Imediasee Launches New Web Video Service Out of Beta with Major New Features
Easy-to-use web streaming provider now supports live video, H.264, while announcing new customers and price promotions.
(July 22, 2008)
DMN Newswire--2008-7-22--Imediasee, the first pay-as-you-go video streaming service with no required monthly fees or long term commitments, opened officially as a full release, after six months in beta testing and simultaneously announcing major new features, new customers and aggressive new price promotions.
Imediasee's affordably-priced service combines the strengths of web 2.0 ease-of-use with innovative video streaming technology to offer a compelling new way to deliver broadcast and HD quality video on the web.
"The time has come for high-quality web video to be easy and accessible to everyone," said Steve Popper, CEO of Broadline Media Corp, Imediasee's parent company. "With Imediasee, any website can now have spectacular-quality, full-screen video - affordably and with remarkable ease-of-use for both website owners and their viewers."
Imediasee delivers true streaming video, which supports live and on-demand video, offers superior content protection, and enables DVD-like "trick-modes" like pause, fast-forward and rewind (for on-demand content). Imediasee's provides everything needed for putting high-quality video on websites of any size: the Content Delivery Network (CDN), media servers, data storage, regular back-ups, and traffic analytics, in addition to encoding of content if needed.
The video is delivered via the Adobe® Flash® Player in H.264 or Flash Video format, which is supported by over 98% of web browsers and is the de facto standard for web video. Also, Imediasee is enhanced with Dynamic Delivery, which dynamically determines the best video quality and bit-rate for each individual viewer.
"Up to now, the web video options were constrained to either low-end, poor-quality 'tube-style' video sites, or expensive, complex CDNs and back-end systems," Popper explained. "With Imediasee, we offer the power of a robust CDN with the ease-of-use of a web-based solution while providing amazing picture quality - all at an extremely affordable price. This is the future of web video."
Among the new Imediasee features announced today:
* Support for live streaming (from simple webcams to broadcast-quality live productions), including ad hoc events, regularly scheduled events and 24/7 live feeds
* Support for H.264 in both live and recorded (on-demand) video
* Domain filtering to protect your video from unauthorized use
* Enhanced Dynamic Delivery for both live videos and recorded videos, which adjusts a viewer's video quality and data-rate based on their Internet connection speed
"Support for live video is particularly exciting, since there are few easy-to-use web-based live video solutions for the average web publisher," said Kent McGrew, Imediasee Vice President of Business Development.
Imediasee is also introducing the Imediasee Network Connection Manager, a plug-in for Adobe CS3/AS3 which allows customers to easily control Imediasee's Dynamic Delivery feature from the video receiving end.
In announcing the launch out of beta mode, Imediasee is releasing three new price promotions, in addition to the everyday affordable prices of the regular packages:
* On-demand video: 4,000GB for $999 - only $0.25/GB, 33% off regular prices
* Live ad hoc streaming video: 2,000GB for $999 - 50% off regular prices with no reservation or long term commitment required - stream live anytime
* Encoding of video: $20 per video plus $1 per minute for encoding - save $25 per video (usually $45 plus $1/min.)
Imediasee includes a wide array of web publishers, from large video-centric websites through small, individual sites such as:
