Deliver live video stream and simultaneously record it for playback on desktops, smartphones and other mobile devices
TEWKSBURY, MA – February 7, 2011 – Mirror Image® Internet, a leading provider of content delivery solutions powered by a patented global network, today announced a beta program that allows companies to sign up for Mirror Image’s new Live Stream Record and Playback Service. The new service gives companies the flexibility to stream their live events globally, while simultaneously recording it to storage for playback on the desktop, iPhone, iPad, Android, BlackBerry and more.
To view a live event while recording to Mirror Image’s globally distributed, Video On-Demand Storage, the customer sends a live video stream to the Mirror Image Live Stream Record and Playback Service. The live stream is simultaneously recorded to a local disk and replicated across globally distributed, Video On-Demand Storage, while end users view the live event with Mirror Image’s globally load balanced, Live Stream Service.
Within 15 minutes after the live event completes, the recorded stream is available on Mirror Image’s globally distributed, Video On-Demand Storage, and ready for delivery to video players and devices with the company’s globally balanced, Video On-Demand Service.
Mirror Image is the premier Content Delivery Network (CDN) for delivering live and on-demand video/audio streaming, video/audio/text chat, recording and more.
