With Flash EOL Imminent, Joint Solution Gives New Life to Multicast Networks still using Adobe Flash or Windows Media Servers
LOS ANGELES, CA – February 28, 2019 – MediaPlatform, a leading enterprise webcasting and video content management platform for the Global 2000, and Ramp, the leading provider of enterprise video delivery solutions, today announced a joint webinar on an increasingly urgent topic: how enterprises can leverage their existing multicast networks for webcasting once the Flash protocol reaches its end of life in 2020.
Called “Gone in a Flash: Multicast in a Flash-free World,” the webinar features solutions experts from both companies already working as a seamless team to convert Flash- and Windows Media-based multicast customer environments to standards-based, plugin-less HTML5 live webcasting.
“MediaPlatform and Ramp offer a compelling solution that combines the industry’s most reliable and scalable webcasting platform with Ramp’s innovative HTML5 multicasting capabilities,” said Mike Newman, CEO of MediaPlatform. “Our joint approach gives presenters the premium quality global broadcasts they seek coupled with software-based HTML5 distribution that uses the Cisco multicast networks they’ve already bought and deployed,” Newman said.
“Companies are pleased to see how simple it is to solve the issue of Flash-less webcasting, and may do so without requiring network infrastructure upgrades,” said Tom Racca, President and CEO of Ramp. “To realize the benefits of HTML5 live webcasting, most customers experience a very simple and straightforward software upgrade from Adobe Flash server to a Ramp AltitudeCDN™ server.”
Experts Michele Thomas, Ramp Director North American Sales, Gil Mayrand, Ramp Technical Sales and Customer Success Engineer and Jim Weldy, MediaPlatform Enterprise Sales Director Southeast, will host the webinar, which will be delivered via MediaPlatform’s live webcasting platform.
The event takes place on March 6th 11:00 PST/2:00 EST. Viewers can register here https://bit.ly/2XvDBNS.
