Better Viewing Experience:
- Leading with HTML5 enables faster video playback than traditional Flash-based players.
- Dynamic switching between HTML5 and Flash allows videos to quickly render on iOS, Android, Windows 8 devices, and more.
- The players select the optimal video format and bitrate based on the device, browser and operating system.
- A simple-to-use console enables companies to create beautiful, customized HTML5 players, in which skins, layout and controls are easily configured, ensuring a consistent experience for all viewers.
- Sharing features and social media integration allow videos to be distributed instantly across leading social networks such as Twitter, Facebook, and many others.
Easy and Low-Cost Player Management
- HTML5-based players enable companies to dedicate less development resources for producing and managing video players than has been traditionally required.
- mpx automatically associates all the metadata and business policies for content across both HTML5 and Flash players. This means there is no need to create duplicate systems for individual players, unlike other solutions in the market.
- The Player Service automatically updates with iOS, Android and Windows 8 releases, ensuring that videos are always available.
- Closed captioning persistence saves and applies your language settings to both HTML5 and Flash, ensuring policy compliance.
- The players enable optimization of advertising for both video on-demand (VOD) and live ad insertion through advertising partners such as FreeWheel, Adobe Auditude, and DoubleClick by Google.
- Companies can monitor the quality of their players with real-time and historical reporting tools, and access data on usage, quality of service, and audience engagement through partnerships with Conviva, Google Analytics, Omniture, Comscore, Nielsen, and more.
- The players are also compatible with video recommendations engines that can increase time on-site by suggesting what to watch after each video completion.
