IT system vendor Dell Technologies has gone to EasyBroadcast, a provider of end-to-end streaming technology for enterprises based in Nantes, France, for an OTT package to broadcast its live events and other corporate content across its EMEA division.
“We needed to be able to stream our events worldwide with exceptional quality and without being limited by bandwidth constraints,” said Pascal Nuger, event manager at Dell EMEA. “EasyBroadcast’s solution extends our reach, allowing us to stream content with superior video quality, less buffering and latency, and increased bandwidth efficiency.”
EasyBroadcast’s package makes it easier for Dell EMEA to manage and deliver web conferences, speeches, and corporate events addressing employees, customers, and partners. Its dashboard with real-time analytics, monitoring, and alerts provides Dell with actionable insights to improve quality of service (QoS) and quality of experience (QoE) for viewers.
The package combines a standard client-server model and a VAD broadcasting model, where each computer acts as a distribution server as soon as it receives a piece of information. Viewers are selected intelligently via geolocation and QoS matching algorithms to optimize connections, with EasyBroadcast claiming savings of up to 90% on bandwidth-related costs. By placing the video signal closer to the end user, VAD technology improves latency and ensures a better viewing experience, with the option to download and record streamed sessions.
