Wired Recap: Axis Communications Talks Security Grade Cams for Streaming

Posted by Laura Duerring on Dec 4, 2017 3:23:57 PM

This week on Wired, Axis Communications joined host Jeff Adams and StreamSpot ops manager Ryan Campbell to talk about the benefits of utilizing security-grade cameras for streaming in your venue. Axis invented the world’s first network camera in 1996 and is the market leader in network video. It's not surprising that security and streaming share the same requirements of reliable, built-to-last cameras, making the synergy of surveillance cameras for live streaming so dynamic. 

Axis Product Manager Steve Burdet gave great insight into the most important factors to consider when deciding if a network camera for streaming is best for your venue and needs and ran through the features of the new M5525-E models that will be hitting the market soon.

Streaming Bundles... Who'da thunk it?

Posted by Brian Duerring on Apr 5, 2017 5:05:19 PM


Who would want a "Streaming Bundle?"

When StreamSpot opened its doors in 2010, we knew that our streaming solutions had to be turn-key.  If customers were forced to research, purchase and configure individual pieces of equipment for their streaming solutions,  they wouldn't do it (or wouldn't WANT to do it :). Starting with our very first customer, we offered everything needed to produce high-quality live broadcasts in one convenient package.  

While our turn-key bundles have evolved through the years, the concept remains the same.  Provide a high quality encoder (the device that processes the audio and video signals and sends them to your streaming provider), reliable cameras and capture devices... Pre-configure the equipment to each customer's account and ship it to each customer.  All StreamSpot equipment bundles ship with easy-to-follow setup instructions and our support team works with each customer remotely.  In the rare event that an installation is too challenging, StreamSpot has partnered with integrators across the country that can come onsite and install everything for you... Now that's simple!
