Company Achieves New Innovation, Performance and Live Audience Size Benchmarks as It Fully Transitions To Broadcaster from Legacy Webcaster Offering
LOS ANGELES, CA – February 17, 2021 – MediaPlatform Broadcaster use has scaled nearly 400% since November with mass-audience customer webcasts surpassing company milestones for performance and reliability.
The culmination of a multi-year development effort by MediaPlatform’s industry-recognized engineering team, Broadcaster is a cloud-native platform that scales elastically and dynamically to meet the demanding content creation, viewer authentication, security, transcoding video delivery and video management requirements of MediaPlatform’s Global 2000 clients. Broadcaster replaces the company’s Webcaster offering, which was retired in advance of Flash browser deprecation in January.
Among other notable accomplishments, MediaPlatform reports the following milestones for Broadcaster:
- 100% of legacy customers successfully transitioned to the new platform as well as all new customers in 2020;
- Successful, secure live webcasts to employee audiences of 30,000+;
- Accelerated feature release frequency tracking at an annualized rate approaching 40 major releases;
- Expanded video ingest from all major collaboration platforms including Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Webex and most recently, Google Meet;
- Expanded video delivery integrations across all major delivery technologies including multicast, peering, edge devices, CDNs and most recently, WebRTC peering.
“It is gratifying to see Broadcaster perform so well under the kind of pressure that resulted from the combination of Covid and the simultaneous deprecation of Flash,” said Mike Newman, CEO of MediaPlatform. “Our customers’ video use, and sheer number of connections, increased massively as employees migrated from concentrated office spaces to hybrid work arrangements.
“Our modernization investment was well-timed since Broadcaster provides the scale and resource flexibility our Global 2000 customers now need to stay connected with a more mobile and disparate workforce,” he said.
