ViewCast updates Niagara Pro, GoStream to provide Adobe Flash Live support
ViewCast is providing an optional update to its Niagara Pro and Niagara GoStream Plus encoding platforms that adds the ability to encode real-time video streams in the Adobe Flash Live format. The new update will give companies the ability to reach the broad and rapidly growing audience of Internet users who prefer Flash Live for viewing streaming video.
The Flash Live option joins other industry-standard codecs, including MPEG-4, H.263, Windows Media and RealNetworks, currently shipping with the Niagara SCX encoder control and management software suite. Users can select any combination of these formats and control streaming systems throughout an enterprise or over the Internet with a single user interface. ViewCast Niagara appliances equipped with Flash Live are an optimal fit with the leading content delivery networks that now support the latest Flash Live capabilities.
