Microsoft Corporation Adds Video To Azure Lineup

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is launching a cloud capability, Windows Azure Media Services, for delivering video to clients, including devices.

Windows Azure Media Services is a PaaS (Platform as a Service) for building and delivering media solutions to customers, and users can build media workflows in the cloud.

Streaming formats are supported, including Smooth Streaming, HTTP Live Streaming, and Flash Media Streaming, with services being delivered to HTML5, Silverlight, Flash, and Windows 8 clients as well as to Apple iPad and iPhone, Google Android, and Xbox and Windows Phone devices.

Scott Guthrie, Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) corporate vice president in the Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) Server and Tools Business, said that, “Windows Azure Media Services offers a bunch of ready-to-use services that enable the fast ingestion, encoding, format-conversion, storage, content protection, and streaming (both live and on-demand) of video. It also integrates and exposes services provided by industry leading partners — enabling an incredibly deep media stack of functionality that you can leverage. One of the unique aspects of Windows Azure Media Services is that all of its features are exposed using a consistent HTTP REST API. This is true both for the media services Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) has built, as well as the partner-delivered media services that are enabled through it. This makes it incredibly easy to automate media workflows and integrate the combined set of services within your applications and media solutions”.
