Patented, reliable streaming technology

What makes BoxCast the best streaming platform? When you stream with us, your broadcasts are secure, stable, and supported by leading-edge technology. That includes features like advanced compression, transfer and transcoding, monitoring, and diagnostics.

 

BoxCast Flow

To say we’re kind of obsessed with quality live video is a major understatement. That’s why we invented and patented our own streaming protocol in 2015. BoxCast Flow is built into our hardware and software encoders, and reliably delivers the highest-quality picture to your audience — with less congestion and a third of the bandwidth — even when your internet connection isn’t great.

Compression

The industry gold standard, HEVC compression technology gives your viewers crisp, HD video while cutting your bandwidth in half.

Transfer + transcoding

Our event streaming platform does the heavy lifting by taking your high-quality stream and transcoding it into multiple qualities for your viewers. It minimizes buffering for them, and is less taxing on your network and equipment.

Monitoring + diagnostics

Easily monitor your stream performance, network, and more within the BoxCast Dashboard. Troubleshoot any issues using detailed data about the health of your broadcast (bitrate, frame rate, and packet loss).

An exceptional viewer experience

Give your audience what they want — captivating broadcasts they can watch wherever they like. With BoxCast, you can stream to multiple platforms and your website simultaneously to connect with people everywhere. And our robust feature offering helps you produce engaging, professional video content that exceeds viewer expectations.
