About Ant Media
But our purpose extends beyond the technical. It’s a journey of finding life’s meaning. I’ve discovered that titles, cars, money, winning, and striving to be the best don’t fulfill me. Even leaving behind an inspiring body of work doesn’t fully resonate with my purpose. Instead, I’ve found a deeper meaning in building something significant with Ant Media. Surprisingly, it’s not about me – it’s about you. That’s why this About Us page exists, and I hope it allows us to become friends and partners in this endeavor.
Our Purpose(Hearts) - Why?
Our purpose is to democratize live streaming, making interactivity (video, audio, data) as mainstream as websites are today. We aim to simplify the complex and technical process of streaming, ensuring anyone with a story to tell can do so without barriers. This purpose improves communication between people, making the world a better place through online meetings, e-learning, interactivity, fun, commercials, IoT, telehealth, and more.
Our deeper purpose is to demonstrate that people who focus on the same goal – no matter their location or background – can collaborate and create something with a positive, significant impact on the world. We hope to inspire you and others to take proactive action, without waiting for or blaming anything. We believe that this inspiration can make the world a better place in all aspects.
Our purpose aims to connect hearts, and we believe the minds must find their own answers. We hope our purpose resonates with you, and that we share a mindset. Now, let’s address the minds through our values.
Our Values(Minds) - How?
- Transparency: Everything should be clear and transparent, including financials, salaries, roadmaps, issues, bugs, and communication.
- Win-Win: Foster win-win relationships in both financial and emotional terms with colleagues, community, users, developers, partners, and the ecosystem.
- Fun: Friends have fun together. We should spend more time together and find more ways to enjoy ourselves.
- Make it Better: Focus on the goal and provide a solution. Perfection isn’t necessary, just strive to make it better with each iteration, as with Ant Media Server.
- Challenge: Life becomes exciting when we embrace challenges, just like the goal outlined below.
- KISS: Keep it Simple and Stupid, a timeless principle we uphold.
Our Goal - What?
We aim to enable developers, users, partners to sell their plugins, applications, projects, services on top of Ant Media Server to address user needs through the Ant Media Marketplace.
Our manifesto is a collection of guiding principles and behaviors that define who we are and how we work:
- Aim for exponential growth, think about how to achieve 10x, 100x advancements.
- Understand the core of what you’re doing, helping, saying. Don’t skim the surface of the problem; dive deep into it.
- Walk the journey with our users, understanding their needs and perspectives.
- Genuinely strive to assist people in resolving their issues or fulfilling their needs. Engage with each user as if they were a trusted friend whom you are eager to help
- Exhibit empathy: constantly ask yourself, ‘If I were the user, would I be satisfied with the solution I’m providing?
- Win hearts and minds
- Dedicate at least 20 minutes every day to self-improvement. Read a book, watch a video, learn something new.
- Celebrate successes and learn from failures as a team.
- Always seek win-win relationships. If a user can’t afford a license, let’s find alternative win-win solutions.
