castLabs Launch New PRESTOplay Suite of Video Player SDKs

castLabs announce the launch of the PRESTOplay suite of Video Player SDKs for Browsers and iOS/Android with marked improvements on player customization, cross-plugin integration, and offline downloading capabilities.

Los Angeles, CA(03 Feb 2017)

castLabs, a digital video technology and services company, has announced the launch of PRESTOplay, a range of powerful DRM-enabled video player SDKs simplifying multi-screen playback across browsers, Android, and iOS devices.

PRESTOplay simplifies the development of feature-rich video player applications for commercial OTT and IPTV streaming services. The software development kits greatly reduce development time, lowering costs and speeding up the launch of player applications to market.

PRESTOplay SDKs are available now direct from castLabs as the successor to the company’s DASH Everywhere and Video Player SDKs for Android and iOS. Retaining the best features of the DASH Everywhere player, the new framework PRESTOplay is built upon also enables greater flexibility for future development.

New improvements in the initial PRESTOplay release include:

  • New offline downloading capabilities with time limited secure licensing.
  • Improved multi-device player customization including cross-device playback switching.
  • Enhanced cross-plugin integration e.g. automated synchronisation between video analytics and ad-insertion.

“PRESTOplay allows you to swiftly deliver multi-device, multi-screen, and multi-format content to your customers quickly, and at low cost”, said Michael Stattmann, CEO of castLabs. “Whether delivering content live, on-demand or for offline download, PRESTOplay SDKs facilitate the highest quality video playback to your customers’ streaming environment.”
