Extending Video Workflows with Joint Collaborations
The top 10 video sites in the United States use Adobe Flash technology, making it the number one format for viewing video on the Web*. By leveraging thePlatform’s video management system, which serves numerous media companies and five of the largest TV service providers in the North America, publishers utilizing Flash Access can take advantage of new integrated features that provide a robust and flexible solution for protecting premium content that supports a variety of business models, including video-on-demand, subscription, electronic sell-through and rental. Integrated with HTTP dynamic streaming, this solution also enables an optimized user experience by adapting delivery to the available bandwidth.
Smartphones and Tablets
For mobile publishing, the companies have collaborated to provide significant integration so users can have an easy-to-use experience on touch screen devices. Utilizing support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1, thePlatform’s solution detects when consumers are accessing video from mobile devices running Google’s Android 2.2 (Froyo) and reconfigures thePlatform’s video player.
