iStreamPlanet Announces New RTMP-Based Live Streaming Video Services
LAS VEGAS, NV, Jan 03, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
iStreamPlanet, a leading provider of live and on-demand streaming
video solutions, announced today that the company is adding new
RTMP-based global acquisition, ingest, and publishing capabilities to
its portfolio of live streaming video services. These new
capabilities enable broadcasters of all sizes to target a rapidly
growing audience tuning in to live content on IP-connected devices.
The new services include the ability to acquire a live video source
via single-bit-rate RTMP and output multiple-bit-rate RTMP streams,
along with the ability to package RTMP streams in Apple(R) HTTP Live
Streaming (HLS) for targeting iOS devices.
"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(R) HTTP Dynamic Streams targeting Flash(R) 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
