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.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
