IBC 2014: Azure Media Services launches live streaming platform

Today, Azure Media Services is launching the public preview of its Live Streaming and Content Protection offerings. The same Internet scale streaming solution that a dozen leading international broadcasters used to deliver the 2014 Winter Games and 2014 FIFA World Cup to tens of millions of customers globally is now available in public preview to all Azure customers.

Users can now stream live events of any size with the same level of scalability, uptime, and reliability that was available to the Olympics and World Cup. And to protect customers’ premium video content, Azure Media is introducing a new Content Protection offering which features both static and dynamic encryption with first party PlayReady license delivery and an AES 128-bit key delivery service.

Azure Media Services will be sharing these announcements and more via their five keynote sessions at IBC.
