Windows Media allows a seamless integration of audio and video on the same server, multi-bitrate streaming, firewall resistancy, fast streaming, and much more. Serious streamers rely on the stability and ease of use Windows Media Services 9 provides, which targets over 98% of all internet connected PC's without requiring a player download.
All of our Windows Media 9 servers operate on port 80 (Web or HTTP) for access to the stream, allowing listeners to tune in from heavily firewalled locations. Wireless network optimization and near-real-time streaming options are also available.
With improved audio/video quality even at high compression, itís possible to compress Digital 5.1 Surround Sound to as low as 128 Kbps and 24-bit audio as well as broadcast support for full-screen video, Windows Media sets the new standard for audio and video quality. This encoding system is the standard format for many FM radio stations and satellite/terrestrial TV's that delivers audio or video in a live situation or on-demand for archived broadcasts around the globe.
