iPhone Encoder: Digital Rapids TouchStream
A new coding option allows Digital Rapids' TouchStream encoder to stream live to iPhone and iPod Touch devices.
A new coding option allows Digital Rapids' TouchStream portable encoding appliance to stream live audio and video to an Apple iPhone or iPod Touch. According to the company, the iPhone module supports adaptive bit-rate delivery to the device by encoding to multiple output streams simultaneously at different bit rates, each divided into segments ready for adaptive delivery by a server or CDN. As content is delivered to each viewer, delivery switches between the outputs to provide the best quality based on available network bandwidth. The new TouchStream also includes Microsoft IIS Smooth Streaming support for adaptive bit-rate delivery to Microsoft Silverlight viewing clients on the Internet and on mobile devices.
