Reliable, Scalable Live Recording

Record and Save Videos for On Demand Playback.

Did you know that 82% of viewers would prefer to watch a video live vs on-demand? While live viewing is the preference, some people may not be able to join the stream in real-time. This is where live recording for VOD playback comes in. As a government organization, press conferences, large announcements, and other live events should be broadcast in real-time.
