  • TV Everywhere
  • Some Patents in encoding and transcoding

Main features include:

ANVATO

Clearly, MEDIAMPLIFY can be compared with ANVATO, indicating that we provides the same amount of features:

  • Players – Apparently they have they own SDKs – However there are many open source players like FlowPlayer, VideoJS and many others that are compatible with m3u8, rtmp, even the jwPlayer with a $299 license can be resolved.
  • Reporting : Clearly reporting is key, however Analytics are done mostly via Google and others, but data presentation and reporting is fine.
  • Live Streaming: EGLA can handle hundreds if not thousands of live streams using Mediamplify.
  • Video Encoding:  Codecs are kings, we offer both on-premice and in the cloud
  • Cloud Editing:  We cannot do edition per-se, maybe CasperCG type of editing.
  • Syndication: Playback facility works and syndication is available via MediaPlugs
  • Subscriptions: Payments and authentications is done in the backend
  • Ad insertion: Likewise, ads can be inserted anytime in the playback facility or in the player.
