Content Delivery Services:
As mentioned above, Streaming Media Hosting specializes in Flash video streaming and professional services. If you want to integrate flash media players into your website, Streaming Media Hosting can help you through all the steps in the process, from encoding to content delivery. With features such as load balancing to manage high-traffic situations, optional password protection, closed-caption functions, and branding customization, Flash Player continues to be a versatile and popular streaming platform. But, if you want to stream video to Mac users, you'll need to take advantage of Windows Media or Quicktime Player, also supported by Streaming Media Hosting.
As Streaming Media Hosting explains on its website, in order for your media to be supported by the services it offers, you'll need to know certain things about your audience before you begin using Streaming Media. This includes whether your audience will be using Windows of Apple operating systems and what type of internet connections they'll be using. Professionals from Streaming Media can help you with all of these considerations, as the company offers an encoding service to prepare media for streaming. The downside to this is that if you want to reach all viewers regardless of operating system, you'll need to embed several different media players into your website.
Livestreaming And Datacenter Colocation:
In addition to the Flash, Windows and Quicktime Media Players Streaming Media offers, they also offer services such as Live Event Streaming and Datacenter Colocation. Live Event Streaming is broadcasting an event live as it happens over the internet. Successfully livestreaming an event not only requires a smart technical set-up for recording, but also a CDN that can handle the internet traffic. Streaming Media assists with all steps in the process, including setting up the equipment, choosing an encoder and player, and standing-by during the big day of the event.
Datacenter Colocation means that you can rent out server space in Streaming Media Hosting's data center in Anaheim, California. By having a server for your company right next to the Streaming Media servers, you'll be able to harness the power of their top-of-the-line data center for faster content delivery.
