SAN FRANCISCO, April 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- [Microsoft Build 2015] — Equilibrium (http://www.equilibrium.com), the world's leading enterprise content-management and automated mobile media-delivery company, announced today the unveiling of its MediaRich Server 4.0 in the Microsoft Azure marketplace. Customers can now instantly deploy a complete, MediaRich, all-media server simply through their Azure hosting accounts, giving Web, app, .NET and content infrastructure developers the latest version of the leading engine for automating and tracking content preparation and delivery.
MediaRich Server is already delivering hundreds of millions of assets for thousands of customers every day, with support for over 450 file types. MediaRich can process nearly any size asset, from complex architectural drawings and PhotoShop images to raw camera files and 4K videos. Customers can instantly host a MediaRich Server as a pre-configured virtual machine, cutting down installation and deployment time. Within Azure, MediaRich can be deployed as a single server or as a cluster of hundreds of servers to enable burst-processing of thousands or millions of content files for high-volume transformation applications, including ingestion from any location (FTP, http, SMB mount, UNC path, S3 storage, etc.) to any destination with full metadata extraction and embedding support.
MediaRich's patented, dynamic cache management enables Web imaging for e-tailers, including the powerful UniZoom™ viewer and other custom .NET, C#, COM, Java and Web service applications which require dedicated servers with 5/9's reliability. With MediaRich Server 4 hosted 24/7 on the Azure Cloud, customers can now easily deliver assets, including 4K video, in all of the required formats to their websites, e-tail portals or mobile apps on the fly.
Chris Duke, the vice president of product at Equilibrium, stated, "While we have supported cloud-based hosting for some time, the move to the marketplace-hosted virtual machine for MediaRich makes it more accessible and quicker to deploy for all of our customers. They get all the power of MediaRich, but they now have the speed and security of the Azure infrastructure."
MediaRich All Media Servers will be available in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace in May 2015.
