ViewCast Streaming Media Management Software Now Supports Apple iPhone Mobile Devices

Niagara SCX 6.2's adaptive bit-rate video encoding and integrated segmenting capabilities enable seamless video delivery

PLANO, Texas, April 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ViewCast Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: VCST), a developer of industry-leading solutions for the transformation, management and delivery of digital media over IP and mobile networks, today announced the release of Niagara SCX® 6.2 - an enhanced version of the company's powerful streaming media management software that now supports HTTP-based adaptive streaming to Apple® iPhone®, iPad® and iTouch® mobile devices. New features include integrated segmenting, adaptive bit-rate encoding, support for CDN authentication protocols, and built-in AES-128 encryption. Niagara SCX software supports all of the most popular media formats, including Adobe Flash Dynamic Streaming, Windows Media, RealVideo, 3GPP and others.

"The adaptive and dynamic capabilities that we've brought to Niagara SCX 6.2 will markedly improve the live streaming delivery experience for both broadcasters and iPhone users," said Dave Stoner, President and CEO of ViewCast. "By eliminating the need for an external stream segmenter, we have also simplified encoding workflows and reduced overall system costs. Adaptive HTTP streaming for Apple iPhone mobile devices is the first of many extended features that we have planned for Niagara SCX v6 software in 2010."

About Niagara SCX 6.2

At the heart of Niagara SCX 6.2 is the new "iPhone Live Media Publisher" component, which includes proprietary, built-in MPEG-2 Transport Stream file segmenting and HTTP-based upload capabilities. The "iPhone Live Media Publisher" multiplexes encoded audio and video packets into multiple GOP-aligned, simultaneously output, MPEG-2 Transport Stream (M2TS) files, including one audio-only M2TS file. AAC audio encoder and H.264 video encoder configuration is made easy by profiles included in Niagara SCX 6.2. The M2TS files, along with their associated manifest files, are uploaded to major Content Delivery Networks (CDN) using CDN-specific authentication. Content protection is available via built-in AES-128 encryption.

Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...

Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded. A service mesh like Istio addr...
