About Us

Home / About Us

Three key trends motivate our existence: (1) media production and consumption at an unprecedented scale, (2) the Industry shift from linear to file-based workflows, and (3) commodity server hardware catching up with media processing complexity (Moore’s law). Taken together, these trends represent a valuable business opportunity to provide Enterprises, which deal with media on a day-to-day basis, with solutions that have significantly lower CAPEX and OPEX, while not compromising on performance.

At Zipreel, we are building reliable, fast, and scalable software products to compress and classify media.

Partnership

Zipreel partners with igolgi for their veteran domain experience and deep technological expertise in media processing. We also leverage their best-of-breed MPEG2, H.264 and H.265 codec implementations.

Zipreel is grateful to RU for their logistical support in our exploratory phase during the NSF I-Corps program. Since then, they have also proved to be an excellent source for technical collaboration. Go Knights!
