Video streaming is a way of sending a one-way video recording – either pre-recorded or live – over a data network. It is a popular way for companies to convey information about their products, either business-to-business or business-to-home.

At MPP Global we supply both live and on-demand video streaming services, providing high-definition videos via Windows Media and Flash Media technology. In view of how commonplace digital media hubs have become in the home and office, video streaming is one of the best ways to convey up-to-date information to your clients.

Streaming media securely

Video streaming is used to send video clips and live video broadcasts to private users as well as other company networks. Unlike conventional video files, which are downloaded and stored before playing, streaming media files are stored as temporary files.

Buffering data

Thanks to the erratic nature of video streaming, a buffering system is employed. This means that, in return for a few seconds of waiting time, the video can be watched in its entirety with no annoying blips.

Buffering means that a few seconds of video data is sent to the destination computer before it is viewed on screen. Once the “Buffering 100% complete” message comes up the video continues to be streamed as it is watched, without the data being permanently stored by the end user’s PC.

We supply advanced streaming media solutions which have numerous advantages over conventional media downloads. Our video streaming solution means enhanced protection and security for your company, since the files cannot be written to disc by the customer. At the same time, the customer can replay, rewind and watch as many times as they want.
