Advection.NET is your most rapid, flexible, and cost effective path to success with streaming media delivery. For much less than the cost of a single employee, you can benefit from our experience delivering billions of streams to delighted viewers over the past five years.
You need technical superiority and a quality of work you can count on. But today, state of the art products and services aren’t enough. All the technological innovation and unique intellectual property in the world can’t guarantee success.
To get ahead, you need revolutionary ideas focused on your business model, with the solid foundation of superior industry knowledge. You need to implement those ideas fast, completing your initiatives ahead of time and under budget.
Most of our clients are already experts in the online media industry. To bring more than just industry knowledge to the table, Advection.NET’s founders work directly with our clients to build an intimate understanding of each client’s needs. We then rapidly adapt our technologies to suit. This approach allows us to partner with you to to work towards your objectives.
When you’re looking for a competitive edge, you need to know not just that we understand our business, but that we understand yours. We have a proven track record of very rapidly grasping our clients’ requirements and turning those into measurable results.
Though our pricing is already highly competitive, we provide exceptional service level agreements that recognize streaming or DRM is vital to your business, and we give you the raw logs containing the data to prove it.
We’ll help you satisfy every viewer by working with you to measure the real return on your investment in streaming. We’ll help you gauge the quality of production, look at your own streams from the users’ viewpoint, and calculate the real revenue or savings being driven by your streams.
Through our partners, we also offer you fully accountable end-user support, with 24/7 engineers who know how to make your users’ media players and operating systems play nice with the most recent revenue generators like DRM downloads and pay-per-minute streaming. By tracking end-user support, we continually refine your service offerings to satisfy the widest range of your customers.
Most streaming media networks were designed and built for speeds ranging from modems to ISDN, and many of them use third party caching technologies instead of native media servers designed by the companies behind your media formats.
In contrast, Windows Media Player combined with a true Windows Media Server streaming network can’t be beat. Your viewers will enjoy the greatly enhanced streaming experience ensured by technologies introduced with Windows Media 9 Series such as Fast Start, Fast Cache, Fast Recovery, and Fast Reconnect, as well as server-side playlists, comprehensive advertising types, and auto-generated playlists.
Our global network is specifically tuned for broadband, with points-of-presence located at the same international Internet exchange points used by your end users’ Internet service providers. This makes our network the best place to host your new high definition WMVHD content, as well as content targeting Windows Media Center Edition. We’ve even encoded thousands of movies for our clients targeting the new Portable Media Center devices from Creative, Samsung, or others.
Advection.NET has run a native Windows Media Series network since September 2002 (see our press releases for details). With Microsoft’s release of Windows Media 11, Advection.NET customers continue to count on Advection.NET’s expertise with the latest Windows Media technologies, including the the new WMP 11 player, and full support of Windows Media for portable devices.
To you sell video online, we offer a hosted VOD store for modern browsers like Chrome, Safari, IE and Firefox, as well as embedded stores for Windows Media Player and Windows Media Center Editions. We provide an e-commerce video sales platform complete with admin tools, content management, integration with rock solid payment processing, and Microsoft’s Digital Rights Management (DRM), so you don’t have to spend time developing your own solution.
