Kaltura has added live monitoring to its webcasting platform.

With the additions, Kaltura Webcasting will enable webcasting producers to deliver live events and also gain visibility into the return on investment on their enterprise content delivery network (CDN) installations.

The platform already includes real-time audience analytics (including number of viewers, average buffering, etc), but now will offer unique live stream data monitoring, presented in a dashboard. The dashboard provides constant feedback on the incoming live stream. Producers can monitor their stream health, including bitrate, transcoding status and details, recording and DVR monitoring, and redundancy. They can also preview streams to ensure that there will be no transmission issues. The dashboard also alerts producers of any problems in real time, and provides helpful advice on exactly what to do to fix the issues to restore stream health.

“Kaltura Webcasting is already being used by some of the world’s largest global businesses, running thousands of live streams every month. These new dashboards let users monitor streams, and the eCDN in great detail, and deliver smooth webcasts for a flawless user experience,” said Michal Tsur, co-founder, president and GM, enterprise & learning, Kaltura. “Plus, webcasting production teams get to demonstrate the value of their business decisions by being able to use the data provided to highlight the ROI.”
