How does live streaming work?
Live streaming lets you broadcast events in real time, as they happen, to your entire audience. Whether it's for specific events (i.e. speeches, concerts, ceremonies, church services, announcements) or a continuous 24x7 broadcast, our service makes it easy for you to
Do I need a special app? Or hardware?
Unlike other platforms where you are locked to specific apps or hardware, Frontlayer lets you stream live using any compatible RTMP encoder. All you need is an encoder, a camera, and an Internet connection. The encoder can range from basic apps which you can download for free and use in your phone or computer, to more advanced options including software and hardware based solutions. In the same way, the camera can range from a basic phone camera to a professional camera. And while all of our live streaming platform is automated, our support team is available 24x7 to help you set up your equipment or assist you with any questions you may have to fine tune the configuration based on your specific requirements.
How do my viewers watch the live stream?
Your viewers will be able to watch the live stream in your own website, in your mobile app, and also in your own TV channel on Roku and Amazon Fire TV. For web or mobile embedding, our player makes it easy for you to integrate the live stream natively in your own website, under your own domain name, and without any reference to Frontlayer. Your audience will perceive the live stream as coming directly from your own website. For TV integration, your OTT channel (Roku & Amazon Fire TV) already includes its own "LIVE Broadcast" category, where your live events are automatically available for your audience to watch directly on TV.
Are there any extra fees?
No, there are absolutely no extra fees. Our pricing structure is designed to be simple, easy to understand, and predictable. Everything you need to stream live is covered as part of the monthly package you select, and there are no additional charges. Only in the event that you decide to switch packages or to order a specific Service Add-On, your monthly price will change. You always know what you will pay per month.
Is there a time limit for live streams?
No, unlike other platforms where live streams are limited to a certain maximum duration, with Frontlayer you can stream live for as long as you want, even on a permanent basis (24x7x365). In fact many of our customers are TV networks that maintain their live streams active on a permanent basis.
How many viewers can connect to my live stream?
There are no limits to the number of simultaneous viewers who can connect to your live stream, including all supported outputs (i.e. web, mobile, TV).
How is CDN bandwidth calculated?
CDN bandwidth usage represents the amount of data that is delivered through our global network to your entire audience in order to be able to broadcast your live stream. The more users watching your live stream, or the longer these users remain connected to your live stream, more bandwidth will be required. Our monthly service plans are designed to meet and exceed the normal requirements of most customers in each segment and in terms of bandwidth usage. However, if you are not sure about your bandwidth requirements or if you would like us to assist you in estimating this variable more specifically, don't hesitate to Contact Us and we'll be glad to help.
