That footage of oil flowing from the Earth at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico has a long trip to the Internet.

A VBrick encoder brings the oil spill footage from the Gulf to the web. Part of the journey comes through a VBrick video encoder, sitting on a ship at the surface.

To get from ship to shore, the video has to be compressed down to a skinny 56 Kbps. The Vbrick device does the compression and encoding to get it onto the ship's IP network, from where it heads into the skies and onto the Web.

There's more detail on the VBrick website. VBrick website

The encoder is just one component of VBrick's suite of powerful products for encoding and streaming video over IP.
