Internet Initiative Japan (IIJ) announced the immediate release of IIJ GIO Cloud Transcode Package, a cloud solution for easily changing the format of large video files.

Transcoding is the direct digital conversion of movie or audio data file formats to the necessary format for the target device, such as a PC or smartphone.

Transcoding for commercial use requires engineers with specialized expertise and high-performance servers that can handle high volumes of data. The demand for transcoding is increasing in the content distribution market due to the proliferation of a variety of devices.

This package answers that demand by providing IIJ’s years of experience in operating transcoding systems for broadcast stations and others, all in one package.


Conventional transcoding systems have been delivered as software, but this package provides the software and server in the cloud for a monthly fee. This will allow video distributors to drastically reduce their equipment costs associated with transcoding processes, as well as outsourcing fees.

IIJ plans to provide this package to Asahi Broadcasting Corporation for use in broadcasting the Special 95th Japan High School Baseball Championship starting this month.
