The latest version of Adobe Media Server software enables live and VOD streaming using the RTMP and HLS protocols. Supports delivery to the widest array of devices, including iOS and Android, internet-connected TVs, and desktops. Secure streams with dynamic media encryption.
Deliver video using HTTP and iOS devices without preparing the assets ahead of time. On-demand packaging makes publishing easier by requiring one set of video files to deliver to multiple devices.
Enjoy support for HTTP Live Streaming (HLS), the format for iOS, inside the Safari browser and within apps, including Adobe AIR® for iOS. HLS support includes adaptive bitrate for both live video and video on demand (VOD).
Help ensure that the viewer experience is not affected when connections are disrupted by continuing to play back from the buffer while the player reestablishes the connection.
Deliver an audio-only stream for mobile devices on wireless networks to prevent rebuffering and meet Apple App Store requirements for audio-only bitrate as part of a multibitrate set.
Stream your media to all devices from a high-performance, built-in HTTP server built on Apache.
Maximize your network using RTMP caching to reduce the load on your origin server and improve the quality of service for your end users. Edge caching is an easy-to-use feature that expands the RTMP capacity of your server deployment. (AMS5 PROFESSIONAL)
Control your media publishing workflows, add redundancy, control access and protection, manage QoS, access advanced video player features, and leverage cloud services by operating your own media origin via iOS HTTP streaming.
Automatically provide video players with new or alternate locations if content is missing using built-in redirection in RTMP similar to HTTP 302 redirection.
Expand your audience to include iOS devices with HTTP Live Streaming (HLS). You can deliver and protect full adaptive bitrate experiences to iOS devices as well as HTML5 browsers. (AMS5 PROFESSIONAL)
Protect your content streamed to desktop and devices using HTTP with reduced complexity thanks to real-time encryption, cacheable key delivery, and player binding.
Control access to your content using server and player tokens. Adobe Media Server can process tokens against separate web services to grant or deny access.
Protect unauthorized video players from playing your video in Flash Player or AIR application, saving bandwidth costs and protecting your monetization efforts. Use your SWF video player or a new SWF hashing tool to create unique encryption keys for RTMP, RTMFP, and HTTP delivery.
Control access to domains and IP addresses to protect your live or on-demand video streams or communications.
Securely access deep performance metrics, change configurations, and set alarms through customized interfaces supporting web services, giving you advanced control and integration.
Enable secure video, audio, and data message transport to and from compatible devices and applications. The multiway RTMP protocol can be encrypted as well as tunneled over HTTP.
Keep your video stream playing while managing your storage disks thanks to disk management for live HTTP streaming. You can safely deliver rich, live experiences with rolling DVR windows, time shifting, and instant replay.
Generate manifest files more easily and with fewer errors with new tools that eliminate the need to manually create F4M and M3u8 files for live and VOD delivery to a variety of devices.
Maximize server resources with full 64-bit support that enables more memory cache, better network performance, less disruption, and faster stream starts.
Get the tools you need to track and generate reports on content delivery, server performance, and access using W3C-compliant ASCII logs.
Increase QoS by taking advantage of differentiated services for RTMP. Administrators can prioritize RTMP network traffic, reducing disruption caused by other network activity.
Monitor the performance of your entire server cluster from a single interface, allowing you to manage the server and perform operations easily on servers, streams, sessions, and clients.
Use advanced access controls to extend the server for custom authentication, monitoring, and media location mapping required for robust deployment into your content delivery network. (AMS5 PROFESSIONAL)
Thanks to a server-side programming architecture, develop custom streaming and communication services that integrate within your network, consume or control external services, create server-side playlists, or archive media to disk. (AMS5 PROFESSIONAL)
