Today’s market is moving heavily in the direction of Rich Media. Google’s latest algorithms love to find sites bountiful with media and diversified content; and so does your traffic. But there’s nothing more frustrating than getting a poor quality presentation just because transfer specs must be configured for those with the lowest connectivity. Under normal circumstances, if your rich media quality is too high, those with low Internet speeds will have trouble viewing it; if the quality is too low, your media presentation makes you look bad.
The days of the low quality media experience are over. IIS Media Services has given us Smooth Streaming, an extension enabling adaptive media streaming to Silverlight and other HTTP clients.
Smooth Streaming delivers small content fragments, chosen from a pool of content encoded at various quality levels (usually 2 seconds in length), and verifies that each arrives and is played correctly. By using this technology, media is received at optimal resolution by each end user; those with modern computers and high connectivity can view true 1080P, while those with lesser connectivity receive the most optimized viewing experience based on their given criteria.
Implementing Smooth Streaming solutions into your media environment will give you a code-free deployment and simplified content management, while offering your viewers an optimized media experience that will invite them to spend more time on your site.
To begin utilizing these rich media solutions, visit IIS Smooth Streaming.
