Ustream is the leading technology platform for live social video streaming, powered by the company’s proprietary Ustream Cloud Platform. The company was founded in 2007 with a vision to bring live broadcasting technology to the entire world; Ustream was originally created to connect military service members to family members and friends across the world. Since then, the company has established itself as a socially-fueled communications platform for businesses, non-profit organizations, and individuals of any size to easily reach an infinite audience and share experiences in real-time.
The core of the Ustream Cloud Platform centers around the company’s proprietary Ustream Content Delivery Network (UCDN), Ustream Media Server (UMS) and Ustream TCP Congestion Control Algorithm (UTCP). Together, this advanced technology stack provides users with unmatched redundancy, resiliency, and reliability to broadcast quality live video streams. Ustream is a San Francisco-based company that has grown to more than 250 employees within their San Francisco, Los Angeles, Budapest, Tokyo, and Seoul offices. Company partners and customers include Dell, Sony, Georgetown University, Panasonic, Samsung, CBSi, and Viacom.
Ustream is a privately-owned company. For more information on Ustream, visit Ustream.tv, Twitter.com/Ustream, or Facebook.com/Ustream.
