Akamai Announces Variable Bit Rate Streaming Support

Akamai Technologies Inc., a provider of managed services for powering rich media, dynamic transactions, and enterprise applications online, is now offering variable bit rate streaming support for live and high-quality video content on the iPhone and iPod touch.

Variable bit rate streaming was a key feature delivered in the recent iPhone 3.0 update and this new capability expands Akamai's ability to provide consumers with the highest quality video streaming experience on their iPhone or iPod touch. Akamai HTTP Streaming for the iPhone is available as part of Akamai's Media Delivery solution.

The solution can be viewed in action at the newly launched iPhone 3.0 Video Showcase (iphone.akamai.com). Additionally, a whitepaper on "Streaming to the iPhone 3.0" best practices is available at the company's web site.

"Apple's extensive support for new web standards like HTML 5 and HTTP streaming of live and on-demand video to the iPhone and iPod touch has transformed the quality of video content that consumers can now view while mobile," said Tim Napoleon, chief strategist Digital Media at Akamai.

Variable bit rate streaming over HTTP benefits the consumer by enabling a high fidelity viewing experience at any bit rate, faster video start up times and reduced video buffering.
