Based on the success we've had with Abacast's current live peer-assisted video solutions, we think the ability to utilize Flash will further accelerate demand.
Camas, WA (PRWEB) July 1, 2009
Abacast Inc., a leader in real-time streaming solutions, today announced the availability of Adobe Flash support on its Live Peer-Assisted (P2P) Delivery platform. The Flash option is fully integrated into Abacast's industry-leading Live Peer-Assisted Delivery technology. With over 50 million client installs and millions of hours of consumer video delivery, Abacast Live Peer-Assisted Delivery is the most reliable, tested, and scalable peer-assisted delivery platform in the industry.
"With this release we are providing our customers the benefits of our peer-assisted solution, including proven longer audience engagement and thus more ability to monetize content, now utilizing the world's most popular video format," said Jim Kott, Abacast Co-President.
Abacast's Live Peer-Assisted Delivery combines the security, quality, and control of traditional unicast technology with the efficiency and resiliency of peer-assisted delivery.
