Enhanced Stream Distribution to Asia, Australia and Europe

March 22, 2022

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

Streams will push to an origin in each non-source geographic region. So if you stream to a US origin, it will go transparently to Japan, and 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 will pull streams from these regional origins. This improves viewer experience - 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.
