TAG Video Systems adds support for CMAF
TAG Video Systems, a creator of “100% SW, 100% IP, 100% COTS/Cloud”, probing, monitoring and multiviewing solutions for live production, playout, delivery and OTT, has announced support for an additional streaming format: Common Media Application Format (CMAF). According to the company, this will allow OTT customers to take advantage of more diverse platforms, simplified workflows, lower latency and reduced cost.
The Common Media Application Format (CMAF), the result of a collaboration between Microsoft and Apple, is an open, extensible standard that enables efficient streaming over the HLS and MPEG-DASH protocols. TAG also added support for Microsoft Smooth Streaming, a legacy hybrid media delivery method that acts like streaming but is based on HTTP progressive download.
