FPVLive.tv provides live streaming broadcasts of local events to multiple online locations. These locations include YouTube Live, YouTube Broadcast, websites including FPVLive.tv, client sites, plus other Content Delivery Networks (CDN).
Future services will include a turnkey solution for individuals and groups to stream their content from any location with an adequate internet connection.
We are constantly testing because each event poses different challenges. Some events have excellent broadband coverage where we can stream at whatever bitrate we choose. Other locations aren’t very good and we need to adjust our upload bitrates accordingly. In some cases, were there isn’t coverage at all, we need to ensure that the local recording is the best quality possible. When we fly, even in non-event situations, we are streaming to multiple locations. This allows us to review the recorded content and decide what’s working and what is not.
We broadcast every local event, not just the major ones. Having the behind the scenes setup working is just one part of producing a great broadcast. The actual content has to be excellent otherwise nobody will watch. This requires practice. In order to improve our content we broadcast every local event, large or small, and learn from each event.
