Video Delivery

MediaPlatform’s success in live webcasting relies on our experience supporting virtually every variant that is the reality of today’s corporate WAN. Ours is a network-agnostic approach that optimizes what you have, from edge caching devices to peering, multicast and CDN providers.

eCDN

You can use our Edge eCDN software as your video delivery layer for efficient delivery of live and on-demand video. Edge nodes provide intelligent video caching, content prepositioning, and delivery of multiple formats and ABR to provide optimal video quality with minimal network impact. All Edge nodes can be centrally managed via our video portal, and work with our Unified Video Player for fully redundant failover scenarios that ensure all users receive the best possible stream.

Distribution Overlay

MediaPlatform offers Smartpath, a software distribution overlay for live video streaming that abstracts underlying network technologies. This unique distribution layer uses a rules-based engine that defines what streaming format, bit-rate, and transport protocol will be used to optimize video delivery to each network site so that existing infrastructure and network configurations can be leveraged whenever possible, while also defining how failover and redundancy is to be managed.

Network Agnostic Peering

MediaPlatform's network-agnostic live and on-demand streaming approach allows you to use multicast, unicast and peering solutions from Hive, Kollective and Ramp as part of your MediaPlatform enterprise video solution. MediaPlatform recognizes the video players from these providers and routes the stream to their respective clouds and includes them in failover and redundancy rules as one of the distribution profiles within SmartPath. Live webcast analytics for buffering, load time, failover and success rates are also collected for peering viewers.

Network Agnostic WAN Op

MediaPlatform's embrace of open HTTP video streaming standards like HDS and HLS also allows you to leverage your existing investments in WAN optimization and HTTP caching appliances for live split streaming and caching on-demand video. Your Blue Coat, Cisco, Exinda, Riverbed and Silverpeak investments can become an integral component of your MediaPlatform enterprise video delivery fabric.
