What is Adobe Media Server Professional?
Adobe® Media Server 5 Professional software, when combined with Adobe Access 4 software, streams protected, studio-grade content using a single digital rights management (DRM) workflow across desktops, connected TVs, tablets, and smartphones, including iOS and Android™ devices. Target larger audiences, improve quality, and reduce costs with a simple workflow.
On-demand packaging for HTTP
Deliver video using HTTP for Adobe Flash® Player compatible and iOS devices without preparing the assets ahead of time. On-demand packaging makes publishing easier by requiring one set of video files to deliver to multiple devices with or without Flash Player installed.
Reduce delivery costs and infrastructure for massive-scale live media delivery over internal and public networks using P2P technology built into Flash Player.
HLS file format for iOS, with adaptive bitrate support
Enjoy support for HTTP Live Streaming (HLS), the format for iOS, inside the Safari browser and within apps, including Adobe AIR® for iOS. HLS support includes adaptive bitrate for both live video and video on demand (VOD), and also supports content protection with Adobe Access software.
HTTP origin services
Stream your media to all devices from a high-performance, built-in HTTP server built on Apache.
Robust media origin services
Control your media publishing workflows, add redundancy, control access and protection, manage QoS, access advanced video player features, and leverage cloud services by operating your own media origin for both Flash Player and iOS HTTP streaming.
Studio-grade DRM packaging
Package content for a single digital rights management (DRM) workflow that targets the desktop, connected TVs, tablets, and smartphones, including iOS and Android platforms, when you include Adobe Access 4 software (available separately).
Protected HTTP streaming for Apple iOS
Expand your audience to include iOS devices with HTTP Live Streaming (HLS). Using the same media and live streams used for playback in Flash Player, you can deliver and protect full adaptive bitrate experiences to iOS devices as well as HTML5 browsers.
Protected HTTP streaming for Flash Player
Protect and monetize your HD video with easy-to-use content protection built on Adobe Access software, with no additional DRM license servers. Add massive scale and robust protection to your media assets or live streams.

Advanced disk management for HTTP

Multiprotocol manifest generator tools
Generate manifest files more easily and with fewer errors with new tools that eliminate the need to manually create F4M and M3u8 files for live and VOD delivery to a variety of devices.
Live streaming with DVR and time shifting
Spend more time with live video events and give the viewer control over your live stream with pause and seek backwards, instant replay, or play from start with robust server DVR support for RTMP, HTTP Dynamic Streaming, and HLS for iOS.
