Destiny Media Launches New Clipstream® Video Playerless Streaming Software at Techvibes Conference
Vancouver, BC, March 30, 2005 - Destiny Media Technologies (DSNY OTC BB) is pleased to announce that Clipstream™ Video 2.5 will be launched today at the Techvibes Massive 2005 Technology Conference and Expo, Booth 226. (http://www.techvibes.com/massive/).
Even though functionality has expanded to include over 45 parameters and over 15 Java methods, this latest version is 22% smaller for Internet Explorer users. A smaller file size means that Clipstream™ enabled pages will snap open significantly faster.
The latest applet features a new codec that greatly improves image quality, while encoding creates videos with a higher, more consistent frame rate. New features that maximize flexibility and control for web authors include zoom, video playlists and scheduling to simulate live real time streaming.
The new encoder is smarter, helping the novice web video author “click and go” by automatically monitoring settings to produce the best quality. For more advanced users, intuitive checkboxes have been added so that the quality can be optimized for the source file format type. In a high volume environment, new batch encoding settings automate video creation and improve workflow.
Clipstream™ is a Java based playerless streaming video technology which reaches 98% of web users natively, without requiring the download of a third party player. Because it is based on the HTTP standard, the content passes through most firewalls and proxies. Since Clipstream™ content caches, web site owners can save up to 90% on bandwidth costs while providing a much higher quality of service for end users.
Clipstream™ works on a variety of operating systems including most versions of Windows, Mac, Solaris, Linux and on many Java powered devices. Because the Java applet resides on the server and not on the user’s desktop, the latest version of Clipstream™ can always be maintained without impacting audience reach.
Recognised as the leader in playerless streaming, Clipstream™ is the logical choice for content owners that want to reach the most people at the lowest cost.
