Diagnostic tools. Ensuring an easy diagnosis of the problems which might arise by reducing the downtime in case of any system failure.
High Availability. Ensures the redundancy of all components adapting to the availability needs of any customer.
Decreases the effort in the management of streaming. The intuitive centralized web interface reduces dramatically the adapting time needed by the operational management. It allows for the automation of the administrative tasks, in order to maintain the highest quality and remove the service down-times to failures or maintenance operations.
Reducing the complexity of configuration and integration processes. The unified interfaces of management (web, API,SNMP) offers the possibility of integration with third-party elements, adding intelligence to the system and enabling the reduction of costs in content management. Moreover, the centralized configuration management lowers the efforts needed when dealing with any kind of deployment, be it in the linear channels or live events.
The ease of adapting to the customer's environment according to every moment's needs. The ability to manage and integrate any element ensures the streaming platform capacity to adapt any need, in addition to reducing the investment risk and optimizing the relationship between CAPEX and OPEX.

C21 Live Control enables the management of C21 Live Cloud, offing the full power of a physical platform matched with the advantages of the cloud. Moreover, C21 Live Control is also available in C21 Live Cloud, this option allows for the use of a fully virtualized platform, providing a whole new concept of encoding for events.
The C21 Live Cloud Control service offers all the benefits of Cloud Computing applied to streaming:
- Encoding resources optimization: the option of activating only what is needed and at the same time vary the amount of encoding resources in real-time, opens as a consequence a new opportunity to new encoding projects whose inversion in would otherwise be impossible.
- CAPEX/OPEX optimization: All the integration possibilities in a mixed encoding platform (appliance, SaaS and cloud).
- Cost reduction: logistics, remote management, monitoring by region.
- Universality: the possibility to enable the encoding resources available in different areas of the world.
