Why Big Digital selects Coconut to outsource video encoding for its digital video project?


February 05, 2020 Customers

We are so excited to announce that Coconut teams up with Big Digital. Big Digital creates game-changing media & experiential technologies. With thousands of successful pop-up activations, temporary & permanent media installations over 20 years of operation, they are a proven innovations partner. For this project, they needed to create 3 custom video kiosks that captured user generated videos in select retail environments. The kiosks uploaded the videos to their cloud servers. They needed a cost effective and fast way to crunch these videos down to a smaller video file that could be attached to a follow-up email for the user.

We had the chance to interview Dmitri Melamed, CTO at Big Digital.

Dmitri, why did you decide to move your video encoding to the Cloud for Big Digital?

Given the fact that our video was already delivered to a could storage, encoding in the cloud made a lot of sense.

Why did you choose Coconut?

We liked the ease of use of the API and the the pricing was appealing to us as well.

How fast and handy was your integration with Coconut?

We used FireBase as the storage with Coconut and it was a seamless integration.
