New Ooyala Live Enhancements Bring Broadcast Reliability Closer to the OTT World

“While VoD has been a dominant part of OTT video services, live video is now enjoying a renaissance in the online space. Livestreaming from Facebook and Twitter, live sports broadcasts by Amazon and sports leagues, and the rapid growth of online pay-TV services with live broadcast channels are a testimony to the strength of this resurgence. In fact, 17% of U.S. consumers that watch live broadcasts on a TV use an online video service to do so,” said Brett Sappington, Senior Director of Research at Parks Associates. “Live online broadcasts drive record audiences and require robust systems that can supply the necessary quality demanded by consumers, media companies, and content owners.”
