DUBLIN, Feb. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/xnmtwb/ustreams_sdcdn) has announced the addition of the "Ustream's SD-CDN Could Be A Bandwidth Exchange For Live Broadcasters" report to their offering.

Ustream has developed a reputation for its ability to host some of the world's largest streaming events via its HD broadcast video platform. In 2015, Ustream created a unique solution that is the result of seven years of developmenta technology called Software-defined CDN or SD-CDN.

If Ustream takes what it has built and offers it as a stand-alone service, customers would then be able to buy live delivery services from a bandwidth exchange.

This would be a game changer, as there is, at present, no easy way for large content owners to buy from multiple CDNs without signing individual contracts with each CDN.

Ustream has developed a reputation for its ability to host some of the world's largest streaming events via its HD broadcast video platform.

The company hosted more than 1 million concurrent viewers and 1 million total viewers during the launch of Sony's Playstation.

Though it is a challenge to scale to accommodate a large audience when the size is predictable, it is even more difficult to scale quickly when the audience size is unpredictable.
