Sorenson Media’s new release underscores content providers’ desire to target mobile devices and also to deliver higher-quality video. Adaptive bit rate streaming is crucial for mobile because it auto-adjusts the quality of the video sent depending on variable mobile network conditions. Similarly, for larger, high-quality video files, adaptive bit rate streaming seamlessly reduces quality when required network capacity isn’t available.
Among other features included, Squeeze Server 1.5 emphasizes cloud delivery; transcoding processes can run from an enterprise’s server closet, data center, and on various clouds like Amazon Web Services or Microsoft Azure. A range of encoding parameters, or presets, is also included in the Preset Exchange, to more easily encode for various formats and devices.
