Live Streaming Video and Voice Quality of Experience

Give your application and web users a fully integrated, premium quality, reliable live streaming video and voice experience.

Why Quality of Experience Matters

As business and consumer communications moves rapidly from expensive PSTN and private data networks to the Internet, it is essential for your app growth that users get a better quality of experience than they ever had before.

Agora.io is uniquely and completely focused on QOE for live streaming video and voice with an end-to-end solution to all the challenges from mobile devices themselves, device performance variation, mobile last mile, network latency and packet loss, and Internet backbone delay and bottlenecks.

  • Support a wide range of mobile and desktop devices with varying media capabilities.
  • Ensure your real-time communications and live streaming broadcasting works even in developing countries with poor infrastructure.
  • Avoid last-mile connection issues and handle differences in 3G, 4G and Wi-Fi connectivity.
  • Maintain quality of experience even when users move in and out of mobile network coverage.
  • Overcome network bottlenecks, slow connectivity during high-use times and random traffic spikes.
  • Build rich social experiences with thousands of users receiving live streaming voice and video.

Features

Comprehensive Mobile Optimization


QoE starts on the device – our SDKs are built from the ground-up for mobile conditions and variations, including full video and voice media stacks and optimized “last mobile mile” connectivity to the Agora Global Network..

Optimized Internet Routing


With 70+ data centers distributed around the world, we spot global bottlenecks early and rapidly re-route streaming video and voice for optimal performance to ensure QoE.

Large Group Voice Conferencing and Broadcast Streaming


Build rich social experiences for thousands of users.

Up to 20,000 participants can join a single voice session, with all participants receiving voice streams from up to 6 active speakers, which are selected automatically as people speak, and can be restricted to certain users using the API for broadcast apps.

Large Group Video Conferencing and Broadcast Streaming


Video sessions are currently 5-party and will be expanding to 25-party in second-half 2016 and then to more general broadcast streaming to thousands of participants in a future release (like we do today for voice). To join our beta program for live broadcast video streaming contact sales@agora.io.

Elastically Scalable - No Central Servers’


All Agora.io conferencing and video and voice streaming is managed in a completely distributed way by the Agora Global Network with no central servers, or “MCUs” or “transcoding”, or single point of failure. This dramatically reduces latency, maintains global quality and allows for extremely cost-effective large group conferencing for social, broadcast, training, presentation and other application use cases.
