Winnov Enhances Cross Platform Video Compatibility with Microsoft Silverlight
Presentation capture appliance supports synchronized dual video playback for Silverlight, a world’s first
LAS VEGAS, NV. – March 5, 2008 — Winnov, LP, a leader in classroom and conference room webcasting solutions, today unveiled the Microsoft Silverlight rich media player for its Cbox 3 presentation capture appliance. Cbox 3’s Silverlight media player is the first to enable dual Windows Media Video (WMV) video streams to play simultaneously in a single browser. This breakthrough allows viewers to move, resize and manipulate both video of the presenter and the presentation regardless of operating system.
Silverlight is a cross-browser, cross-platform plug-in for delivering next generation media experiences and rich interactive applications for the web. The smooth playback and interactive capabilities enable users of Windows and Macintosh to maximize the Cbox 3 experience in any browser including Windows Internet Explorer, Firefox and Safari.
What separates the Cbox 3 Silverlight player is the ability to play two synchronized video windows within one browser. This feature, dubbed “dual video”, greatly enhances online video playback. Video windows of both the presenter and the high resolution output of a computer can be moved, resized and manipulated in ways never before seen. This enables the capture of dynamic presentations. Viewers still have access to Cbox 3’s video playback features such as on-the-fly text search, chapter selection, and multiple view choices. Additionally, now users of both Mac and Windows will be able to enjoy the same rich media experience without any loss of fidelity, video quality or functionality.
“Since 1992, Winnov has remained the key technology innovator in rich media communications and achieving dual video streams in a Silverlight environment further demonstrates Winnov’s resolve to continuously set the gold standard in the rich media streaming industry,” said Olivier Garbe, Winnov founder and CEO. “Winnov is taking advantage of the ecumenical nature of Silverlight to deliver cost effective, multi-platform streaming technology into the hands of the audience, making for a truly enriching, interactive viewing experience.”
Winnov is a leader in classroom & conference room webcasting solutions, and maker of the world’s most cost effective multi-channel IPTV encoders. Since 1992, top Universities, Fortune 500 corporations, and government agencies have relied on Winnov to capture and stream engaging rich media content.
