You already know that a cloud-native media processing solution like Hybrik will eliminate up-front capital investments and ongoing infrastructure and maintenance costs for on-premise equipment and software. But most cloud media processing vendors make it tricky for you to budget, with complex pricing schemes that require a special calculator to figure out. Hybrik makes it easy for you to understand and control your costs, because rather than charging by GB or minutes, we simply charge a flat monthly fee to manage your transcoding environment. And because Hybrik works inside your cloud account, where you already store your content, there are no costs or risks associated with transferring your media to some other data center — and no mark-up for additional machine costs. In fact, Hybrik is typically 10X more cost effective than other alternatives. Plus, you can scale your Hybrik plan, at any time, to meet your needs as they grow or change.

Our API makes Hybrik easy to integrate into your enterprise workflows.
It’s easy to integrate our RESTful API. The Hybrik API lets you define every aspect of your ideal workflow: transcoding, quality control, conditional processing, data transfers, etc. When defining transcodes through the API, users can reference pre-configured presets or explicitly define the complete encode pipeline. The API uses JSON structures to define each element.
