Flussonic, a leader in the video streaming space, announced today (23 October) that their award-winning platform for OTT and IPTV services, Flussonic Media Server, is now qualified for use with the new Akamai Media Services Live 3.2 and 4.x network. Established in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Akamai is a corporation that provides, among other services, a distributed computing platform for global Internet content delivery and application sharing.
It is highly beneficial to test an encoder in a non-production environment before it is used to stream live video. Thanks to collaboration between Akamai and Flussonic, producers of live video content now have a solution for their streamings that is suitable for low-latency and provides an outstanding video quality to its viewers regardless of where they are located. This opens a new range of possibilities for stable and high-quality video streams in the most demanding scenarios.
To qualify for Akamai, interested companies have to pass an extensive and complex testing system that goes from calls with representatives of both companies to demanding tests in the Akamai lab. When the process is complete, qualified partners are highlighted to the Akamai’s field teams and suggested to their customers and prospects as recommended solutions to enable their live events in Media Services Live. You can find the most recent list of Partner Encoders here.
