Destiny Media Working On Cross-Platform Streaming Video Prototype
February 27, 2012 at 4:00 AM (PT)
DESTINY MEDIA TECHNOLOGIES is testing its second generation playerless streaming video solution, which will eliminate the need for publishers to maintain separate streaming hardware and various video formats to reach their audience.
DESTINY has developed a single video file format that acts like any other web object, streaming directly from a web server and rendering directly by the browser without a player plug-in. The company reports the "technology is working well across a wide number of computers and smart phones, including MAC, WINDOWS, ANDROID, iPHONE, iPAD, BLACKBERRY and any other recent device that is standards compliant. Video playback is at twenty-four frames per second and at similar quality to competing offerings."
The company is currently building out the prototype solution into a mass-market product. A soft launch of the commercial product for sale to select early customers is expected by APRIL. Demos are still not publicly available, but can be arranged privately on site at DESTINY's offices by request.
