On-demand packaging for HTTP
Deliver video using HTTP for Adobe Flash® Player compatible and iOS devices without preparing the assets ahead of time. On-demand packaging makes publishing easier by requiring one set of video files to deliver to multiple devices with or without Flash Player installed.
HLS file format for iOS, with adaptive bitrate support
Enjoy support for HTTP Live Streaming (HLS), the format for iOS, inside the Safari browser and within apps, including Adobe AIR® for iOS. HLS support includes adaptive bitrate for both live video and video on demand (VOD), and also supports content protection with Adobe Access software.
HDS file format for Flash Player, with adaptive bitrate support
Stream with HTTP Dynamic Streaming (HDS) using the F4F format, based on industry-standard MPEG-4 and supported by Flash Player. F4F support includes adaptive bitrate for both live video and video on demand (VOD) and, also supports content protection with Adobe Access software.
Audio extraction for HTTP
Deliver an audio-only stream for mobile devices on wireless networks to prevent rebuffering and meet Apple App Store requirements for audio-only bitrate as part of a multibitrate set.
Robust media origin services
Control your media publishing workflows, add redundancy, control access and protection, manage QoS, access advanced video player features, and leverage cloud services by operating your own media origin for both Flash Player and iOS HTTP streaming.
HTTP origin services
Stream your media to all devices from a high-performance, built-in HTTP server built on Apache.
Automatically provide video players with new or alternate locations if content is missing using built-in redirection in RTMP similar to HTTP 302 redirection.
Help ensure that the viewer experience is not affected when connections are disrupted by continuing to play back from the buffer while the player reestablishes the connection.
Control access to your content using server and player tokens. Adobe Media Server can process tokens against separate web services to grant or deny access.
Player binding with SWF file verification
Protect unauthorized video players from playing your video, saving bandwidth costs and protecting your monetization efforts. Use your SWF video player or a new SWF hashing tool to create unique encryption keys for RTMP, RTMFP, and HTTP delivery.
Access control lists
Control access to domains and IP addresses to protect your live or on-demand video streams or communications.
Secure administration API
Securely access deep performance metrics, change configurations, and set alarms through customized interfaces supporting web services or within custom Flash Player interfaces, giving you advanced control and integration.
Secure RTMP protocol
Enable secure video, audio, and data message transport to and from Flash Player compatible devices. The multiway RTMP protocol can be encrypted as well as tunneled over HTTP.
Advanced disk management for HTTP
Keep your video stream playing while managing your storage disks thanks to disk management for live HTTP streaming. You can safely deliver rich, live experiences with rolling DVR windows, time shifting, and instant replay.
Multiprotocol manifest generator tools
Generate manifest files more easily and with fewer errors with new tools that eliminate the need to manually create F4M and M3u8 files for live and VOD delivery to a variety of devices.
Maximize server resources with full 64-bit support that enables more memory cache, better network performance, less disruption, and faster stream starts.
Get the tools you need to track and generate reports on content delivery, server performance, and access using W3C-compliant ASCII logs.
Network prioritization QoS
Increase QoS by taking advantage of differentiated services for RTMP. Administrators can prioritize RTMP network traffic, reducing disruption caused by other network activity.
Monitor the performance of your entire server cluster from a single interface, allowing you to manage the server and perform operations easily on servers, streams, sessions, and clients.
HD video streaming
Deliver high-definition video up to 1080p, with bitrates from 700 Kbps up to and beyond 6Mbps, using either H264 or VP6 video codecs, or AAC and MP3 audio codecs.
Fast bitrate switching
Experience full adaptive bitrate streaming with fast, high-quality switching on desktop, iOS, and Andriod to avoid any stuttering or delays caused by CPU performance or bandwidth limitations.
Live streaming with DVR and time shifting
Spend more time with live video events and give the viewer control over your live stream with pause and seek backwards, instant replay, or play from start with robust server DVR support for RTMP, HTTP Dynamic Streaming, and HLS for iOS.
