BoxCast is a complete, easy-to-use live video streaming solution for organizations. Our customers vary wildly in size from small churches to pro sports teams and professional broadcasters. It is common for us to observe a single broadcast spike in viewership from a few dozen to tens of thousands of concurrent viewers very rapidly.

All the while, hundreds of other broadcasts are being live streamed around the globe. And our system automatically responds day or night to handle the load without blinking an eye.
