|May 19, 2010 – Los Angeles, CA – Wildform, Inc. today announced the release of Flix WebM, a new video encoding product that encodes video into the new WebM video format. The release coincides with Google's announcement of the WebM project at Google I/O today. WebM uses the VP8 codec, originally developed by On2 Technologies, which Google recently acquired.
WebM is an open web media project that utilizes VP8, a high performance video codec optimized for the web. WebM offers many benefits for developers, publishers and end users including the fact that: it is royalty free, it's designed to provide high-quality video across resolutions, bitrates and multiple systems, it's efficient (which reduces power consumption), and it's optimized for Internet and network video delivery.
"We released the first version of Flix in 2000," noted Wildform CEO, Jonathan Blank, "and now we've released the latest version of Flix with an exciting new codec that is expanding the web media experience for everyone."
Wildform invites everyone to download a free copy of Wildform Flix WebM at wildform.com/flix.
