Use Eight-Stream Output for Adaptive Bitrate Streaming

The comprehensive, reliable platform of the Cisco AS8100 Series Media Processor, formerly known as the Inlet Spinnaker HD-X / 8100, helps you stream in multiple formats to any device, including:

  • iPhones
  • iPads
  • Feature phones
  • Smart phones

The Cisco Media Processor Family leads the market in full support for adaptive bitrate (ABR) streaming. These encoders can also detect broadcast cue messages and translate critical advertisement metadata into advertisement markers appropriate for Flash and Silverlight platforms and Apple iOS devices.

Now Available: AS8100 Plus IP

This license upgrade for the AS8100 allows you to use either an IP or a serial digital interface (SDI) input source in a single appliance, increasing flexibility. For more information on this functionality, contact your Cisco sales representative, or use one of the "Let Us Help" links on the right.
