AMSTERDAM — Seeking to address the growing demand of video producers to create files in multiple streams, for numerous digital devices, Akamai has launched a cloud-based transcoding service called Sola Vision.

In addition to transcoding files, the service provides stream packaging and security. Most of these solutions are managed by on-site by content providers, according to Stuart Cleary, Akamai's Director of Product for EMEA, in this interview with Beet.TV done at the IBC show last week.

Based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Akamai is global cloud platform provider.
