Streaming server upgrades and maintenance

Our streaming services will be offline for approximately 1 hour on Monday, August 10th, beginning at 3pm MT (GMT -6) for upgrades to our streaming servers and video players.  Because our customers are global this maintenance time affects the least amount of our viewers.  If there is a large event that you are expecting during that time (like another Hawaii hurricane!) please let us know and we’ll reschedule.

In the coming weeks after this upgrade is complete you will have these options for your video and radio players:

  • Stream recording:  This service will automatically archive your live stream on our servers for later viewing (or listening in the case of our Radio streamers) and downloading, like a DVR and/or Video Security system.  So you’ll be able to go back in time to see what happened yesterday, last week, or last month on your live stream. This  storage option will be available for web camera streaming, live video, and radio station customers alike.
  • Pre-roll Video:  This will give you the ability to login to our control panel and upload a video or audio file that will run prior to your live stream.  This will allow you to display ads or informational videos prior to your live stream.  This service will be available for all video and radio streaming customers.
  • Email a snapshot:  Users will be able to click a button on your live video player to take a snapshot of the current video and email it to whomever they like with a personalized email and your company’s tag line included.   Email addresses will be automatically collected and provided to you.  This service will be available to web camera customers with Axis cameras only.
  • Automatic Time-lapse: Our servers will take a snap shot every 15 minutes from your camera and store these images on our servers, then we’ll provide you with simple javascript embed code so that you can place this time-lapse video on any page of any web site.  In beta testing these timeless have been spectacular, even with PTZ cameras.  This service will be available to web camera customers with Axis cameras only.

We haven’t finalized pricing on these services (some may be free, or some may use freemium approach, some may cost) but I can assure you that just like our existing streaming services these prices will be the best prices on the internet!

Feel free to ask questions.

Thank you for your business!
