Together, this advanced technology provides users with unmatched redundancy, resiliency, and reliability to broadcast quality live video streams. Further, its application programming interface (API) will allow for advancements in live video streaming innovation across all industries. Compared to most single-sourced CDN solutions, its unique UCDN architecture aggregates the capacity of all major content delivery networks across the globe into one optimized network always guaranteeing the best viewer experience, from any location in the world. UMS controls the full lifecycle of live video streams and assures the ability to seamlessly scale to millions of concurrent viewers from any device; further, UTCP ensures smooth, non-buffered playthrough in adverse network conditions. Its first live video stream in 2007 engaged a small community in the hundreds; today, the most popular live video streams captivate millions concurrently. Earlier this year, Ustream powered two massively-scaled events within one week -- NASA's Russian meteor fly-by and Sony's PlayStation 4 announcement -- each reaching 8 million global viewers, with a peak of 1 million concurrent viewers. The Ustream Cloud Platform is the only global, live video streaming platform that can scale to this level and beyond.

Partner developers can easily create simple interfaces that connect consumer and professional streaming products to the live video streaming network with the click of a button; they can also expand their own network by creating and customizing channels on the fly via the API.
