Epiphan Video - View From The Top 2016
The following is a sponsored article.
It’s an exciting time for live video streaming. This year, we’re seeing the tip of the 4K live streaming iceberg. Video on demand and OTT companies including Netflix have started offering 4K video streaming, and as a result are driving higher bandwidth support for individuals everywhere. We’re also seeing event spaces and hotels differentiating themselves by offering dedicated high-bandwidth connections, making it easier than ever before to stream high-bandwidth content. With all the uplink and downlink issues sorted out, more and more CDNs will support 4K video ingestion. And thus the 4K revolution begins. Epiphan Video is on the cutting edge of this 4K revolution with Pearl-2, our live video production system that encodes 4K video at an affordable price point today.
Parallel to this 4K trend, I also see the progression of communication and marketing through live video production by companies of all sizes, not just large enterprises with broadcast-level productions. These users want high-quality without the big-ticket price or personnel overhead. This change is largely due to offerings from Facebook, YouTube and Twitter showing everyday users that live streaming is a possibility. For these users, there is a huge gap between expensive, difficult to use professional AV gear (that they don’t own and can’t afford) and the low quality of mobile phones and web cameras (that don’t produce the quality results they want). This gap is where I see significant growth over the next year and Epiphan is positioned with Pearl-2 and our new AV.io family of video grabbers that let you use HD and 4K cameras in your live streaming events.
