The advent of on-demand services in content delivery has dramatically shifted the consumer perspective from a one-way, commercial-ridden, impersonal system to a more personalized media consumption experience — whether through a smartphone, tablet or other connected device. Developers and companies recognize that the next era in content consumption will require real-time interactivity between the broadcaster — traditionally the content provider — and their audiences.
"With our network spanning over international data centers and HD voice and video capabilities, Agora.io is well positioned to deliver a new paradigm for in-app interactivity," said Tony Zhao, founder and CEO of Agora.io. "In the last year, we have seen a big uptick in real-time communications being added to applications — the next step is true interactivity with consumers but also between consumers. Broadcasting, as new form of self-expression, can lead to new monetization models for several industries."
The Agora Interactive Broadcasting API is included and now available in the Agora SDK. Learn more at http://www.agora.io/product/interactive-broadcasting/
