Telehouse has equipped Streamworks with the international service, security and network resilience that enables it to lay the groundwork for continued success.
“We’ve pretty much broken every record in the book for live video streaming,” says Ayres. “This would not be possible without a strategic partner that sits at the very core of our optimisation and delivery service. Telehouse has enabled a very advanced tech start up to cross the chasm to full
Telehouse’s technology infrastructure is at the heart of Streamworks international service. Operating across the globe, Streamworks streams footage from various ‘hard-to reach’ locations including the war zones in Afghanistan and Iraq. The global network of Telehouse data centres enables Streamworks to deliver a fast and reliable live service that is unaffected by
geographic location. This global availability has allowed it to continue its record breaking habits. In 2012 it enabled the Major League Gaming to deliver content to over 4.7 million unique online viewers tuned in during the MLG’s 2012 Pro Circuit Spring Championships weekend. Concurrent viewing peaked at 437,000 viewers. In an increasingly connected and mobile digital landscape, Streamworks is now helping its clients generate revenue wherever possible. This monetisation
strategy extends to video anywhere, including smartphones, Smart TVs and traditional online entities. Streamworks recently signed a new deal with AP that expands the live news streaming service to the AP Video Hub live news service. This allows end-users to have access to breaking news events as well as the ability to book and schedule planned live news events on an ad-hoc basis.
“To deliver reliable live content we need to have 100 per cent confidence in the security, resilience and reliability of our service. If something goes wrong then we have complete faith in the support team at Telehouse to ensure our service remains un-disrupted. That is invaluable for an online company,” comments Ayres.
The infrastructure that Telehouse offers is enabling Streamworks to deliver better quality content at lower costs. With a growing audience and record breaking viewerships, customers are seeing considerable return on investment (ROI) and increased margins. “We couldn’t do what we do without Telehouse,” says Ayres.
Streamworks is currently headquartered in Luxembourg with operational offices located in London and New York. With measured growth expected up until the end of this year, Streamworks is expecting an explosive start to 2014 with the company looking to expand in territories such as Russia, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Latin America.
