Two weeks ago Flumotion made online history with the first ever live streaming of an event using the new WebM video format. Only a few hours after the first WebM streams were live from GUADEC, Streaming Media announced our nomination for the Best Live Webcast of 2010 at this year’s European Readers’ Choice Awards in London.
Within 48 hours of the WebM release the development team at Flumotion were able to integrate the new format into its multi-format streaming technology and to create the first live WebM streaming worldwide. Then only 8 weeks later, Flumotion streamed the first event worldwide live using the new media file format released by Google last May. We have long recognised the need to support all industry standards to ensure our clients always reach the largest audience – no matter the device or format used. This ground breaking development not only highlights Flumotion’s versatile technology, but our solid commitment to the future and innovation of online video.
Our achievements in WebM and other areas has also led to nominations in 7 other categories, last year we won “Best Streaming Innovation” thanks to your generous support in voting for us. Please take a minute of your time to vote Flumotion this year!
