Prior to the COVID pandemic, remote work was a slowly growing trend, and live video conferences were used for some circumstances, but traditional, physical meetings were still the most prevalent. However, in 2022, in our third year since the pandemic began, all of this has changed drastically, and permanently.
Although live video has brought a significant amount of convenience to our lives in regard to business operations, social interactions, entertainment, marketing, and more, we’ve also discovered the downside to this remote world that we had previously only dreamed of.
Live video is obviously extremely useful in a business setting, particularly since so many employees are now working remotely and geographical location is no longer a major concern. However, we’ve now encountered the dilemmas of things like spending hours of time per week waiting for video meetings to start, or running into issues like latency, bandwidth availability, connectivity, and poor video quality.
Each of the most common live video problems can actually be resolved immediately with the use of single stream technology. This technology, made specifically with live video in mind, takes data, live stream, and participant feeds and merges them into a single stream, projecting a single video that can be viewed, embedded into any web service, and without the need for infrastructure to be viewed by clients.
Single stream technology is the future of quality live video.
