Enhanced Distribution to Asia, Australia and Europe

March 21, 2022

Stream distribution enhancements for clients with intercontinental requirements are now available.

Streams will push to origins in each non-source region. So if you stream to a US origin, it will go transparently to Japan, Australia and Europe. Similarly, if you stream from Europe, your stream will push to Toronto as well as Japan and Australia.

Edge nodes in each region can now pull streams from these regional origins. This improves viewer experience, as network round trips are shortened and HLS chunks are served regionally to these audiences.

This mid-origin system is available on request to accounts with diverse global reach (normal bandwidth rates apply).

Please contact us if you want this enabled on your account.
