Peer-to-peer live streaming technology
With the use of webinars and webcasts you can reach thousands of employees all over the world. But if all these employees watch a live webinar or webcast at the same time via an internal network, you have to have the capacity and the bandwidth to facilitate a smooth connection. If not enough is available, chances are the image quality is low or there is no image available at all. This is common problem within organizations is called a ‘spike’ or a ‘peak’ due to the strain on the network. Thanks to the launch of the new peer-to-peer live streaming technology created by Company Webcast these issues are now a thing of the past. Watch the video with a comprehensive explanation of this technology by our experts below:
Webcasts and webinars for internal communication
Large organisations can have thousands of employees stationed all over the world. If there is an important or a periodic update that needs to be released, of if a large group of employees need to undergo a training, it is important that these employees receive this information at the same time. A webinar or webcast is an excellent means of communication to reach all these employees simultaneously.
Broadcasts sent via webcasts and webinars require a great capacity of the internal network. If hundreds of employees want to watch the same video and capacity is low or not sufficient, you might need to sacrifice the image quality. Worst case scenario: there is no image available at all. The internet connection is not strong enough to process such a peak in demand. This ‘peak’ or ‘spike’ is a serious problem for some organisations.
Thanks to the peer-to-peer technology these issues can now be solved. The peer-to-peer technology allows all employees to watch a webinar or webcast at the same time without overloading the internal network. This technology is accessible for every company and organisation. Help from the IT department is not needed.
