Mirror Image Internet, a leading provider of content delivery solutions powered by a patented global network, today announced that leading Swiss web television portal, www.internetTV.ch is utilizing Mirror Image for live streaming to mobile devices such as iPhone and Android handsets.
As a leading independent web TV platform and the official partner of Swiss Sports Television (www.schweizersportfernsehen.ch), www.internetTV.ch needed a multiplatform solution for delivering content to a range of mobile devices. With Mirror Image's multiprotocol streaming service, the company is able to successfully stream live video content to any user's device as well as offer launch applications for Apple and Android devices.
"As more of our viewers access content on their mobile devices, it was critical for us to partner with a CDN that could meet all of our needs for mobile devices," said Marco Demont, Chief Executive Officer at ipmedia AG. "Working with Mirror Image has allowed us to take advantage of the tremendous excitement that's happening around mobile and we expect our live streaming content on this platform to be a great option for end users."

Users do not need to employ specialized encoders or specially pre-formatted content for iPhone, Android or any specific device consumption. This capability enables businesses to streamline and simplify encoding workflows and eliminate the burden of storing and managing files in multiple client-specific formats.
"Over the past year, Mirror Image has seen the demand for mobile support grow significantly and with the advent of new platforms such as Android and form factors like tablets, we anticipate even greater growth to come," said James G. Hart, vice president of Sales and Marketing for Mirror Image. "ipmedia AG is a leader in its field and a testament to the power of mobile streaming. We look forward to working with them and bringing viewers a full mobile content experience."
