Happy New Year!

Happy New Year2009 was a great year at Wired. The venerable MediaPress MPEG encoder retired after ten years as the world’s leading MPEG-2 encoder, and the Mason IP decoder/verifier has really come into its own. (In fact, we had some trouble meeting demand before the year-end.) (more…)

NAB 2008

This year both Apple and Avid, two very large multimedia companies, have decided to pull out of the NAB 2008 tradeshow in Las Vegas. They site the diminishing relevance of tradeshows as viable sales producers.

Because NAB 2008 will now be a very different environment for us and many other multimedia companies, we have decided to also not attend the tradeshow. We are sorry if you expected to meet up with our staff at the show, but we find we can more effectively perform personal demos and send out rental/test units for potential customers instead of standing around a booth at NAB. This is a much more targeted and personal approach, which makes our customers, and our potential customers, very happy.

If you have any questions about our products or wish to discuss demos, please contact us directly at And thanks for all your support of Wired products.

Closer and closer…

Mason transformerBoy it’s been a busy year so far! We are heading down the home stretch now with the MasonIP decoder and most of our time is now spent getting all the pieces together for the product launch. What amazes me is the amount of documentation that the MasonIP requires. Not that I’m saying you customers out there need so much help, but because MasonIP is bridging the gap between Video Decoding and IP Networks, we find that so much data is missing from one industry compared to the other.

Changes Are a Comin’…..

MarkJust like the Wired website, the professional video area is going through a massive change. It has just started and will continue to evolve for years to come. What am I talking about? I am talking about the change-over, or adoption, of network accessible video.

Everyone I have spoken to knows this is going to happen. Just like how the Internet changed the way people search and gather information, the network will change how everyone in the video broadcast and authoring space work : (more…)
