freely share the link to your signage with others, or embed your content in your website, increasing your overall reach. A digital signage service that offers the capabilities you want with the reliability you need.
We had the chance to interview Walter Moore, CTO at Arreya.
Walter, why did you decide to move your video encoding to the Cloud?
Arreya is a digital signage service that is HTML5 based and runs entirely in the cloud. Being cloud based, and supporting modern programming languages, Coconut's cloud encoding solution was a natural fit for our application.
Why did you choose Coconut?
Coconut has a straightforward API and tools, good documentation, and many supporting libraries.
How fast and handy was your integration with Coconut?
Using the Node.js library and the web based tools we were able to integrate Coconut and filepicker.io together in Arreya, allowing users to record, upload, and display video from almost any device. Using Coconut we are able to confidently encode their content to the best formats possible for playback on almost any device.
Coconut has allowed us integrate video encoding with our cloud based digital signage platform quicker and easier than we previously thought was possible.
