Quality and Professionalism every step of the way!
Thom Sivo Photographer at Thom Sivo Photography
on 8/5/18
From the initial moment of meeting the team at Stream9, I knew I was dealing with the right company. As a photographer, I had specific ideas in mind for my website. The team at Stream9 understood completely what I was envisioning. From our first meeting to taking my new website live was absolutely seamless! The team at Stream9 made me a part of the process throughout. Their ideas and recommendations were spot on resulting in a website I can brag about. I will never go anywhere else for my website needs. I have actually referred several other companies to Stream9 since the creation of my website. Each of those companies referred also went with Stream9. Outstanding company!

 Streaming is the data transfer process used when someone views video content on the Internet. It is a means of delivering a video file format, often from a distant storage location, a little section at a time. Client devices do not need to download the whole video before playing it. Streaming takes place by transferring only a few seconds of the clip at a time over the internet.Live streaming is a technology that helps you to stream high-quality live content directly from your website or online service directly to the end-user in real-time without being previously recorded or stored. Usually, the term live streaming applies to one-to-many feeds that go out at once to multiple users. Instead of the protocols used for one-to-many live-stream transmissions, video conferencing systems such as Skype, FaceTime and Google Hangouts Meet work on real-time connectivity (RTC) protocols.How does live streaming work? The steps that go into live streaming on the technical side are:Video CapturingSegmentationCompression & EncodingCDN Distribution & CatchingDecoding & PlaybackVideo CapturingThe process starts with capturing the raw data in video form. The processor on which the data is being captured converts the recorded information into a binary form that is 0’s and 1’s. In other words, the raw data is converted into machine language for its digital processing.SegmentationUnlike, other file formats transmitting video content take longer hence it needs to be segmented into smaller frames to be sent over the internet one frame at a time.Compression & encodingAfter segmentation, the video is compressed to prevent the rendering of redundant data. For instance, the background of the video is consistent hence it only needs to be rendered once. Next, the process of encoding data is converted into various digital formats such as HEVC, VP9, etc., for making it compatible with multiple devices. CDN distribution & catchingA CDN is a distributed server network that caches and serves content on behalf of a server of origin. As user requests no longer have to go all the way to the origin node, but can instead be managed by a nearby CDN server, using CDN results in better performance.A CDN stores every part of the live stream briefly saved, so most viewers will get the live stream from the CDN cache instead of from the origin server. Even if the cached data is a few seconds behind, this simply brings the live stream closer to real-time so it cuts down on round-trip time (RTT) to and from the origin node.Decoding & PlaybackThe segmented video data is received, decoded, and decompressed by any user's computer. Finally, the data is represented as visual content by a media player on the user's computer, either a dedicated app or a video player inside the browser, and the video plays.Nowadays, there are tons of different online live streaming options available online. When you're choosing an app, make sure that it will serve its purpose.

Live streaming is a technology that helps you to stream high-quality live content directly from your website or online service directly to the end-user in real-time without being previously recorded or stored. 

Usually, the term live streaming applies to one-to-many feeds that go out at once to multiple users. Instead of the protocols used for one-to-many live-stream transmissions, video conferencing systems such as Skype, FaceTime and Google Hangouts Meet work on real-time connectivity (RTC) protocols.

How does live streaming work? 

The steps that go into live streaming on the technical side are:

  • Video Capturing
  • Segmentation
  • Compression & Encoding
  • CDN Distribution & Catching
  • Decoding & Playback

Video Capturing

The process starts with capturing the raw data in video form. The processor on which the data is being captured converts the recorded information into a binary form that is 0’s and 1’s. In other words, the raw data is converted into machine language for its digital processing.

Segmentation

Unlike, other file formats transmitting video content take longer hence it needs to be segmented into smaller frames to be sent over the internet one frame at a time.

Compression & encoding

After segmentation, the video is compressed to prevent the rendering of redundant data. For instance, the background of the video is consistent hence it only needs to be rendered once. Next, the process of encoding data is converted into various digital formats such as HEVC, VP9, etc., for making it compatible with multiple devices. 

CDN distribution & catching

A CDN is a distributed server network that caches and serves content on behalf of a server of origin. As user requests no longer have to go all the way to the origin node, but can instead be managed by a nearby CDN server, using CDN results in better performance.

A CDN stores every part of the live stream briefly saved, so most viewers will get the live stream from the CDN cache instead of from the origin server. Even if the cached data is a few seconds behind, this simply brings the live stream closer to real-time so it cuts down on round-trip time (RTT) to and from the origin node.

Decoding & Playback

The segmented video data is received, decoded, and decompressed by any user's computer. Finally, the data is represented as visual content by a media player on the user's computer, either a dedicated app or a video player inside the browser, and the video plays.

Nowadays, there are tons of different online live streaming options available online. When you're choosing an app, make sure that it will serve its purpose.
