iStreamPlanet Announces New RTMP-Based Live Streaming Video Services
“IP-based RTMP acquisition helps to reduce the cost and complexity of live video streaming, and allows for content acquisition from practically anywhere in the world,” said Lou Greco, executive vice president of global sales and service at iStreamPlanet. “In addition to traditional satellite and fiber acquisition, these new IP-based offerings provide a comprehensive infrastructure to enable broadcasters to deliver live-linear streaming channels in addition to their on-demand and live event content.”
To utilize the RTMP live-video workflow, content providers simply push an RTMP stream to an iStreamPlanet-certified content delivery network (CDN). iStreamPlanet pulls the stream from the CDN for media processing, which includes output to HLS or RTMP streams with multiple bit rates, and publishing to a certified CDN for playback on multiple screens. A certified CDN can also serve RTMP streams such as Adobe® HTTP Dynamic Streams targeting Flash® playback.
“There are a number of efficiencies to be gained in adopting an IP-based video workflow,” said Colin Dixon, senior partner at The Diffusion Group. “For larger broadcasters, IP-based live video workflows accelerate their TV Everywhere strategy. New levels of cost-effectiveness will open up connected, live video streaming to a new market of emerging broadcasters and distributors.”
The new services are available now. More information is available at www.istreamplanet.com
