Boost Your Streaming Experience with Our Latest Updates

Boost Your Streaming Experience with Our Latest Updates

The latest updates to Gcore Video Streaming are focused on increasing capacity and resources to help ensure smoother, more reliable streaming for your viewers. Here are the key updates from June 2024.

Expansion of US Ingestion Points

We’ve increased the number of ingestion points available across the United States with our latest addition in Miami.

This expansion means that your audience will experience reduced latency and improved stream quality no matter where in the US they’re located. More ingestion points enable better load balancing and faster data transmission, ensuring a seamless viewing experience.

Increased Hot Storage Capacity for VOD in the EU and US

In response to the growing demand for high-quality VOD content, we have significantly expanded our hot storage capacity across locations in Europe and the United States.

This expansion allows for more VOD content to be stored and accessed quickly, providing your viewers with faster start times and smoother playback. Whether your audience is binge-watching TV shows or catching up on missed live streams, they will benefit from faster access and less buffering.

Multiple Ingest Points via API

You can now use multiple ingesting points through our API. This improvement is particularly beneficial for broadcasters with complex streaming setups or those who want to ensure redundancy. By using the push_url attribute in our API, you can now manually select from an array of multi-regional ingestion points, rather than relying on one default point. By fine tuning your streaming setup, you enjoy greater flexibility, improved reliability, and robust streams that can handle varying traffic loads without interruption.

For more details, explore our API documentation. To activate this option, please contact your account manager or our support team.

Updated UI for Video Entity Page in Gcore Customer Portal

We’ve revamped the UI of the video entity page in the Gcore Customer Portal, making it easier to manage and monitor your video assets. More fields are displayed from the API now, providing a more comprehensive overview of your VOD content.
