What are live streaming solutions?
Live streaming solutions are video hosting platforms that enable real-time streaming of video content over the internet. There are several types of solutions: consumer/prosumer level solutions for creating and broadcasting content include YouTube, Twitch, Facebook Live, and so on, while professional live streaming solutions for broadcasters, operators, and media organizations have additional mission-critical features such as increased reliability, content protection measures, and so on.
What is live streaming and how does it work?
Live streaming is the technology used to stream video content over the internet to multiple devices in real-time replicating the traditional live broadcasts of linear television. Using data compression and encoding techniques, the video’s data is divided into smaller fragments and then distributed to viewer devices through a dedicated distribution network of servers via a Content Distribution Network (CDN). The individual user’s device receives, decodes, decrypts, and decompresses the video data received and plays the video using a dedicated app or player.
What is live streaming used for?
Live streaming is used for many purposes, including broadcasting live events, video conferencing, and online education. In a media industry context, it is increasingly being used to broadcast concerts and sporting matches by providers of SVOD services, enabling them to differentiate themselves by offering live content that was once the sole preserve of linear television services.
How to make live sports streams protected?
To protect live sports streams different techniques are required, including a Secure Video Player, Digital Rights Management (DRM), Conditional Access System (CAS), and watermarking. Ideally, these are applied in combination with other security techniques, such as geo-blocking and encryption. VO’s Anti-Piracy Center offers a comprehensive set of services to extend the security offered by traditional content protection mechanisms and counteract all piracy use cases.
How do I protect a live stream?
First, make sure you choose a secure streaming service, such as VO Secure Video Player. Then, a combination of security measures is required, including DRM and dynamic watermarking. As there are multiple types of threats in a landscape that is constantly evolving, you should also employ active anti-piracy measures to detect unauthorized illicit streaming, breach detection or password sharing. These need to be coupled with swift remediation acts against the violating parties. Usually, all these measures include both automated scraping and manual searches, with human expertise in the field still vital despite many recent advances in AI-driven capabilities.
