Digital Rapids Takes Live Streaming Higher at NAB with HD, Enhanced Management, Portability and More
Digital Rapids also announced plans to incorporate support for Microsoft's advanced new Smooth Streaming technology into future versions of the company's live streaming and on-demand content encoding solutions. Smooth Streaming enables adaptive streaming of live and on-demand media, dynamically detecting the best quality a viewer can receive based on their current bandwidth and local computer conditions. Leveraging the Web's massive existing HTTP infrastructure, Smooth Streaming switches seamlessly between multiple versions of the stream to deliver a consistent, high-quality viewing experience -- up to true 1080p HD -- even under changing connectivity conditions.
The complete line of Digital Rapids solutions is being showcased in booth number SL6213 at the 2009 NAB Show, April 20-23 in Las Vegas. For more information, please visit www.digital-rapids.com.
