This week, Elemental is attending and exhibiting at the College Sports Video Summit (CSVS) in Atlanta, Georgia. Sponsored by the Sports Video Group, CSVS is all about building the business of college sports video and it's where schools and universities learn how to increase the value of their college sports content. As SVG notes, more college sports content is being produced and distributed than ever before – and most schools have only just scratched the surface.

It was not so long ago that a college sports fan settled for watching a national game-of-the-week on television or tuned in to listen to a favorite team play on local radio. But with the proliferation of “pads, pods and tabs”, typical supporters don’t need to settle for these limited options any longer. College fans increasingly expect and demand expanded coverage of their school’s sporting events online and on mobile devices. Delivering video, both live and on-demand, is now a priority in the world of college sports and prominent networks and programmers turn to Elemental to make this happen in a high-quality and cost-effective manner.

As Elemental continues its mission to provide video to any screen, any time, all at once, we also strive to help college sports networks and universities deliver video in ways never before possible. If you are attending CSVS this week (June 7-8), we look forward to meeting you at the show and demonstrating how Elemental's video processing solutions can enable your streaming video application. To learn more about Elemental’s solutions for college sports video, read the application brief here.

I’m going to just come right out and say it…

We won…twice!

Thanks to the tireless work of all our employees, Elemental brought home two awards from the Oregon TechAwards ceremony last night.

The first honor Elemental received was the Rising Star Company of the Year award, which was decided by a selection committee and presented during the show. The second award went to Elemental Live for Cool Product of the Year. After the three finalists presented their cool products back to back in two-minute pitches, the audience selected the winner by text vote.

Elemental was in good company with FLIR and InFocus in the running for the Cool Product of the Year award and Jama and Janrain vying for the Rising Star Company of the Year award.

Elemental’s groundbreaking technology is used worldwide by major cable operators, content programmers and broadcasters. It’s exciting to see Elemental’s growth as a company and the strides our technology has made over the past year. It is truly an honor to be recognized by TechAmerica Oregon for these achievements.

The Oregon TechAwards, sponsored by TechAmerica, was held on May 19, 2011 at the Portland Art Museum. A total of seven awards were given to companies and individuals who have made significant strides in the region’s technology community over the course of the year.

Elemental is all set for the fourteenth annual Streaming Media East conference and exhibition, taking place May 10-11 at the Hilton New York. If you plan to attend the show, please stop by to see why the world’s largest media companies entrust Elemental with the delivery of their content to customers online and on-the-go.

We’re particularly eager to hear HBO co-president Eric Kessler's keynote on Tuesday morning as he discusses his company’s foray into the mobile video space with its newly-launched Go Mobile service

At Streaming Media East, Elemental will demonstrate its Elemental Server and Live products in booth 403, featuring: 

  • Four-screen experience with Elemental Server: a file-based video processing system that provides fast, high-quality, and highly-efficient video transcoding for on-demand assets. This demonstration will feature simultaneous outputs from a single system generating adaptive bit rate streams for Adobe Flash and Apple HLS.
  • Real-time video processing with Elemental Live: a Streaming Media 2011 Editors’ Pick for live streaming to new media platforms. We'll present a multi-screen experience with multiple HD and SD outputs streaming to Web-based and HDTV platforms as well as to mobile devices, including the iPad and iPhone, using a single system.
  • High-availability and simplified management with Elemental Conductor: a unified management system that allows for control and tiered management of multiple network elements in a full-redundancy configuration.
