Kordia NZ has announced the launch of a new video web streaming platform that simplifies delivery and improves the quality of live video feeds to the internet.
Parliament has signed on as the first customer and Kordia says others are showing keen interest in the system.
The platform leverages the latest in multi-device video transcoding technology. The technology ensures the correct streaming profile is automatically applied to each end user based on screen size and connection speed / access method.
Kordia chief technology officer Aaron Olphert says the new streaming platform provides an end-to-end solution to remove all the complexity of delivering video feeds to the internet.
“The process from a customer perspective is quite simple. They provide us a video input and from there we do all the specialised processing to deliver the video stream to the Internet, and on to the viewers,” Olphert says.
The simplicity and quality of the service is evident in the success already enjoyed by our launch customer, Parliament , Olphert notes.
“Parliament TV previously had only two low resolution video stream options for viewers, played out through a combination of in-house legacy encoders and third party content distribution.
“But with this new service we are able to transform the user experience. We can stream Parliament TV to end users and automatically adapt the format to suit different devices – including support for Parliament’s new mobile device app.”
Parliament has already received very positive feedback with users Tweeting their appreciation at the ease of use compared to the former system.
The Kordia video web streaming platform has been architected to be multi-tenantable so that it can accommodate multiple customers. Kordia is in discussions with a number of broadcasters, content providers and large enterprises wanting to leverage its capability for the play out of their content to the Internet.
