Amsterdam, THE NETHERLANDS – 1st of June, 2015
Facing increasing demand for unified content delivery and the internal drive to reduce complexity StreamZilla CDN decided to redesign and optimize it’s workflow and setup. Ultimately this led to the decision to use and integrate Unified Streaming within StreamZilla as content delivery engine.
For StreamZilla it was quite clear: Unified Streaming’s technology is proven mature and stable as major broadcasters like the BBC are using it, but the challenge was to combine the rich feature set of StreamZilla CDN with that of Unified Streaming. “We have been the streaming CDN of choice for hundreds premium brands in the past ten years, we keep ahead of the competition by offering a broadcast-grade, innovative and price effective self-service CDN management platform. Using Unified Streaming’s technology was a logical choice for us”, says Stef van der Ziel, CEO StreamZilla.
Unified Streaming creates advanced software for video/audio delivery and content preparation. The Unified Streaming module transforms your webserver into a streaming server delivering all formats in combination with most popular DRM providers. StreamZilla CDN uses the module to re-package mp4 based content on-the-fly to all formats.
“We are very proud to work with StreamZilla, it again proves that our technology is able to do heavy lifting content delivery while providing the broadest feature set and unified platform support. We are looking forward to work with StreamZilla adding advanced features like DRM”, says Simon Westbroek VP Global Sales Unified Streaming.
About a month ago the new StreamZilla service was successfully launched. A new brand and website supports the revolutionary upgrade the CDN service has undergone. Please see here: http://www.streamzillacdn.com
