PETALUMA, USA: Dilithium, the global leader in high-quality multimedia delivery over mobile and broadband networks, announced the availability of live video and Video on Demand (VoD) streaming support for the iPhone OS 3.0 utilizing the Dilithium Content Adapter (DCA).
The DCA iPhone solution is an infrastructure offering that can be deployed by operators and service providers enabling their customers to access live or on demand video content through the standard iPhone Safari browser. The DCA iPhone solution is unique in its ability to deliver live and VoD to all iPhones (OS 2 and OS 3), using their built-in Safari browser or an installed application.
The DCA solution supports live and pre-recorded clips in a wide range of video formats. DCA performs on-the-fly and on demand media format and codec adaptation. iPhone users do not need to install a special application, and may be on WiFi, WiMax, 3G, or 3.5G (HSDPA) networks.
DCA patented and patent-pending technologies and architecture allow smart transcoding, transrating and transsizing on the fly. It supports the widest range of phones and devices through RTSP and HTTP (including progressive download).
It also has a PHP-based high level API that offers easy integration in operator and service provider frameworks and workflows. DCA has the most advanced built-in caching feature allowing significant reduction in unnecessary adaptation while providing support for ad-insertion.
