Technology keeps progressing and making life easier for people. One aspect of that is TRANSCODING.
Transcoding is the process of converting an audio or video file from its enclosed digital format to a different also digital format that better suits and caters to the needs of the audience.
The significance of Transcoding is something we understand here at Wink and we engage the application to cater well to the needs of the customers.
At Wink, we share traffic cameras, drones, IP camera captures to the web, and mobile devices in the form of static images preview and videos which bitrates have been reduced with an unaltered quality view by adaptive streaming. We capture files that can be of large quantity and convert it into a file of a different format in a lower quantity without any alteration in Quality.
The usefulness of this includes but is not limited to;
For people in a community, city, or state, Wink’s Transcoding of Traffic camera videos can prove to be very helpful as looking at the videos can help them figure out in minutes the best route to their destination. It can also help the consumers to avoid traffic or roads that have a bunch of snow on them to avoid car tires slipping. It is more reliable than only a GPS system as “seeing, they say, believes”.
It can also be used by the Hospital community for the ambulance service to get faster to the needed patient and reduce death rates.
The importance of audio or video evidence for the law cannot be overemphasized. Whether in Police pursuit or in the need to check the license plates of a vehicle, videos can be gotten from Drones or Traffic cameras. This can positively help in pursuit as the view from the top is likely to help officers determine the area of the suspects and nab criminals.
With this same Traffic camera sharing and Transcoding, the routes can be cut off, if in a serious case. After all, a safer society, right?
