Our Tech department has completed an internal milestone towards the implementation of a VLC service which will allow for the creation of a one-step integration of any of Preview Networks’ feeds.
This means that in the near future, subscribers to PN’s video feeds will have a service significantly better, as it will allow for media partners to use “smart players” with broadband detection, Adaptive Bit Rate, and streamed service functionality for mobile devices.
These functionalities allow for users to get the most out of the different resolutions and to offer a terrific user experience, it also means that mobile users on a number of popular platforms (RIM, for example) can have access streamed servers for the best and optimal viewer experience of PN’s material.
In addition, users of the service will be able to copy a simple code into a player and obtain content streamed directly form our server into ANY video player.
We leave you with a video sample of Big Buck Bunny, a movie project associated with VLCs platform watch it here, but click on the links to learn more about VLC, addaptive bit rates, and why they will be a significant improvement to PNs platform.
