Corona: Stage Audio Works offers South Africa’s first end-to-end live streaming service

As a direct response to the new pressures faced by businesses in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, South African AV technology solutions provider Stage Audio Works announces StreamWorks, South Africa’s first end-to-end live streaming service. StreamWorks, a Stage Audio Works initiative, delivers a combination of hardware, software and infrastructure that enables secure internet video delivery across the world.


“COVID-19 has changed the way we work forever”, says SAW’s group CTO, Nathan Ihlenfeldt. “Participation in virtual events and remote meetings via the internet has become the norm for most of us, and even when the world finally starts to open up again, will remain an important part of our everyday lives.”


StreamWorks’ core offering is its web streaming service hosted on infrastructure with multiple CDN providers delivering content to end users, and multiple origin servers located in geo- and network-divers hosting environments. With POPs on all of the major IXPs globally, the StreamWorks CDN provides fast loading times and high video quality regardless of viewer location. The StreamWorks player can be embedded in any website, offering full viewer engagement and geo analytics for each event. Events may also be simulcast to social media networks.


Additional services include a customisable webinar platform that provides delegate registration, attendance tracking, chat and Q&A, coupled with low-latency video delivery technology; a customised event landing page with a custom URL slug which can include an embedded video stream player, chat, Q&A and other useful content; and an IP camera restreaming service, enabling customers to embed live feeds from RTSP or ONVIF cameras on their website for viewing across the world.


Additionally, StreamWorks offers an SRT Contribution network that allows remote contributors around the world to send low latency video and audio from their location to the production site over the Amazon Web Services network. This is particularly useful for bringing in remote studios with green screens into one virtual production.
