Streamroot aims to bring the industry a more robust, reliable and flexible streaming architecture that can scale to millions of viewers watching video content across the world.
“As video continues to grow, innovative distribution solutions are needed to both help publishers remain profitable and to keep video from ‘breaking’ the internet,” says Jeroen Wijering, creator and co-founder of JW Player, who has followed the company closely from its infancy. “Streamroot’s delivery optimization technology is a key piece of that puzzle; they have the industry-leading implementation, as well as a bright, forward-looking team.”
“We are extremely pleased that our investors have as much faith in our solution as we do,” said Pierre-Louis Theron, CEO and Co-founder at Streamroot. “On a daily basis, we handle streams with up to 50,000 simultaneous viewers and will use this capital to help the biggest broadcasters deliver high-quality content throughout the world. Next time you tune in to the Olympic Games or the Super Bowl, we want Streamroot to be powering your video.”
Streamroot is the first and leading plugin-free, peer-accelerated streaming technology leveraging WebRTC. It is designed to integrate seamlessly into broadcasters’ existing video workflow and offer total security. Streamroot already enjoys a varied customer base of live and video on-demand platforms, including tier-one media companies. The startup has allowed its clients to deliver up to 90% of their traffic using the Streamroot network, while offering faster streams and higher resolutions.
Streamroot was founded in 2014 by three engineers from Ecole Centrale Paris. Streamroot’s goal is to make high-quality, smooth video delivery available to all content publishers, and to help improve the architecture of the Internet by decentralizing web traffic. Streamroot participated in the Techstars Boston and NUMA (formerly Le Camping) accelerators and is advised by a board of video experts and successful entrepreneurs.
