Keeping an Eye on Bandwidth Consumption
The main advantages of BridTV Live Stream is being able to satisfy your live streaming needs with an intuitive and fast and very easy-to-set up system. Not only that but publishers are given the options to create multiple renditions in different sizes thanks to live encoding. That’s right, BridTV’s multiple renditions are encoded straight away, hence publishers may select the preferred video quality. The video quality depends greatly on your bandwidth (as well as your Internet connection). Using BridTV Live Stream means you’re going to have to keep an eye on your bandwidth consumption or rather bandwidth stats. This data entry shows how much bandwidth your live streams have spent.
Naturally, Brid supplies publishers with an accurate report on all consumed bandwidth. Tracking bandwidth consumption at any time is seen via our main dashboard, as you log into the Brid CMS. The data provided is displayed in real-time, which is very helpful and gives you precise consumption data almost immediately. In other words, you are able to watch and know your limits, so as to formulate an adequate strategy for you to live stream your projects globally.
Bear in mind that, as the bandwidth increases, so does the video quality. Additionally, BridTV includes full-featured live stream, denoting HLS streaming protocols, which are generated on the fly. HLS is considerably more reliable, faster and a lot safer than previous video technologies. Utilizing this specifically tailored system is straightforward, and you can find the full details and how-tos here. Videos and events are streamed and recorded automatically. The video then automatically appears in the CMS as a Video-on-Demand (VOD).
