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 common problem within organisations is called a ‘spike’ or a ‘peak’ due to the strain on the network. With the launch of the peer-to-peer live streaming technology created by Company Webcast these issues are now a thing of the past. Watch the video below for a comprehensive explanation of this technology by our experts:
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, or 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 typically not strong enough to process such a peak in demand. This ‘peak’ or ‘spike’ is a serious problem for some organisations.
With peer-to-peer technology these issues can now be solved. 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, without needing help from the IT department.
Peer-to-peer technology offers:
- A reduction of the required bandwidth of up to 95%
- No software installation required: relieve the IT department and save time and money
- Flexible pricing: pay per webcast or opt for a yearly license
- Low costs: reduce the costs up to 50%
