Every organization is different. Because there are many variables involved with live streaming and distribution, we like to connect one-on-one to get to know you and provide you with recommendations to fit your specific needs.
No matter if you’re just getting started or you have an audience with millions of viewers, we’ll work with you to find the best options with the highest value for you.
Hear From Our Customers
Organizations of all types trust Resi.
“Partnering with Resi has made all the difference in the world for us … we’ve served tens of thousands of customers virtually and couldn’t have done it without the team at Resi.”
-Tim Schurrer, COO, Storybrand
“Using [Resi] has allowed me to concentrate on the audience experience rather than worry about a dish, signal, redundant testing, etc. I appreciated that it was very much plug-n-play, and I know that we will continue to use Resi for every event going forward.”
-John Jones, Supervisor of Training & Development, Toyota Industrial Equipment
“It just works. The reliability has been amazing, and the tickets that we receive of ‘hey, this buffered,’ or ‘hey, this went down’ has been greatly reduced. It’s just opened us up to saying, if it really is this easy to stream to all these platforms, I think we’re just in the beginning phases of getting a wide a net as possible with our online services.”
-Frank Grand, Web Director, Newspring Church

Get started with ProPresenter Stream!
Resi’s ProPresenter Stream plugin pairs the power of Resi’s Live Stream Platform with the flexibility of Renewed Vision’s ProPresenter. For the first time, you can stream high-quality, ultra-resilient content with Resi even through internet disruptions – on your own hardware! Simulcast to multiple destinations at once, including your website, social media, mobile apps, TV apps, and more.
How is Resi different from other streaming providers?
There are a few reasons:
Resi’s technology enables more reliable streaming, which leads to less buffering wheels, which leads to more engagement and an exponentially larger audience over time. Resi is the only streaming provider that is able to guarantee 100% content integrity in the cloud (even through internet disruptions) by checking and re-sending data from the encoder through the Resilient Streaming Protocol (RSP). See a comparison and learn more about RSP.
Resi’s reliability is also guaranteed by our unique cloud infrastructure – rather than relying on dedicated servers, we use groundbreaking scalable cloud distribution methods that are not affected by drastic increases in traffic like other streaming providers. This means that no matter how much traffic streams may receive, Resi’s technology is able to scale dynamically to meet the need with no problems.
Additionally, Resi is built to be an enterprise-level solution, while also being remarkably easy to use. Streams can be started with a single click or automated on a schedule. The system will also monitor your stream and will notify you if it ever detects any concerns (and our helpful Support team is standing by too).
What is an encoder? Why do I need one?
An encoder is a device, whether hardware or software, that will take a video input from a source (such as a camera or switcher) and send it to the cloud for distribution and viewing. Most utilize unreliable protocols which send video data to the cloud like a laser beam, resulting in buffering, glitching, and dropped frames due to even minimal packet loss.
Resi is the first system that can provide 100% video delivery without interruptions. To do this, we take advantage of the Resilient Streaming Protocol, which unlike RTMP or other protocols such as SRT or Zixi, takes advantage of a local cache in order to check and re-send data until video content is verified as perfect. This is what makes Resi unique and is only available through Resi’s hardware encoders or ProPresenter Stream encoder.
What is included in a Resi service plan?
A Resi service plan includes:
- Streaming data transfer through Resi’s cloud CDN and cloud storage
- Continuous service and software feature additions and improvements – we release new things often, and we never charge for updates.
- Phone and email support, even on weekends – we’re here if you need us
How much bandwidth do I need to stream?
Resi’s platform ensures that every frame of video data makes it to viewers before they see it, resulting in a perfect viewing experience without buffering even if the connection at the broadcast site is inconsistent. However, in order to ensure that there are no delays causing data to get to the cloud within the RSP backup cache, 2.5x your bitrate is recommended for upload bandwidth at the broadcast site. When your connection experiences packet loss, this allows the encoder to re-send data to the cloud faster than real-time so your viewers don’t notice a thing!
For typical resolutions, this means:
Don’t have this? You still may be able to stream. Contact us to talk about your setup.
What happens if I go over my bandwidth?
We don’t bill for overages unless you go more than double your data allotment or 25% over your data allotment for 3 consecutive months. If you exceed these levels the rate is $100 per TB (about 1600 viewers). If you are 25% above consistently (more than 3 months), we just ask that you move up to the next plan or data tier, and we’ll celebrate with you on your audience growth!
What is the delay of Resi streams?
Resi is built to provide an enterprise-level broadcast experience without the cost of dedicated connections and expensive IT infrastructure. This means that now, any organization can have the same quality and reliability previously only available to big corporations and sports teams, even on public internet connections.
In order to do this, Resi’s platforms take advantage of a short delay in order to check and re-send data until it is verified as perfect by the destination, something only possible through Resi’s Resilient Streaming Protocol. For Live Stream Platform, this delay is typically around 90 seconds, or 2 minutes to social platforms.
We understand that low latency is important, and we have built our systems on ultra-fast transcoding technology in order to provide highly resilient streaming at the lowest delay possible, which we are working to reduce over time. For most, the tradeoff of a short delay is worth not losing viewers because of buffering wheels and stream disruptions!
How do I get started?
