How Livepeer Studio Enables the Next Generation of Video Streaming

Video streaming is one of the most influential and fast paced industries of our time..When researchers designed the Internet in the 1960s as a tool for information sharing within the research community, they did not consider it may become the backbone of the future of television and video consumption.  This transformation from a simple information-sharing platform to the central hub of global entertainment and communication required tremendous technical iteration and innovation. 

Many companies have worked within the constraints of existing internet technologies to enable reliable video streaming on the Internet, but still,  only a fraction of global audiences can watch streaming video because of technical limitations. With the expected surge in internet-enabled content consumption against today’s uncertain economy, innovators and platforms need better, faster, and more cost-effective solutions. We created Livepeer Studio to address this challenge. 

A Cutting-edge Strategy for the Video Industry

Legacy video streaming models have long been a burden to many streaming service providers and creators  due to their complexity, high costs, and reliance on singular vendors.

Today’s high infrastructure costs have created a daunting hurdle for emerging video startups. These companies often experience a period of rapid growth in user count, only to be confronted with exorbitant streaming bills long before they have the chance to establish a sustainable business model. This financial strain forces video-enabled businesses into tough positions, having to monetize through less desirable means such as selling user data, inundating use experience with advertisements, or shutting down.

However, the demand for video streaming services remains steady and skyrocketing, driven by technological advancements such as 4K video, ultra-HD, VR streaming, and the significant trend of cord-cutting shifting broadcast content to online platforms. This increasing demand places an even greater strain on an already burdened infrastructure, highlighting the urgent need for innovation and evolution in how video streaming is powered and delivered.

Livepeer Studio's approach is a disruption that promises to dismantle the barriers to entry. Using an open source marketplace-based approach that forms a robust infrastructure from the ground up,, we've developed an API-first streaming infrastructure to enable companies to build their video business without the burden of cost and operational complexity.
