bitmovin Showcases High Performance Cloud Encoding and Efficient MPEG-DASH Players for Every Bowser at NAB 2014

Klagenfurt, Austria, March 21, 2014 --(PR.com)-- High Performance Cloud Encoding

bitmovin will be showing its bitcodin transcoding and streaming service with the highest performance in the market today, demonstrating the speed, quality and capabilities of massively scalable cloud-based transcoding for Live and On-Demand streaming – transcoding HD content in multiple MPEG-DASH representations, several times faster than anything else on the market.

The modular architecture of the bitcodin platform delivers the performance to efficiently deal with content-encoding performance issues of tomorrow created by the wide variety of target devices, the increased resolution of content up to 4k, the computational complexity of new codecs such as HEVC and the requirement of live streaming delivery.

The service is currently available on the Microsoft Azure public cloud infrastructure as well as bitmovin’s private-cloud platform and is being piloted by a number of content distributors and solutions providers in a closed beta program.

Highly Efficient Streaming Clients

bitmovin will also demo its adaptive streaming players that deliver MPEG DASH play out for every web browser, supporting HTML5 and Media Extensions and Adobe Flash as a fallback scenario for users that have web browsers that do not support the HTML5 extensions for adaptive streaming.

bitmovin’s players are based on the company’s bitdash client framework available for web, mobile and embedded client platforms, including native application for Android, Linux and Windows. bitdash delivers up to 100% higher effective bitrate throughput compared to existing solutions, in particular in challenging (mobile) network conditions. This results in a highly efficient, high-quality MPEG-DASH playback on a broad range of web, mobile and embedded platforms, and in improved Quality of Experience, or a more efficient usage of network bandwidth.

Better Together

Using bitcodin in combination with the bitdash clients allows for more advanced live streaming use cases including DVR capabilities such as time-shift & catchup functionalities based on Electronic Program Guide (EPG) information.

bitmovin’s Booth and Presentations at the NAB Conference

bitmovin will be present at booth SU10115 in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center offering detailed presentation of their products and the showcases. The bitmovin Team will also take part of the DASH Industry Forum networking event on April 8th at 6:00 pm in the Ballroom of the Renaissance Hotel.

For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
Smart Cities are here to stay, but for their promise to be delivered, the data they produce must not be put in new siloes. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mathias Herberts, Co-founder and CTO of Cityzen Data, discussed the best practices that will ensure a successful smart city journey.
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
