Castr is a simplified cloud-based live video streaming solution for businesses, broadcasters, gamers, educational institutions, religious organizations, and many other users.
Fremont, CA: Castr Live Streaming, a Canada-based cloud service for video live-streaming and multistreaming, announced their digitally transformative integration with Fastly, a powerful edge cloud platform and content delivery network (CDN). This integration accelerates Castr's video streaming platform and makes it easier for streamers to broadcast videos rapidly and efficiently.
"The COVID-19 era has forever changed how we interact with others. Virtual experience, especially video streaming, has become a lifeline that helps businesses and organizations ensure their business security," said Govinda Sunil, CEO, and founder of Castr.
Sunil continued, "As a creator of an online video platform, it is our mission at Castr to make video streaming easy and accessible. Castr's collaboration with Fastly will immensely enhance the video streaming quality for content creators and the viewership."
Castr uses Fastly's global capacity of 100 terabits per second to handle billions of requests a day. Their powerful global network also enables a seamless and safe streaming experience, even as livestream usage increases: more viewers, more streaming devices, bigger video files, higher video resolutions, and greater security risks. Users of Castr can now enjoy these video streaming benefits:
• Decreased Latency: Castr implements Fastly to optimize response time, enabling the streams to get to the audience as close to real-time as possible.
• Smoother Streams: Fastly defines failover scenarios to make sure there are no interruptions while streaming on Castr.
