Solution Advantages
  • Self-service Application

    Includes console, API, and SDK operation modes, fulfilling quick access, clear operation process, and simple interfaces.

  • Multi-industry Coverage

    Implements Internet and mobile Internet video applications for various industries such as e-government, education, new retail, finance, tourism, and automotive.

  • Abundant Production Tools

    Lightweight tools for efficient content production, without any investment in professional hardware.

  • Security and Reliability

    Reliable content management methods with a six-layer protection mechanism to host content securely.

Business Challenges
  • Frame Freezing

    Since video streaming involves multiple parties, from live TV sources to the CDN and then to the audience, frame freezing is a possibility during video playback. Here, the key challenge is in improving the video viewing experience by tackling high concurrency in live TV sources, multi-CDN dynamic routing, and unstable streaming to the audience.

  • Delays in Live Broadcast

    Since the live broadcast process involves a series of software and hardware devices, including streaming, network, and video consumption devices as well as live broadcast software codecs, small delays are seen to be acceptable. However, delays that are too large can cause interaction and calling synchronization errors, adversely affecting user experience.

  • Serious Video Leeching

    Video leeching is an ethical, legal, and economic issue, as it infringes intellectual property rights and results in extra CDN traffic fees.

  • High Broadcast Traffic

    The use of high definition and 4K photography devices has further propelled demand for high-quality video viewing experiences, increasing pressure on network traffic and leading to higher traffic fees, often accounting for 3/4 of video broadcast costs.
