StriveCDN announces StackPath as technology partner for Playout P2P CDN

The P2P CDN accelerator StriveCDN partners with CDN provider StackPath to announce Playout, the world’s first global-scale P2P supported live streaming CDN.

With the amazing help and support by StackPath and its Propel Start-Up Program, we were able to launch with an incredible infrastructure and very competitive pricing within weeks! The integrated support of P2P acceleration is a major step towards a new era for the OTT industry. Playout provides a pre-configured live video CDN that comes with a pricing model based on view-hours. An origin ABR-streaming server, that you can choose from 8 different locations, is provided as well. Especially for large events, this model is very easy to apply. All you need to know is the amount of viewers and the duration of the event. Now instead of paying for traffic or bandwidth, only the consumed view-hours (one viewer who watches a video stream for 60 minutes) are part of the pricing model.
