New York, NY (PRWEB) July 18, 2012
Dailymotion (http://www.dailymotion.com), the world’s second largest video portal with more than 100 million unique monthly visitors, today launched the fully revamped Dailymotion Cloud video streaming platform, a cloud-based service providing brands, publishers, advertisers, broadcasters and other partners with a powerful suite of tools to instantly stream content online. Bringing one of the most robust and versatile toolsets to the web video arena, the platform stores all content conveniently in the cloud for smooth, hassle-free uploads and unprecedented versatility to control and customize the audience’s content viewing experience.
Dailymotion cloud’s newest features include DRM support for Adobe Flash Access and Microsoft Playready, offering publishers who require extra-strength security of their video content capabilities to do so on these respective platforms. Dailymotion.com users can also syndicate content between the Cloud service and their personal video archives, including metadata, titles and description tagging. Most essential for publishers looking to recoup costs or monetize content, in-stream advertising capabilities provide revenue streams that can not only pay for the service’s usage but generate profit seamlessly.
Providing partners with a full range of customizable player designs, options for tailoring allow control of everything from progress bar size and color to full screen toggle, button selection, white label branding and much more. The platform also provides comprehensive viewership statistics, reporting in real-time overall volume of video consumption, traffic, length of viewership and bandwidth monitoring.
Dailymotion Cloud features a simple yet powerful intake mechanism, capable of simultaneous, multiple video upload, URL importation or full Dailymotion video account migration to build a content library. Once uploaded, Dailymotion Cloud’s ultra-fast encoding platform provides adaptive bit rate streaming for automatically optimized viewer playback. Fully secure hosting protects content from piracy or unauthorized download, while highly scalable storage features provide automated backup. More than 100Gbps of on-demand bandwidth ensures the fastest possible preparation of content behind the publisher-facing dashboard. The service’s encoders also deliver playback capability for a gambit of devices, including tablets, smartphones, web TVs and any desktop OS.
Unique differentials of the service include hassle-free, no-commitment registration with secure online payment processing and convenient pricing solely based on usage volume. Unlimited streaming hours and data storage provide maximum scalability for any size usage from amateur to enterprise and some of the most advanced customization features available on any cloud-based video streaming platform. Dailymotion Cloud puts full control in the hands of the partner, with technology from one of the web’s largest, well-established video providers. In addition to all its current features, live broadcast and recording features will be available as of late May 2012.
“Breaking in to the cloud platform arena gives Dailymotion’s premium content providers and any web publisher a powerful and unrivaled set of online broadcasting tools,” said Roland Hamilton, Managing Director of Dailymotion US. “We’re proud to compete with some of the web’s biggest video companies, delivering a highly affordable, flexible and robust cloud-based video streaming service. Our expertise as a major independent video platform is a great bonus for all of our clients”
Priced per hour of video content streamed, Dailymotion Cloud provides price breaks dependent upon volume of overall video consumption from the audience. Beginning at 12₡/hr for less than 100k hours of monthly video consumed or broadcasted through the service, prices drop as low as 6₡/hr for usage upward of 10M monthly hours. Dailymotion Cloud’s live streaming rates are the lowest available anywhere on the web.
