Reliable and affordable video platform for education.
Resi is the first live streaming for education platform that can stream in high quality even through problems with the internet connection! Pricing is affordable for education and nonprofits with starter plans beginning at $79/mo.
Most reliable video streaming for schools.
Live online video provides the best engagement for classes, seminars, sporting events, and other school events. With typical live streaming platforms, packet loss on your connection will lead to buffering wheels, stuttering, and dropped frames. With Resi, real time video is saved and sent on a short delay, making sure that every frame makes it to your students or viewers perfectly.
This is where the magic happens. Resi’s cloud takes video data and ensures that all of the frames are received, so that your viewers can expect a perfect viewing experience. If it doesn’t receive all of the video perfectly, it will ask the encoder to resend what is missed.
Video data can be sent to multiple online destinations, or even other campuses or physical rooms reliably with Resi decoders.
Live video to multiple destinations.
Embed your live video into websites, learning management systems, smart TV applications, and social media channels like YouTube and Facebook Live. Video recordings of past events are also available for viewing or downloading.
Simple and automated.
Resi provides intuitive streaming for education that can be scheduled to repeat automatically. Manage streaming from encoders in multiple classrooms, meeting spaces, or events from the Resi Dashboard. Simulated Live events can also be scheduled, which will replay educational video content to viewers at the same time as if it is live, great for collaborative learning.
Know your viewers.
From the Resi dashboard, track viewer analytics on events like average watch times, locations, viewer device information, and more.
Here if you need us.
With Resi’s live streaming for education, dedicated support is available if you need us through email or phone, even on the weekends. Proactive alerts can also be set up which will notify you (and us) if there are any concerns with your streaming health.

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
Can I use multiple encoders with one plan (hardware or ProPresenter)?
Yes! Multiple encoders (whether hardware or software) can be scheduled and streamed with a single plan. If multiple encoders will be streaming at the same time, concurrent events can be added on for $49/mo.
Do you offer a free trial?
At this time, we do not offer a trial of Web Platform. However, month-to-month pricing enables organizations to use Resi with no commitment, or if you want to see an in-depth demo and ask questions before getting started, we’d encourage you to participate in a no-hassle online demo.
How much bandwidth do I need?
Resi’s platform ensures that every frame of video data makes it from encoders to decoders perfectly, even through inconsistencies in connection at the broadcast and receiving sites. However, in order to ensure that there are no delays causing data to get to the cloud within a reasonable delay, 2.5x your streaming bitrate is recommended for upload bandwidth at the broadcast site (and/or download bandwidth at receiving sites). When your connection experiences packet loss, this allows the encoder to re-send data (and/or decoders to re-download data) faster than real-time so your audience doesn’t notice a thing!
For typical resolutions, this means:
Don’t have this? Most likely you can still stream. Contact us to talk about your setup.
What happens if I go over my data?
We don't bill for overages unless you go more than 200% over your data allotment or over your data allotment for 3 consecutive months. If you do go more than 200% over your plan, it's only $25/TB (for about 1600 more views). If you are 25% above the data allocation consistently (more than 3 months), we just ask that you move up to the next plan or data allocation, and we’ll celebrate with you on your audience growth!
How do I get started?
Getting started is easy!
- Choose your streaming destinations
- Select your encoder - either by purchasing a hardware encoder or using ProPresenter.
