Combine video technologies for 100% reach
It is a risk to lock yourself into a specific technology or protocol for video delivery. Todays hot technology can be outdated next year. No single video streaming technology offers 100% reach.

HTTP Adaptive Bit Rate Streaming
HTTP streaming comes in many flavors. We’ve supported Icecast HTTP streaming for many years. The latest trend is HTTP adaptive bit rate streaming, where streams are chopped up in small fragments called chunks. We support both Apple’s HLS streaming to all HLS compliant devices and Microsoft Smooth Streaming as well so you can start offering enhanced QoE (Quality of Experience) services in HD to your end users.
