Learn about Newtek MediaDS your “Virtual Content Delivery Network”
The MediaDS is a revolutionary real-time media encoding and live streaming video delivery platform—the first integrated production system establishing a direct link between the producers who create content and the viewers that consume it.
NewTek’s Will Waters Explains MediaDS™
Are you looking for a way to bring your live and recorded content to the popular content delivery networks, including Facebook Live, Microsoft Azure, UStream, YouTube, Wowza, and others? MediaDS™ is the first-of-its-kind one-box solution for media producers looking for a content delivery system, with easy presets for these services plus a wide selection of others. And that’s just for starters.
Will Waters, Director of Product Marketing for NewTek™ explains the MediaDS, launched jointly by NewTek and Wowza™ on January 5th, 2017, in this interview with Ryan Salazar of Broadcast Beat. Getting beyond the technical and marketing descriptions of the product as shared in the release announcements, what are the implications of MediaDS for video producers and communicators?
Among lots of other information very helpful in understanding what this product brings to a media production pipeline, in this interview Waters characterizes MediaDS as a “virtual Content Delivery Network” (CDN). Up to now, a task like streaming a presentation in-house to staff in a company or to the student body on a campus required first sending the content out over the internet to a CDN or streaming service, so that this internal audience could then connect to that service via the internet and view the presentation. Often there are complications and the fear of potential vulnerabilities with setting local network firewalls to allow this. No more – MediaDS serves a web address (URL) that your audience can use to view your content without the need to go outside your local network and local firewalls. However, if you want to, you can also serve content to a global audience. And, local or global, MediaDS can serve your content to any device.
