Encode once, stream everywhere
The combination of just-in-time packaging and encryption with Azure Media Services reduces the complexity and cost of cross-platform content delivery. It’s also future proof: as new encoding formats or versions emerge, there’s no need to re-prepare your library.
Scalable streaming for any size audience
Media Services has webcasted some of the world’s largest events, including the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2014 Sochi Winter Games. Whether you expect to set new global streaming records or need a cost-effective solution for small local events, Media Services can scale to any size audience.
Full cloud DVR workflow capabilities
Create on-demand assets instantly from your live linear streams, trim unwanted content from the tops and tails of live archives, and create clips from live streams for instant publishing. Media Services DVR workflow capabilities dramatically speed up time to market for on-demand assets and reduce costs.
One set of encoders for any size screen
Dynamic manifests, a new Media Services feature, lets you prepare one asset with the quality levels and resolutions needed for any device, and filter based on a device profile. Filter by resolution, bit rate, or even codec to dynamically create streaming assets optimized for every size screen.
Flexible monetization options
Whether you have a subscription model requiring full DRM enforcement and subscriber authentication, or use dynamic ad insertion and lighter-weight encryption, Media Services can meet your business requirements.
