Product Description

Expand your business globally
Enable your business to expand and reach a global audience by leveraging the global footprint of Windows Azure and media services. Forget about investing in infrastructure. You can spin up resources around the globe whenever you need them, and switch it all off when you’re done. You only pay for what you need, when you need it.

On demand transcoding
Use the cloud service to transcode your videos. Rely on our managed global data centers to transcode your media assets without having to plan for capacity spikes or worry about idle datacenters. Use Microsoft transcoders or one of our integrated partner encoders.

Protect your premium media assets
Deliver premium content with DRM protection and secure storage. Your assets are protected with storage encryption during upload, and with schemes like Playready and AES encryption during playback.

Easily reach multiple devices
The most cost effective way to reach any device anywhere. Transcode once and deliver in multiple formats. Our streaming service supports real-time dynamic packaging to HTTP Live Streaming (HLS), Smooth Streaming, and MPEG-DASH. Progressive downloads deliver the best format for the devices your customers are using. Use dynamic packaging to save on storage costs by storing a single copy of your content.
