The new platform is designed for video streaming in Microsoft Silverlight Smooth Streaming, Adobe Flash and Apple HTTP live streaming for both live and on-demand applications. The software engine activates any supported format without having to switch equipment. The hardware platform, which is built with servers from IBM, delivers guaranteed capacities. The BkS200 also includes RAID technology for redundancy.
While collecting and redistributing streaming requests, the load-balancing and fail-over protection are managed by the Broadpeak BkM100 CDN Mediator. Both the streamers and the Mediator can be integrated with several commercial or home-grown service platforms.
