What was your challenge to offer Live Broadcasting?

In our quest to disseminate live content via satellite broadcast, we encountered a significant hurdle: the inability to install satellite dishes in certain regions. This necessitated the exploration of a terrestrial network-based distribution solution. By adopting Ant Media’s low-latency streaming solution, Comunica can avoid severe delays and disruptions in content delivery, losing viewer engagement and potential revenue. Additionally, failing to address these challenges could result in an inability to meet client expectations and a compromised competitive edge in the industry. Implementing Ant Media’s solution ensured seamless, high-quality broadcasts, maintaining their reputation and market position.

Why did you choose Ant Media Server?

After thorough deliberation, we turned to Ant Media Server to address our pressing need for a reliable and low-latency streaming solution. Traditional streaming methods fell short, plagued by variable and high latency issues, making synchronization with satellite broadcast channels unfeasible. Ant Media’s robust infrastructure promised to deliver the seamless, synchronized results we have been looking for.
