Dolby's (DLB) Transcode API to Speed Up Workflow Creation

·4 min read

Dolby Laboratories, Inc. DLB recently announced that its Dolby.io Transcode API has completed the beta stage and is now available for all users. With this announcement, developers and businesses now have access to a media conversion platform that will help accelerate the creation of superior quality workflows.

What Does Transcode API Offer?

The Dolby.io Transcode API is an API-driven media conversion platform for seamlessly streaming and delivering content over the web, making it easy to quickly create high-quality, file-based video workflows for any screen. The Transcode API provides powerful conversion tools wherein the outputs are already optimized for web delivery so that one does not have to use any advanced configuration to deliver media to any screen.

The Transcode API can be leveraged by anyone from a developer who needs to manage massive volumes of user-generated content to a business with recorded video intended to be used by huge audiences. The Transcode API will help businesses and developers add video to their apps quickly without needing a media expert. With the Transcode API, Dolby offers the most frequently used video codecs like AVC, HEVC, VP8 and VP9.

The Dolby.io Transcode API is the latest flexible component in a suite of APIs, which makes the content look and sound its best. With robust multi-cloud storage integration for Amazon S3, Microsoft Azur, and Google Storage, one can take source videos from one provider as input and write them cross-cloud to any other provider. Incorporating enhanced features like video concatenation and trimming, the Transcode API will be a valuable inclusion in any media workflow, giving developers a powerful toolset to understand, improve and distribute their content.

The Transcode API has simple and transparent pricing with no maintenance or hidden charges.

San Francisco, CA-based Dolby specializes in audio noise reduction and audio encoding/compression. The company offers state-of-the-art audio, imaging, and voice technologies that revolutionize entertainment and communications at theaters, home, work and mobile devices.

Dolby is well poised to benefit from the higher adoption of Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos technology, thanks to the rising demand for premium-viewing experiences. Dolby Cinema technology is considered a major profit churner for the company. Its growth strategy stands on three pillars — advancing the science of sight and sound, providing creative solutions, and delivering superior experiences. Diligent capital deployment strategies and robust financials ensure the company’s long-term growth.

Shares of DLB have lost 23% compared with the industry’s fall of 10.9% in the past year.
