Mirror Image Internet, a leading provider of edge computing, streaming and content delivery solutions, today announced the availability of Publisher, a powerful and comprehensive online video publishing solution. The service is an all-inclusive video solution that combines the best live video streaming services with the best video on demand features available today.
"Mirror Image is pleased to offer Publisher, the most comprehensive online video publishing solution available for live and VOD traffic," said Robert Andrews, Chief Operating Officer for Mirror Image Internet. "Publisher redefines what has been called an Online Video Platform to include built-in capabilities that transcode audio and video files in the Cloud, record and playback live events and monitor both the ingress and egress video streams."
Mirror Image Internet designed Publisher to make it easier and more effective for news, media, entertainment, sports organizations and educational institutions to publish videos online. Publisher’s capabilities include: real-time transcoding of live events and video on demand (VOD), live video recording and playback, live and VOD monitoring, ad insertion, player side and server side analytics, integration with Google Analytics™ and video delivery tightly integrated with Mirror Image’s patented global Dynamic Delivery Network (DDN).
Publisher’s capabilities include:
Audio and Video Transcoding in the Cloud Publisher enables companies to transcode their audio and video assets in the Cloud in all the popular video formats for multi-protocol streaming to all types of screens – desktop and mobile devices. A selection of preconfigured formats for these devices allow users to choose them without having to know the best bit rate for a particular device, and they also have the ability to customize those settings. Formats include: AAC, AVI, 3GP, FLV, MOV, MP3, MP4, MPEG, OGG, WAV, WEBM, WMA, WMV, and many more.
Live Stream Recording and Playback
Live events can easily be recorded and made available for viewing immediately after the event. Publisher allows companies to share these videos with built in social media tools for Facebook, Twitter and other social networking sites.
Publisher can monitor the ingress and egress streams every five minutes to confirm the video stream is active. Additionally, Publisher can retry a failed video stream and alert the customer after a failed retry. No other OVP offers this capability.
Integration with Dynamic Delivery Network
Publisher is highly customizable allowing companies the ability to integrate automated workflows to manage content provided by a variety of sources including mobile devices, live stream encoders, desktop digital video cameras and origin media server relays. The service works in harmony with Mirror Image’s ClearVue Control Center, allowing companies to create, enable and disable streaming video applications for live and VOD delivery.
Mirror Image Publisher is available beginning today. For more information about Publisher and to request your free 30-day trial account, visit: http://bit.ly/XFSfxX.
