CDNs Content Delivery Networks

PTZOptics Android Camera Control App

PTZOptics works with all kinds of live streaming Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) for broad compatibility and integration. In general, we rely on software like Wirecast, vMix, or NewTek TriCaster to send  RTMP streams to CDNs like YouTube Live. There are so many CDNs available today, 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. Take a look at the integration videos and reviews we’ve done so far. Enjoy!

CDN Review

In this video, Paul Richards, (Business Development) and Jonathan Vineyard,  (Website Admin) review some of the top CDNs in the industry. We discuss our initial reactions to each of the eight we reviewed. We also share tons of pictures and inside information. Expect a detailed blog post soon!

Here is our PowerPoint presentation including all the 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, that’s bridging an important gap between hardware and software CDN world.

Twitch Example

We sent this live stream  to both Twitch and YouTube Live. We tested both 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) 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.
