Cloud Live

An all-in-one solution for live streaming

Cloud Live is a revolutionary all-in-one live streaming solution from CDNetworks that offers unparalleled features for stream ingesting, processing, and delivery. Based on CDNetworks’ industry-leading content delivery network (CDN) and powerful media-processing capabilities, Cloud Live delivers a seamless, high-speed, and low-latency streaming experience — from flexible stream ingesting to live stream playback — on a wide variety of devices.

Cloud Live is ideally suited for a myriad of live streaming scenarios, including enterprise conferences, online education courses, concerts, and sporting events. Instead of investing time and money to build your own live streaming infrastructures, you now have the power to share live content directly with your global audiences at any scale using our cloud-based platform. Coupled with CDNetworks’ native CDN network, the resulting synergy dramatically reduces video latency, improves the viewing experience, and leads to increased user engagement and stickiness that deepen relationships with customers over time and drive customers to your content more often.

How it Works

In addition to integrating media-processing capabilities with CDN distribution, Cloud Live provides a portal for managing content streams. Using the Cloud Live portal, you can create as many streams as you need prior to live streaming. Then, when you’re ready to stream, simply copy and paste a URL to push the stream in an encoder, and then start streaming. Cloud Live also integrates features such as a dedicated monitoring page, a sharing page, and adaptive code for diverse application and management.
