The new RTMFP technology reduces bandwidth usage without network upgrades

By CBR Staff Writer

Adobe Systems has unveiled an offering used for streaming video and real-time communication in three new versions, which include Flash Media Streaming Server 4, Flash Media Interactive Server 4 and Flash Media Enterprise Server 4, to cater to the need of every type of customer.

The company said that the new Flash Media Server 4 family of products enables peer-assisted networking, with Real Time Media Flow Protocol (RTMFP), which reduces bandwidth usage.

The Flash Media Server 4 family of products are designed for small and medium sized publishers up to large enterprise deployments, and all versions of Adobe Flash Media Server 4 leverage the benefits of 64-bit operating systems, which provide nearly unlimited memory range to increase caching capacity, deliver advanced interactive services and increase the quality of service, Adobe said.

The Flash Media Streaming Server 4 software allows small to medium sized customers to start streaming high quality live and on-demand content to an array of platforms and devices, with content protection and advanced playback experiences.

The Flash Media Interactive Server 4 enables secure, scalable live and on-demand playback experiences, along with real-time, social media applications.

Adobe’s Flash Media Enterprise Server 4 is build on the capabilities of the Flash Media Streaming and Flash Media Interactive Servers, which allows enterprise customers to deliver video communication and collaboration by providing a software approach to large-scale video streaming and social applications, across multiple screens.

The company said that the new RTMFP technology reduces bandwidth usage without network upgrades by leveraging connected Flash Player clients for real-time data delivery across the network, enabling lower costs and efficient network management.

Further, customers can utilise IP multicast or peer-to-peer delivery independently or combine them as Multicast Fusion, which increases the capacity and quality within both private and public networks.
