Vidiator was a fully owned subsidiary of Hutchison Whampoa, founded by Connie Wong in 2002 to provide 3G video products to the Hutchison 3 group. The company's last president and CEO was Tae Sung Park who joined in 2009.

Vidiator's streaming and encoding platforms are media player agnostic and support the most requested video and audio codecs. Vidiator has also pioneered the live streaming of TV, music, live concerts, horse racing, awards ceremonies and major sporting events.[1]

In 2009 Vidator Patented Dynamic Bitrate Adaptation (DBA) which dynamically adjusts the bitrate according to the available bandwidth conditions to enhance and maintain streaming quality and consistency.[2]

Vidiator had offices in Hong Kong (headquarters) and London.

Products[edit]

Xenon[edit]

The Xenon platform enables streaming to the vast majority of mobile and connected devices in the market and requires users to encode only once to provide multiple outputs.

Strim[edit]

In October 2012, Vidiator released its latest product, a white-label fully hosted video and audio streaming solution called Strim. Strim is available as a native application for Android with iPhone, iPad and desktop applications in development. The service is also available via a WAP portal. Subscribers can access a library of live and on-demand video and audio content, including Korean soap operas and films.
