platform originally named Joicaster (go2sm
.com/joicaster), which later changed its name
to the much more descriptive Switchboard Live.
As shown in Figure 3 (on previous page), with
Switchboard Live, you can configure multiple
destinations in the service, which is simplified
by the presets shown. To go live, you send a single stream to Switchboard Live and check the
targets that you want to distribute to. Switchboard Live routes the live stream to the target
platforms without modification, so quality isn’t
degraded by transcodes. You can run the service via scheduled broadcasts, or on the fly.
Beyond this core functionality, the service
supplies an HTML5 player you can embed into
your own website, and it supports multiple in-
gestion points, so you can manage multiple in-
puts from one location. The service lets you
send a single stream to three preset destina-
tions for free, with more functional plans start-
ing at $25/month. Custom RTMP destinations
and the ability to transrate incoming video to
multiple streams both cost $10/month.
Teradek Core offers many of the same features, but really excels when working with Teradek encoders, which the system can configure and manage remotely. The system can also
archive every stream that’s routed through it.
Core is a natural service for those using Teradek
hardware, with plans starting at $49/month. Similarly, if you use Streambox encoders to originate your streams, note that Streambox Cloud
provides similar distribution functions to Core,
including multiple-channel streaming to Facebook Live and You Tube Live, with prices starting
at $99/month. Streambox also supports Live 360
and VR video streaming.
The final category is full-scale cloud production platforms that provide more than routing and distribution services. For example, the
