An automated ‘smooth streaming’ encoding and digital rights management (DRM) system for HD video-on-demand content.
Who is behind it? Inlet Technologies, developer of VoD workflow management tool Armada, and Twofour Digital,with its Media Freedom web broadcasting platform.
What does it do? The combination allows on-demand content providers to meet stringent rights management requirements with content encryption and authentication control for the web, mobile and set-top boxes.
How does it work? Smooth Streaming detects local bandwidth and CPU conditions and switches the bit rate of the media file that a player receives.
