VBrick 9000 Series Encoders are Akamai-Qualified
Herndon, VA, July 8, 2014 – VBrick Systems, Inc., a leading enterprise video platform provider, today announced that its VBrick 9000 Series product line has been qualified by Akamai Technologies, one of the world’s largest content delivery networks, to deliver live video streams via the Akamai Intelligent Platform.
The VBrick 9000 Series H.264 encoders use purpose-built hardware running a real-time operating system to combine encoding, networking, stream serving and recording functions to deliver exceptional price-performance and ease-of-use. The VBrick 9000 Series Presentation Appliance, VBrick’s latest addition to the 9000 Series line, enables non-technical presenters to use a simple, web-based interface to combine audio, camera inputs and VGA/ HDMI/DVI/DisplayPort desktop capture inputs into one, H.264 video stream.

Akamai’s Media Delivery Solutions for live and linear video streaming support RTMP, HDS, HLS, Smooth, and DASH formats, offering users greater flexibility to reach an ever-increasing array of connected devices. The solutions are designed to help simplify the complexities of delivering high-quality video at ever-increasing scale while minimizing the chance of quality loss through local network issues and congestion.
