Secure streaming

Outcast streams can provide advanced authentication and encryption options, allowing you to precisely control who can access your stream.

Bandwidth when you need it

The Outcast Digital content delivery network of global streaming servers operate from within several major data-centres and hosting providers around the world, including Europe, USA, and New Zealand.

In addition Outcast can utilise the Amazon EC2 Cloud-Computing network to support large-scale high-bandwidth events.

Outcast’s advanced networking model enables streaming servers to mirror and relay each other, allowing you to scale your bandwidth and capacity requirements easily and without interruption to existing services.

Statistics and analytics

All Outcast streaming products include Outcast’s custom analytics and statistics engine, delivering the usage data you actually need, including the types of statistics used by professional broadcasters all over the world.

Track usage such as listening hours, data transfer, connections and unique IP addresses by year, month, day, day of the week, hour of the day and more.

The fully custom built analysis engine delivers the statistics that can tell you instantly when your stream is popular, and when it’s time to start hiring new DJs. (demo)
