In-House or In the Cloud?

As a supplier of encoding and transcoding solutions, we are listening closely to the debate about whether our customers should keep these solutions in-house or embrace enlisting a cloud-based service.

While benefits and trade-offs exist for each arguement, you can be certain that your team at GPL is keeping abreast of
