Qumu Announces Live Transform
Leading enterprise video platform provider enhances feature suite with improved live transcoding and mobile slide synchronization
San Bruno, CA, June 16, 2015—– Qumu (NASDAQ: QUMU), the leading business video platform provider, announced Live Transform, a capability based on technology licensed from partner, Wowza Media Systems. Live Transform adds new functionality to an already expansive feature set by providing:
- Live Transcoding – By transforming one or more incoming or encoding streams from a variety of supported capture devices, Qumu can deliver video in a variety of new stream formats in real time. Live Transform also transrates from a high bitrate to numerous lower bitrates. These are essential capabilities for customers with broad audiences for broadcast video. The live transcoding functionality of Live Transform also integrates seamlessly with Qumu’s patented Pathfinder and VideoNet Edge optimized delivery capabilities for flawless video delivery.
- Mobile Slide Synchronization – As mobile video becomes an important part of communications strategies throughout organizations, the ability to provide video/slide combinations without delays is critical. The capabilities of Wowza Streaming Engine combined with Qumu’s enhancements within Live Transform enable script events to be added to HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) broadcasts to ensure “in-band slide synchronization” or correctly timed slides along with video. This gives organizations the power to provide high quality presentations to anyone in their organization on any device.
“Our live transcoding capability brings new agility to the table when it comes to delivering video to users on any device, anywhere, at anytime,” says David Stubenvoll, CEO and co-founder, Wowza Media Systems, “Wowza is excited to work with Qumu to combine that capability with the functionality of a leading enterprise video platform.”
Industries like process and industrial manufacturing, financial services and professional services are implementing Qumu Live Transform to provide outstanding live video experiences for their users worldwide. Live Transform’s live transcoding and mobile slide synchronization capabilities make it easy to reach wider audiences with video presentations without straining network bandwidth or sacrificing quality.
“Businesses need to be able to reach everyone in their audience with their message,” says Qumu President, Vern Hanzlik, “by working with Wowza, Qumu Live Transform effectively amplifies the message, and makes sure it hits the targeted end users every time. We’re happy to partner with Wowza to give even more power to business communications all over the enterprise and all over the world.”
