Companies can now leverage the multiprotocol streaming and interactive features of Adobe Flash Media Enterprise Server software without the licensing costs and contracts associated with managing their own servers.Top benefits include:
Enhance the interactive capabilities of web applications with the peer-assisted networking features of Flash Media Server on Amazon Web Services. Affordably deliver breakthrough, engaging environments supported by efficient multiway communications, HD-quality video,integrated live video streams, delivery to mobile devices, plus deeper interactivity through server-side scripting access.
Use Flash Media Server on Amazon Web Services to stream media files directly from your Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) account. A read-through local disk cache is configured automatically, improving the performance of streaming media from S3.
Amazon CloudFront, AWS's easy to use CDN, works seamlessly with Flash Media Server on Amazon Web Services. A detailed tutorial for setting-up live HTTP streaming using Amazon CloudFront is available here.
Expand your audience to include iOS devices with HTTP Live Streaming (HLS). With the same media and live streams as those used for Flash Player compatible playback, you can deliver and protect full adaptive bitrate experiences to iOS devices as well as HTML5-enabled browsers.
Deliver video using HTTP for Flash Player compatible 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 with or without Flash Player installed.
Increase the capacity and fault tolerance of your interactive media experiences using RTMFP for peer assisted delivery (p2p). Now with new server chaining technology, you can distribute peer introductions across multiple servers. Perfect for multicast streaming, game development or communications apps.
Use peer-assisted networking in Adobe Flash Player 10.1 and later software to distribute high-quality, more secure streams among peers, significantly reducing the network load. Use prebuilt tools and Open Source Media Framework (OSMF) to get started quickly and easily.
Take advantage of the enhanced functionality in Flash Player 10.1 and later, which gives interactive access to media held in the buffer. Enable features such as trick mode playback (fast motion, slow motion, and frame stepping) as well as allow the video player to continue to play buffered video while reconnecting to the server if the connection is lost. Enjoy faster switching between streams when utilizing RTMP Dynamic Streaming for adaptive bitrate delivery, which improves the user experience during bandwidth fluctuations. RTMP Dynamic Streaming is a quality of service (QoS) feature that responds to changes in a viewer’s bandwidth or computing resources and quickly switches between bitrates during playback without disruption.
Create deep access controls such as domain white and black listing, external server authentication, authorization plug-ins, and other custom applications that protect interactive media experiences.
Deliver breakthrough, engaging environments with enhanced multiuser experiences (such as video chat, Voice over Internet Protocol, video overlays, server-side playlists, and server-side recording), plus deeper interactivity through an extensible development architecture and rich server-side scripting support.
Help ensure that existing time codes persist within media files to allow richer synchronization between streams, improving interactive experiences (such as switching audio tracks or camera angles) with multibitrate and multistream video and synchronized playback events.
Get started right away with easy, out-of-the-box deployment. Flash Media Server for Amazon Web Services makes it simple with prebuilt features for live, video on demand, and multiprotocol delivery of encrypted media to Flash Player and the Adobe AIR® runtime. Simply configure an Amazon EC2 instance to run a Flash Media Server Amazon Machine Image (AMI) and get up and running in minutes.
Archive live, high-definition streams on the server and enable HD DVR functionality (instant replay and time shifting) with support for H.264 stream recording for both RTMP and HTTP Dynamic Streaming. Pause a live stream, or seek backwards into the video that was missed.
