CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., Oct. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sovee, a global video distribution and translation technology company headquartered in Chattanooga, TN, has been named one of the "100 Companies that Matter Most in Online Video" by Streaming Media.
The list of industry influencers was published in the October/November issues of Streaming Media magazine and is posted online. The publication also features Sovee President Scott Gaskill in an executive "View from the Top" outlook on impactful industry trends.
"Sovee is honored to be recognized by experts in the video industry," Scott notes. "Our ability to significantly compress video with no compromise in quality is attractive to companies who need to store and stream video online."
Sovee's transcoding, autosensing and adaptive-bit rate sensing technology is best known for eliminating the "dreaded buffering wheel" that frustrates consumers trying to watch video online. It also ensures playback on virtually any device, whether mobile or desktop, Mac or PC.
"The technology automatically determines which device, browser and bandwidth a person is using to watch a video, then optimizes the playback perfectly for those conditions," says Dr. Steve Steele, President of Sovee's technology development lab, Firma8. "If you are watching a video on your phone, and walk between two tall buildings and your bandwidth drops, it literally adjusts the playback on the fly."
Sovee also offers video hosting and video translation through Closed Captioning, subtitles and/or human-like synthetic voice. The Sovee Smart Engine, which analyzes for context and "learns" preferences for translation, produces the high accuracy level required for video translation in the business world.
Sovee is a premier provider of video distribution and Smart Engine translation technology. Headquartered in Chattanooga, TN, Sovee has sales and service representatives in Australia, The Netherlands, Indonesia and in cities across the U.S.
