Anystream's founding vision
Agility software transforms media content for use over Internet technologies


Anystream first targeted the world's largest content producers, designing ultra-reliable, scalable software that automated the laborious process of encoding and transcoding media for demanding broadcast and production environments. Anystream's Agility software has become the trusted standard for streaming media encoding and broadcast transcoding for such media giants as BskyB, CNet, CNN, AOL, ESPN, Fox News, FoxSports.com, NFL Films, weather.com and hundreds more. Anystream was recently recognized as the industry's largest software-based encoder by market research firm Frost & Sullivan.
