“Being able to launch on the Resi platform was one of the keys to our success this past year. If it had not been for the platform the ripple effect would have been massive.”
-Tim Schurrer, COO, StoryBrand
Upload once, stream to multiple destinations.
Along with ultra-reliable live streaming on your website, video content can be simulcasted in 1080p to multiple destinations including Facebook, YouTube, Stream URLs for Apple TV, Roku, mobile apps and more. Video streams to all of these platforms will have the benefit of Resi reliability, and do not require any more need for bandwidth at the broadcast site.
All of Resi’s platforms are made with ease of use and automation in mind. Schedule your live streams or simulated live events to go live at fixed or recurring times, and relax knowing that your content will be streamed perfectly every time.
Highest Quality Streaming.
Resi was built by broadcast professionals who demand the best. Resi encodes video up to 12Mbps and audio up to 320Kbps, much higher than other streaming platforms. You’ll see and hear the difference.
Proactive support and monitoring.
We think it’s better to catch issues before they happen. All of Resi’s platforms provide proactive monitoring and reports, including full email and phone support – even on weekends. This means that if anything happens that could cause a concern for your stream, our Support team will work with you to resolve it – and we’re available to answer any questions you have in the meantime.
Web Live Streaming
Ultra-reliable simultaneous live streaming to your website, Facebook, YouTube and more.
Live and simulated playback - cloud transcoding/ABS.
Smooth streaming over any connection.
Zero-loss point-to-point transmission from one to many physical locations — even in the case of a complete internet outage.
Dual-channel SDI/HDMI - Live/DVR playback.
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?
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.
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.
- If multisite, also select hardware decoder(s).
- Select your service plan (after checkout) – several options are available depending on your audience size and streaming needs.
- Start streaming!
