We use a Content Delivery Network (CDN) with points of presence around the globe. Your video message will be easily received no matter how close or far your audience is located from you. This means that we do not use one server to send out the media to your audience, but a network of servers with excellent scalability.
Getting Started is Easy!
After you sign-up for this service, we will send you some materials that will help you get started:
- A welcome email with your streaming account user name and password. These credentials are needed to authenticate the encoder to the server.
- An encoder profile as an attachment, which will configure your encoder with the proper server connection settings.
- A special token to be placed onto your website that gennerates an embedded Live Stream Player and iOS link on the page where the token is placed.
