Epsilon Tv is a television channel with thousands of simultaneous viewers every day. It was a big challenge for us to effectively stream its content with high quality and no downtime.
We use multiple servers which share the traffic through a load balancer. The stream content is sent via two different servers at two different locations to minimize downtime.
Video is transcoded and adjusted to devices with lower screen resolutions or weaker internet connection to improve viewer experience. Image is transmitted with 1024Kbps and sound with 96Kbps. The uptime of our service is 100% until now.
In order to stream your video live, you will need:
-The video which will be sent to the encoder which can captured by camera,file etc.
-An encoder which receives, processes and sends the video to the server.
-The Streaming server
-The Site or the url which will show your video.
You can use any RTMP encoder. The most common is the Adobe Live Encoder which is free.
Our streaming system and player are compatible with any up-to-date browser, mobile phone, tablet or PC.
If you want a High definition stream, you should have a VDSL connection with at least 5Mbit upload.
In case of a ADSL, thw best quality that you can have is the 768Kbps.
We offer a free video player which is compatible with all up-to-date browsers and can function at PC, Tablet, mobile devices.
Have your mind that a byte consists of 8 bit. The amount of data at a video is measured in bits per second. The data rate for a video file is the bitrate.
In a video that plays with 1 megabyte per second, the bitrate is 8 megabits per second (8 Mbps). The bitrate for Blu-ray HD is usually 20 Mbps, for DVD is usually 6 mbps, high quality video on the Internet, 2 mbps.
Wowza easily allows you to manage and monitor your streaming server from a browser on a computer, tablet or your phone.
The image and audio data are transmitted in real time without having to download them. A stream of data is sent to the person that watches, thats why it is called streaming.
