As reported last week, three new teams join WebFWD this month! Tristan Crane of Entropy Wave shared the news last Friday. This introduction by Tristan Crane describes the San Francisco-based company and what they do:
Hello everyone! We’re David Schleef and Tristan Crane, the founders of Entropy Wave – a company based around open video codecs.
A bit about us….
David founded Entropy Wave in 2009 to create products around open video. A long-time open source developer, David saw a need for products that incorporate open codec formats and give content producers an easy way to use open codec formats on the web. Tristan joined the company in 2010 to provide product marketing, project management, and general cat-herding.
Our products are a fairly diverse: we have a live multi-format video encoding platform that is featured in a line of hardware appliances. We’re working on moving this platform to a cloud-based solution for companies to utilize as a service.
Mozilla has experimented with some of our equipment for streaming Air Mozilla in WebM. This system, the E1000, encodes and streams in MPEG-TS, HTTP Live Streaming, Flash, Ogg, Matroska, and WebM. We have several open-source products related to this platform: streaming server software which can be integrated with the E1000 into a scalable streaming system as well as used independently. We’re really excited to bring our newest development project to the Mozilla community – a multi-camera live streaming capture application.
We’re extremely honored to be included in the portfolio of companies that are part of the WebFwd program. We are very much looking forward to working more with you, building community around our open source projects, and participating in the Mozilla and open web community.
