Clipstream®

Destiny is developing a revolutionary second generation secure instant play streaming video solution which we believe will be used to power web video in the near future. Clipstream® will reach all modern browsers on all computers and devices without player plug ins or streaming servers. This will challenge the $3 billion content delivery network industry and the $1.6 billion transcoding industry.

Customers will include:

  • Advertisers who want to run video ads on other sites and in other videos
  • Market research companies doing video surveys
  • Web sites featuring video content
  • Large sites where video is a key part of their offering
  • Radio stations looking to offer automated internet radio
  • Hardware, such as internet enabled surveillance cameras
Problem Solution
There is no standard format for streaming video on the Internet.  To reach all browsers, publishers have to convert into several formats including: WebM, Ogg Theora, H.264, H.265 and Flash.  This transcoding process is costly and it means storage and data center costs are much higher. Clipstream® plays instantly on all modern browsers and devices including computers, smart phones, tablets, e-readers and Internet enabled TV's.  Viewers don't have to install or maintain plug-in player software.
None of these formats are widely adopted.  On desktops, none of the replacements for Flash reach more than 2/3 of the audience.*

*WebM: 54.32%
H.264: 63.43%
H.265: 0%
Ogg Theora: 50.22%

Adobe announced that Flash would no longer support mobile.  and Apple will not support Flash on IOS devices.

 
Because there are no plug-ins for users to maintain or upgrade, content owners will be able to reach all HTML 5 compliant browsers.
Streaming generally requires streaming servers and to reach a large audience, content delivery networks.  More than half of all data transferred on the Internet is video and video data transfer is growing t 48% per year.

Because there is no streaming server and because the content caches, Clipstream® allows publishers to host content directly on their own web servers rather than outsourcing.  HTTP caching can recycle streams allowing loads to be reduced by up to 99% for popular content.

HTML 5 video tag formats are unprotected and videos can easily be copied and shared. Clipstream® encoded videos can be watermarked and locked to only play from authorized source websites or to authorized viewer computers.
With other solutions, videos become obsolete over time, as new formats replace old ones. The new H.265 format isn't compatible with any existing web browser and is intended to phase out old videos encoded in H.264. Clipstream® encoded videos will have extreme longevity as all future web browsers will be required to be backwards compatible with the technologies behind it.
