Concurrent focused its eFactor development efforts on reducing the complexities of delivering video to a growing population of disparate connected devices. Content producers and service providers must currently prepare and package video content for delivery over three market-leading HTTP adaptive bitrate formats, including Apple, Adobe and Microsoft. Concurrent’s Transmux solution removes that complexity by repackaging a single source asset on-the-fly, while offering flexibility to support future formats. This greatly simplifies workflow and results in savings on both capital and operational expenditures, while reaching the widest audience possible.
eFactor’s Transmux is offered as a software development kit (SDK) or as an integrated feature in eFactor multi-format origin and edge servers, offering Concurrent’s customers ultimate flexibility. CDNs with substantial investment in existing infrastructure can seamlessly add value to their services by integrating Concurrent’s Transmux SDK with their existing servers. Customers that do not have existing infrastructure will benefit from fully packaged eFactor origin and edge servers that support on-the-fly Transmux of live and on-demand content.
