TikiLIVE Offers Adaptive Bitrate Streaming for Video-On-Demand (VOD) for Roku Set-Top Boxes

MARATHON, Fla., Jan. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- TikiLIVE now offers Adaptive Bitrate Streaming for Video-On-Demand (VOD) accessed from Roku set-top boxes. With adaptive bitrate streaming, TikiLIVE starts at the lowest bitrate first which minimizes loading time and continually adjusts to the viewer's internet connection to limit buffering and unexpected skipping. Adaptive streaming automatically senses changes in the stream that's delivered so when the internet speed drops, the stream is not interrupted to ensure the viewer a smooth and pleasant experience. Roku, the best-selling streaming player, easily connects to a television and wireless network to bring entertainment choices to homes and businesses. Subscribers can watch TikiLIVE channels and content on their televisions from all over the world.

"With Roku, our TikiLIVE broadcasters can stream both live and VOD content to the nearly 8 million Roku set-top boxes," said Tim Green, Chief Technology Officer of Eyepartner.  "With adaptive streaming, TikiLIVE creates a reliable VOD experience."

Adaptive bitrate streaming is easily encoded with the built-in Monster Encoder software, which converts all popular video types (including AVI, MOV, WMV, etc.) into HTML5 so users can publish them as Videos on Demand. After encoding, users only need to enable for Roku.

The TikiLIVE platform allows broadcasters to publish and manage LIVE content as well as VOD to Roku channels quickly and easily. No proprietary equipment or advanced training is needed. Broadcasters can create unlimited channel playlists and publish them to ROKU channels. The platform also allows pay-per-view and subscription user authentication as well as the ability to create themed channels.
