Streaming media technology has changed dramatically in the last 10 years; the diminishing role of Flash, the challenge of mobile devices, the growth of HTTP Live Streaming (HLS), and the demand for cost-effective security for streaming video and audio.
HLS streaming protocol is an HTTP protocol that enables publishers to deliver the highest quality video is served to every device. It provides an optimal viewing experience regardless of device, screen size, or available bandwidth. It has replaced Flash audio and video in many sites and is the fastest growing technology among streaming media Web sites.
MediaGration is your one-stop resource for HLS-related streaming. Our MMCart software integrates HLS media servers with HLS-compatible players and billing. Our Product Creator transcodes any uploaded media file into HLS-compliant m3u8 playlists - no matter what format the file is. It is capable of applying ABR (Adaptive Bitrate) technology to video and audio -- so that multiple renditions are created to service different types of devices. Adaptive bitrate video delivery is a combination of server and client software that detects a client’s bandwidth capacity and adjusts the quality of the video stream between multiple bitrates and/or resolutions.
The MMCart software also allows publishers to enable ABR HLS, HLS-aliasing, HLSe encryption, and advanced features such as captions, slow motion and more. MMCart can be integrated with Wowza Media Server, WMS Panel, Evostream Media Server, JW Player, Bit Movin' Player, Video JS, and most CDNs, and transcoding services.
