CDNs Content Delivery Networks

PTZOptics works with all kinds of live streaming CDN’s or Content Delivery Networks to ensure compatibility and integration. In general, PTZOptics usually relies on a software like Wirecast, vMix or a NewTek TriCaster to send a RTMP stream to CDN’s such as YouTube Live. There are so many CDN’s available today and so far we have tested: ChurchStreaming.TV, DaCast, StreamSpot, SundayStreams, TikiLive, Twitch, USTREAM, Meridix, Wowza and YouTube Live. Each CDN has it’s own benefits, strengths and weaknesses. We are currently working on a comparison chart and blog post. Until then below you will find the integration videos and reviews we have done so far. Enjoy 🙂

CDN Review

In this video, Paul Richards, Business Development and Jonathan Vineyard, website admin, review the top CDN’s available in the industry. We discuss our initial reactions to each of our 8 CDN’s reviewed. We also took tons of pictures and inside information based on our eight free trials. So expect a detailed blog post soon…

Here is our PowerPoint presentation which includes all of our screen shots taken during this CDN review. For our full review check out our blog here.

ChurchStreaming.TV

In this video, Paul Richards reviews the latest hardware solution for ChurchStreaming.TV which bridges a important gap between hardware and software CDN world.

Twitch Example

This live stream was actual sent to both Twitch and YouTube Live. We did this because Twitch only saves videos for a short period of time 14 days for free accounts and 30 days for a turbo account. Live Streaming video games and contests have become a popular use case for vMix and PTZOptics. This example shows League of Legends (one of the worlds most popular online games) being live streamed with overlays and a PTZOptics 12X-USB camera.

YouTube Live Example

In this video, Paul Richards and Patrick Kirby host the 5th episode of PTZOptics Live. This episode is a great example of live stream to YouTube Live.
