Digital video software experts Omnilive have partnered with global media solutions provider Globecast to deliver cross-platform, multi-angle live streaming anywhere, anytime and on any platform or device.
Omnilive is a multi-source, latency-free live streaming video solution that allows its customers to take a different, more engaging approach to streaming content creation.
The Omnilive Software-as-as-Service (SaaS) platform delivers multimedia content and multi-camera viewpoints and lets viewers dynamically choose their viewing experience.
Omnilive’s multi-camera and multi-angle broadcasting technology provides online viewers with a unique experience and when coupled with HLS transcoding and redistribution via Globecast’s CDN services, it ensures unlimited international streaming and audience engagement.
This represents a comprehensive integrated service offered by both companies and the partnership also allows customers to better understand their audience and its behaviour via metadata collection.
Through this multi-camera and multi-angle technology, the user experience becomes more interactive and engaging.
This partnership has already been put to the test last July when an augmented hybrid livestream (with on-site and digital audiences) was set up at the Vienna Jazz Festival using multi-camera and multi-angle broadcasting.
Yann Madeleine, sales director at Globecast said: “We’re pleased to have worked with Omnilive on this festival and now more widely to offer users a unique experience for cultural events and beyond.
“This jazz festival project was far from being an experiment rather it has now evolved into a service we offer, and we’re proud to have once again proven our reliability and responsiveness when it comes to livestreaming content.”
Omnilive CEO Cyril Zajac added: “Working with Globecast is the obvious choice to ensure a premium-quality viewer experience with all-important reliability.
“Having this level of partnership with Globecast is something startups like ours greatly appreciate! Globecast has demonstrated a great deal of agility and this has allowed us to adapt our platform precisely to our customers’ needs.”
