Live Streaming Solutions

Live streaming equipment is a big part of our offer. This guide hopes to give you an overview of these technologies and help you select the right product for the right purpose.

What is Streaming?
Very simply, streaming is broadcasting live video over the Internet. A video stream is different to a video file. A video file must finish recording before you can upload it, but a video stream continues live until you stop it.

Why is Streaming important to you?
Everyone from the largest broadcaster and media organisation, to police forces, houses of worship and gamers are streaming live to mobile devices, iPads, networked screens, computers, consoles... It’s the fastest growing part of the media industry, worth an estimated US$14 billion worldwide.

How do you Stream video?
You first need to compress the video into a size that you can reliably upload to the Internet, and to do that you either use hardware or software. If you use hardware encoders you don’t need a computer, so the equipment is smaller and can even be mounted on a camera. If you use software you still need to get the video signal into a computer, and there are boxes that do this too.
