Live streaming technology
Live streaming video is a challenge in itself. Our challenge was to develop a platform similar to Zoom, but within a reasonable budget. This requires tactical innovation by discussing, analyzing, and designing before beginning the programming process.
Avoiding tunnel vision is a critical component here, as burning through a large budget and reaching a dead end is a real possibility. The client came to us with OpenVid technology, which unfortunately didn't scale the way that was required. We started working with Livekit and together we built a business plan before we started the transition to make sure it made monetary sense. Currently, the platform is capable of handling hundreds of thousands of concurrent connections.
