Exceptional Viewer Experience

The figure below depicts the delivery of StreamShark live streams to Standard Viewers vs. Viewers with Hive.

The contribution feed is pushed to an Event created in StreamShark. Upon going live, the feed is shown on StreamShark’s video player with the live feed delivered via StreamShark multi-CDN to viewers. For clusters of viewers on the corporate network, Hive WebRTC (requires no software installation) or the installed Hive client/browser plugin select which viewers download from the CDN and effectively use their devices as distribution nodes.

StreamShark sees efficiency gains up to 90% (i.e. percentage of traffic delivered over P2P vs. the CDN/Internet) with enterprise customers that have elected to enable this feature. Regardless of the device type or browser, StreamShark gracefully falls back to deliver the best possible experience and insights for viewers, from desktop to mobile. The StreamShark video player reports the Hive Insights back into the platform for users to review key QoE metrics.
