Windows Media and Microsoft Netshow streaming video encoding
Windows Media (formerly Microsoft NetShow) Streaming Video For Websites & Corporate Intranets

Microsoft NetShow, or Windows Media as Microsoft now calls it, can allow you to stream video on demand and across the Web or a Corporate Intranet. For purposes of our discussion of Widnows Media, our focus is on how we can enable you to add streaming video to your website easily and inexpensively using the Windows Media format. We are Windows Media producers and can handle any Windows Media - Microsoft NetShow encoding job.

Making Windows Media - Microsoft NetShow Streaming Video Inexpensive And Easy To Use

Gaining the benefits of broadcast media on your website or Corporate Intranet can be as easy and inexpensive as your like, or more difficult and expensive than you ever imagined. If you choose CyberTech as your Windows Media - Microsoft NetShow producer, we make the process simple and as inexpensive as $40 per video clip you have us digitize. Unless you have the need for hundreds or thousands of video clips to be digitized each and every year, your investment in new equipment and product training will exceed $10,000 per year if you'd like to produce streaming video on your own.

Depending upon the volume of simultaneous video streams you'd like to broadcast, you may not even need a dedicated video server or even one of Microsoft's software server packages. On our own website for example, we don't use a dedicated video server or any of the Microsoft server software systems to stream our videos. Please feel free to call us at 630-690-7611 if you'd like to discuss whether you can use the Windows Media - Microsoft NetShow format without any additional hardware or software.

The Windows Media - NetShow format is probably the most complex of the streaming video formats available in that it allows codec independence. Unless you're into audio and video in a very big way, these technical aspects which differentiate the Windows Media - NetShow format from both Real Video and Vivo aren't of much interest.

Technology Improvements & Upgrade Price Protection

Real Video and Windows Media are constantly improving the quality of their streaming video encoding and player products. Real Networks, for example is now in their 8th version and Windows Media is in their 7th version in only 5 years. Over time, this has resulted in higher quality audio and video. At some point in the future, you may want your videos re-encoded using newer technology which delivers higher quality playback. To protect our customers from the high cost of having us re-encode their videos, and to insure that our customers can always have state of the art streaming video available on their sites, we guarantee to re-encode your original videos using the latest technology available at 50% of what you originally paid. This offer applies only to the original videos we encoded, using the same format and same speed selections and is good for five years from the date of your original order. CyberTech Media was the first company in the streaming media industry, and to the best of our knowledge, we're still the only company to offer this protection to our customers.
