Anevia ViaMotion First Video Server to Offer WebM Live Streaming With Adaptive Bitrate

PARIS, FRANCE--(Marketwire - Feb. 3, 2011) - Anevia, a leader in video streaming solutions and service infrastructure for live TV and video on demand (VOD), today announced that a newly launched version of its ViaMotion video server is the first to support WebM live streaming with adaptive bitrate.

ViaMotion is a software-based carrier-grade streaming solution designed to be as versatile as possible by supporting a wide range of protocols. It has already been deployed for streaming real-time live and on-demand MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 (H.264) video content to hundreds of thousands of Set Top Boxes. The ViaMotion 3Screens™ technology allows for over the top (OTT) video streaming to multiple devices including the Apple iPhone and iPad with the HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) protocol, PCs with Microsoft Silverlight Smooth Streaming, and Real Time Protocol (RTP) mobile streaming to Blackberry devices.

Anevia's support for WebM allows for compatibility with Google's latest release of its Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS for mobile phones, tablets, and television sets running Google TV. ViaMotion also supports streaming to WebM compatible web browsers including the beta release of Firefox 4, Opera 11, and the latest version of Google Chrome.

"ViaMotion is the first solution that implements WebM live video streaming with adaptive bitrate managed by the server; this is especially important for telecom operators as it enables them to offer continuous video streaming over mobile networks using the latest Android-based devices ," said Lionel Bringuier, CTO at Anevia. "This represents an additional step towards full convergence within a single video server."
