What is Adaptive Media Delivery?

Akamai’s Adaptive Media Delivery is optimized for Adaptive Bitrate (ABR) streaming to provide a high-quality, secure viewing experience across the broad variety of network types — fixed or mobile — at varying connection speeds. Built on the Akamai Intelligent Platform, Adaptive Media Delivery provides superior scalability, reliability, availability, and reach.

The solution securely delivers prepared, pre-segmented HTTP-based live and on-demand streaming media, including support for the following video and music formats:

  • HTTP Live Streaming (HLS)
  • HTTP Dynamic Streaming (HDS)
  • Microsoft Smooth Streaming (MSS)
  • Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (MPEG-DASH)
  • Common Media Application Format (CMAF)


While Adaptive Media Delivery is both workflow- and origin storage-agnostic, Akamai’s complementary Media Services Live and NetStorage or Cloud Wrapper can be combined with Adaptive Media Delivery for an efficient, high-quality streaming media solution.
