Inlet Technologies to show support for Microsoft IIS7 Smooth Streaming
Inlet Technologies will demonstrate its support for Microsoft Internet Information Services 7.0 (IIS7) Smooth Streaming technology.
Smooth Streaming is Microsoft’s new HTTP-based adaptive streaming platform, an advanced media delivery method that switches seamlessly between multiple streams, depending on the available bandwidth and PC performance at any given moment.
The best possible quality video stream is automatically delivered to the end user without stuttering, dropped frames or buffering. While the Smooth Streaming process itself is invisible to the end user, it results in a much improved user experience. It also offers broadcasters the ability to offer HD (720p+) streams to clients who have sufficient bandwidth without alienating those with lower-speed connections.
See Inlet Technologies at the NAB Show in Booth SL5624.
