Media Services

Official Documentation

Service Description

The flexible and (where necessary) worldwide provision of digital content is a major strength of Microsoft Azure. This makes it possible to store and convert audio and video content and flexibly deliver it to various devices. Microsoft Azure includes Microsoft Azure Media Services, which can handle such tasks centrally, for this purpose. The provided functions include:

  • Uploading media data (that is then stored in Blob storage)
  • Coding and converting videos into various video and audio formats
  • Access protection to media data for Digital Rights Management (DRM)
  • Displaying advertising in video streams
  • Streaming videos (optimized for various devices), scheduled if necessary

As with the other Azure Services, Media Services can also work with application components that are not necessarily executed on Microsoft Azure. They can still be called via RESTful interfaces. Microsoft Azure CDN or third-party caching services can be used for optimum delivery of video content. Optimization to the consuming devices (e.g., Windows PC, Macintosh, HTML 5, iOS, Android, Windows Phone) and their respective playback options (resolution, screen size, etc.) is also possible.
