C21 Live Cloud Monitor monitoring service has the ability to monitor multiple video or audio contents of different formats. The cloud service offers the added value of its use in different regions of the world in order to validate the quality of the reception of the streaming content, while it controls the geolocation mechanisms.
The C21 Live Cloud Monitor 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. This, as a consequence, opens a new opportunity to new encoding projects for which the investment needed 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.
- Global reach: the possibility to enable the encoding resources available in different areas of the world.
