iOS Streaming Solution
With Akamai HD for iPhone & iPad, you can send both live and on-demand audio and video content over HTTP for playback on Apple devices such as iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch.
In a typical video production configuration, a video encoder is used to produce H.264 (mpeg-4) audio-video files appropriate for delivery via Flash players online and compliant with Apple's recommended profiles. Apple requires that live and on-demand H.264 content be packaged to mpeg-2 format and then segmented into smaller chunks for delivery to mobile iOS devices. These steps can add complexity to the encoding workflow, can delay the availability of content for viewers, and necessitate additional investments in hardware and infrastructure.
