Technology Overview
VideoReady empowers you with state-of-the-art technology in all corners of the platform. We will continue to strive to push the boundaries so that you can provide your audience with the best experience possible.

Hosting/CDN Distribution
VideoReady is tightly integrated with world-wide Content Distribution Networks, equipped to handle HD quality video and ensuring maximum end-user viewing performance.

VideoReady can also integrate with your own CDN accounts if you want to use your own CDNs instead of using the VideoReady defaults.
Silverlight is the next-generation Rich Internet Application technology from Microsoft and VideoReady is committed to bringing you the full potential of this technology. The VideoReady studio is built in Silverlight and our video players fully support Silverlight embedded media players. Our video players also support Flash and Quicktime.
Smooth HD Streaming
Smooth Streaming dynamically detects local bandwidth and CPU conditions and seamlessly switches, in near real time, the video quality of a media file that a player receives. Consumers with high-bandwidth connections can experience high definition (HD) quality streaming while others with lower bandwidth speeds receive the appropriate stream for their connectivity, allowing consumers across the board to enjoy a compelling, uninterrupted streaming experience and alleviating the need for media companies to cater to the lowest common denominator quality level within their audience base.
With FluxDVD you can convert your DVDs into the FluxDVD format, which is an online DVD video format which can be played back and experienced the exact same way as your normal DVD in Windows Media Player. All menus and interaction features stays intact. It can also be protected with DRM. VideoReady has full support for the FluxDVD format. See for more information.
