After being an IBC exhibitor last year, this year we decided to walk. That is, arrange meetings with our potential and current clients and partners in advance and then visit the booths of other interesting companies, without being exhibitors ourselves. It worked out really well.
Viblast PDN won in the Delivery Network category at this year’s European Streaming Media Readers’ Choice Awards. The other finalists in the category were Arkena Content Delivery Network and Ericsson Media Delivery Network and the winner was elected by an online vote earlier this year. Our hybrid delivery solution was also a finalist in the Best Streaming Innovation category.
Streaming Media readers cast their votes in favor of Viblast PDN, making our client-assisted video delivery technology a finalist for Best Streaming Innovation and Delivery Network in the European Readers Choice Awards 2015.
Today’s Viblast Player v6.0 finally scales the mountain of work called Flash fallback - and, consequently, adds Firefox and IE 10+ support for video.js users. The second major addition is an updated API for working with adaptive bitrate (ABR) streams.
The newly released Viblast Player update brings numerous fixes and stronger Firefox support, including improved JW Player & Flowplayer integration. It is available for download today.
In a noteworthy release of the Viblast Player iOS SDK, users can now play MPEG-DASH streams in their iOS apps. An interesting challenge to overcome, DASH playback in iOS was among the most requested Viblast Player features, partially because very few such solutions exist.
Streaming servers and Viblast PDN are such a good fit that we just cannot help reaching out to them. Our partnership with WMSPanel is an excellent illustration of this technology fit - their Nimble Streamer is focused on modern streaming protocols, just like we are, and is a flexible technology that is both easy to configure and to extend with Viblast PDN’s peer-assisted delivery.
This week Viblast’s own peer swarm grew bigger - through our partnership with Unified Streaming, a leading video streaming technology provider. We are more than excited to keep meeting excellent companies with whom we align not only in terms of technology fit but also in our vision for the future of the video industry.
The newly released Viblast Player update comes with improved HLS support for video-on-demand (VOD), including seek functionality. It is available for download today.
