Akamai Technologies, Inc. Announces Native MPEG-DASH and HDS Support for Live Video Workflows

Akamai Technologies, Inc. announced that it is adding native support for the emerging Motion Picture Experts Group-Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (MPEG-DASH) and HTTP Dynamic Streaming (HDS) formats for live and linear streaming content. By accepting these additional formats into its globally distributed entry points, Akamai expects to offer its customers greater flexibility to reach an ever-increasing array of connected devices. MPEG-DASH support addresses the requirements of Hybrid Broadcast Broadband Television (HbbTV), a pan-European specification for interactive television delivered over both broadcast and broadband Internet connections, while HDS is widely supported by Adobe Flash. The addition of DASH and HDS complements Akamai's existing support for RTMP and HLS formats, underscoring its commitment to simplify the evolving complexities of delivering high-quality live and linear online video at scale. The new capability is designed to allow event producers to send their streams directly into Akamai ingest servers via nearby entry points, minimizing the chance of quality loss through local network issues and congestion. In addition, Akamai is working with encoder vendors to qualify their offerings for compatibility, and has also added DASH support to its Adaptive Media Player. This three-pronged approach is intended to help users more easily stream live events at higher quality to audiences worldwide. Elemental Technologies is the first partner to be qualified by Akamai for direct DASH and HDS ingest. Their Elemental(R) Live and Elemental(R) Server products have been configured and tested in an effort to ensure that streaming content in these new formats is securely and efficiently transferred through Akamai's ingest points. Akamai's Adaptive Media Player offers support for DASH, including the newly released dash.js v1.1.2 standard. Already in use by some of the broadcasters, the Adaptive Media Player provides a simple yet powerful approach to player technology across connected devices. As a charter member of the DASH Industry Forum and as one of the first content delivery networks to offer a complete DASH workflow for live streaming, Akamai is committed to supporting the open standard for helping simplify video delivery across connected devices.

Akamai Technologies, Announces its Cloud Workflow Successfully Completes MPAA Security Assessment

Akamai Technologies, Inc. announced its cloud-based digital media workflow has passed the Motion Picture Association of America's (MPAA) security assessment. As one of the first to undergo an MPAA security assessment, Akamai's cloud workflow has the integrated digital rights management (DRM) element that is critical for premium content protection. The new capability is designed to enable premium content owners to take advantage of the quality benefits and economic efficiencies of Akamai's cloud-based media workflow. Content providers need only upload a single source file to Akamai, which will facilitate the DRM processing in addition to transcoding and stream packaging for optimized, secure delivery to connected devices. The cloud-based workflow is intended to alleviate the physical resources and operational complexities often associated with in-house content preparation. In conjunction with the introduction of its secure workflow, Akamai announced its DRM partner program, designed to integrate a range of DRM providers and technologies into the Akamai workflow and offer customers an array of options to best meet their DRM requirements. The first two participants, Irdeto and BuyDRM, will offer Akamai customers a choice of Microsoft PlayReady and Adobe Access DRM technologies.
