Further Enhancements/Improvements to Mediasite Video Platform include:
• Optimized live- and behind-the-firewall streaming with Mediasite Deliver: Mediasite’s built-in intelligent streaming understands the browser and device the user is coming from. The end-user experiences a high-quality live or on-demand streaming experience, and has the ability to play premium content plug-in free and app-free on any browser or device, thanks to the adoption of MPEG-DASH for on-demand streaming and HLS for live streaming. Behind-the-firewall delivery is optimized via a strategic partnership and integration with Ramp’s best-of-breed eCDN and network caching solutions.
• New social video capabilities: Mediasite Showcase, a secure video portal to curate, spotlight and view live and on-demand content, supports deep engagement by allowing users to comment on videos and build custom video playlists that are easily sharable with colleagues, classmates and partners. Showcase also encourages content discovery with its powerful search and social sharing.
• Intuitive design and user experience: Enhanced user interface in My Mediasite, the easy-to-use personal capture software for anyone to record screencasts and video content from their laptop or computer, improves workflows and increases efficiency.
