With an increasing number of users being on the move and in need of just-in-time knowledge, the opportunities for innovative content delivery and decision support are greater than ever.

Video has quickly become the main form of online content for media, training, and communication. REDspace invented Ingest, a next generation storage, encoding, and streaming platform for delivering video content across all existing and emerging user platforms. Unique to Ingest, all information is secure at-rest and in transport. We leverage AES-128 encryption and TLS authentication to guarantee content is 100% secure at all times. Our innovative analytics system monitors delivery, ensuring that content reaches its intended audience at the best fidelity your bandwidth supports, no matter where you may be. Ingest is five times faster to first frame than competitive platforms, and available in scalable environments domestic to Canada, United States, or other countries. Ingest can be integrated into enterprise learning tools, content management systems, mission playback infrastructures, and more.
