Baishan provides multiple reliable media streaming solutions, enabling rich experiences in different mediums such as entertainment and business scenarios, ensuring VOD and live stream quality.

Industry Pain Points

High Traffic Volume

Media content delivery consumes large amounts of traffic bandwidth. Increasing resolutions of video content up to 4K or higher place high demands on bandwidth redundancy and scalability. 

Content Theft Severely Affects Corporate Earnings

Media websites are under numerous threats including DNS hijacking, CC attacks, DDoS attacks, and more. Security vulnerabilities can negatively affect media platforms’ credibility. Attacks may also cause financial loss and damage businesses’ reputations.

Poor Audio and Visual Experiences Lead to User Attrition

Unpredictable Internet events can negatively impact the quality of content-related streaming services. Multimedia platform providers are under pressure to optimize TTFF, playback smoothness, and latency.

Complex Content Processing Results in Operational Challenges

Multimedia platforms must be compatible with many devices and complex network environments in order to adhere to delivery compliance requirements. To meet these demands, effective content processing functions such as recording, screenshotting, transcoding, and protocol transferring are essential.
