Video Livestreaming Has Never Been Easier And Can Help Us Stay Connected During COVID-19

Project description

Live-streaming through Covid-19

Live-streaming and video-streaming software services have revolutionised online information dissemination. While live-streaming remains time-consuming and expensive, the video-streaming market has been growing, worldwide. But the situation created by Covid-19 has opened the doors to live-streaming as a method of supporting both audiences and production companies. The EU-funded Contentflow project offers a flexible live-streaming platform for different formats. It allows audiences to gain real-time access to information, and supports companies that share information by live-streaming events during the pandemic. The technology offers a cloud-based engine that permits exporting and live-clipping of live streams, automated subtitles in all major languages, white label solutions, parallel live-streaming, player functionality, live-stream editing, streaming in full high definition, and re-streaming to all major social platforms.

Objective

Livestreaming offers many opportunities for marketing and information but its uptake is limited due to time-consuming and expensive systems. Video streaming is the fastest growing way that audiences are consuming content. Challenges associated with video live streaming include bandwidth issues. The global video streaming software market is expected to rocket to over €9 billion by 2023. Contentflow provides a complete livestreaming platform ranging from a single hub for Contentflow is already in the process of assisting in the critical situation with COVID-19. For instance, just in March 14th 2020, Contentflow has helped the Bavarian City Championships to be held virtually instead. Contentflow is the only technology that offers flexibility for different formats, a cloud-based engine that allows exporting and live-clipping of live streams, automated subtitles in all major languages, white label solutions, parallel live-streaming, player functionality, live stream editing, streaming in Full-HD and restreaming to all major social platforms (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, YouTube) and advanced analytics. Contentflow’s advanced analytics allows its users to get access to the vital information on their audience so that they can provide optimum content. Contentflow is helping companies to be able to continue sharing information via live streaming and putting events online during the Corona Virus outbreak. We have received a €2 million seed round investment from Speedinvest, VC Fonds Technologie Berlin, Betaworks, and Japanese Akatsuki Entertainment Technology Fund as well as other angel investors. Our clients will help us make revenues of €694,000 in 2020. Contentflow will help democratize information in Europe by providing a reliable video streaming service that can reach anyone, the ability to prove more transparency to voters, journalists and the public audience and opens political participation to even more target groups due to automated subtitles.
