Microsoft's Azure Media Services has been a go-to for many when it comes to encoding, storing, and streaming video content. It has provided a trusted cloud platform that supports on-demand and live streaming services suitable for businesses of all sizes. Its shutdown on June 30, 2024, is the opportunity to discover and migrate to a platform that aligns with the future of video streaming and hosting. That's where Backscreen steps in. 

As you face this transition, you might be concerned about migrating your content securely, ensuring zero downtime, and finding a service with comparable or better features. We've been there, and that's why Backscreen is committed to making your migration as seamless as possible.
