I’ve always been a big fan of ScottGu and the work his team has done around Silverlight. Now Juniper has come-up with a solution that will allow developers to take adaptive streaming to the next level.
The ability to deliver content to multiple screens is rapidly becoming a requirement for broadband and television service providers such as cable and IPTV operators, as well as content providers themselves. However, delivering content to multiple devices over the Internet requires a different approach than that of traditional TV and video on demand (VOD). Variables in device capabilities and connection quality mean that multiscreen content delivery requires adaptive bit-rate streaming—the ability of the video to adjust in response to changing conditions. This is what Media Flow brings to the table.
Media Flow Publisher provides HTTP adaptive stream content segmentation, packaging, and metadata support for industry leading formats, including Apple HTTP Adaptive Streaming, Microsoft Smooth Streaming (Silverlight), and Adobe HTTP Dynamic Streaming (Flash). Media Flow Publisher can ingest multiple H.264 video streams or files (live or on demand) and publish the content for adaptive stream delivery, with the associated metadata, in any of these formats. Additionally, Media Flow Publisher can convert content between Microsoft, Adobe, and Apple adaptive stream formats if you like.
