Overall Satisfaction with IBM Watson Media's Video Streaming

Once a year the school hosts a sporting event that attracts a large number of people. Basketball and Soccer games are played simultaneously at two different venues on campus. Some families may have more than one child participating in either event. We were tasked with providing a way to allow anyone the ability to watch a live stream on their mobile device or computer while behind a password-protected website. USTREAM has been our go-to solution to make the live stream possible. It has also opened new avenues in terms of getting content delivered to more faculty, staff, and students for other events, including special guest speakers and schoolwide announcements.

Pros

  • Simple to use with easy configuration, setup, and integration.
  • Allows for multiple channels with independent URLs.
  • Low latency, less than 10-15 sec lag in some cases.
  • Recording capabilities and management of recordings.

Cons

  • It's a cloud-based product, which has more latency than on-premises.
USTREAM has given us the ability to securely stream live sporting events to our school community on their mobile devices or computers while behind a password-protected website. The audience varies in size based on the event, and USTREAM's service has been reliable across all platforms and device types.
We have not yet ventured into the metrics.
It's well suited for multiple streams of input, and local and remote access.
