TikiLIVE streaming for Roku STBs
January 24, 2014
TikiLIVE has revealed it now offers Adaptive Bitrate Streaming for VoD accessed from Roku set-top boxes. With adaptive bitrate streaming, Eyepartner’s TikiLIVE starts at the lowest bitrate first which minimises loading time and continually adjusts to the viewer’s Internet connection to limit buffering and unexpected skipping.
Adaptive streaming automatically senses changes in the stream that’s delivered so when the Internet speed drops, the stream is not interrupted to ensure the viewer a smooth and pleasant experience.
“With Roku, our TikiLIVE broadcasters can stream both live and VoD content to the nearly 8 million Roku set-top boxes,” said Tim Green, Chief Technology Officer of Eyepartner. “With adaptive streaming, TikiLIVE creates a reliable VoD experience.”
