Hybrik

Optimize your content for every screen with integrated transcoding and quality control.

Today’s media workflows require creating dozens of different versions of every piece of content — different sizes, bit rates, languages, and formats targeting desktop and mobile devices, as well as cinema and TV. Hybrik is a fast, high-quality, cost-effective solution that lets you easily generate all the files you need, using world-class technologies like Dolby Vision® and Dolby Atmos®.

And because there is simply no time for human resources to review the multitude of files produced, automated quality control has become a critical component of enterprise media workflows. Hybrik provides media analysis and quality control to ascertain whether content coming into your workflows meets your standards and ensure that every file you deliver is perfect.

Hybrik

Our API makes Hybrik easy to integrate into your enterprise workflows.

RESTful API

Every element of the Hybrik workflow can be managed through a RESTful API. This includes transcoding, quality control, data transfers, etc. Even complex workflows with conditional execution and scripting can be designed and implemented using the Hybrik API. When defining transcodes through the API, users can reference pre-configured presets or explicitly define the complete encode pipeline. The API uses JSON structures for the definition of each element.
