Picture this … you’re an enterprise video streaming company on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 List.

Businesses of all sizes rely on you for video equipment, hardware, and software to broadcast their events around the world.

But you need a way to bring your breakthrough SRT streaming protocol into the cloud era.

You know that cloud infrastructure can make streaming reliable and stable, but you’re not sure it’s fast enough or secure enough. Even a half-a-second of lag will dramatically impact the viewing experience.

So, you turn to SOUTHWORKS.

We built an Azure solution that gives users on-demand container provisioning to maximize video performance and reduce lag. We also use Azure IoT Hub service to build remote access and management tools for your SRT-enabled applications, workflows, and encoding devices.

Now, you can spin servers up and down with the click of a button — meeting streaming demand as needed.

In fact, with this technology, you were able to stream thousands of hours of video from more than 40 locations at the Microsoft Ignite conference without any delays. That’s what happens when you make everything right.
