Put Video to Work Across Any Cloud
Learn why uStudio has been rated the industry’s most innovative video platform. uStudio’s cloud video integrations help customers take advantage of all that the cloud has to offer without the costs of lengthy service engagements and rigid, difficult-to-maintain custom implementations.

Cloud Video Integrations Can Include:
Use uStudio’s standard cloud hosting to minimize burden on your own infrastructure and take advantage of our design choices including auto-scaling, load balancing, clustering, and other high availability strategies. Or, use your existing cloud environment. uStudio can accommodate any storage configuration including public, private and hybrid clouds, or on-premise.
Choose our default CDN — the world’s largest global Tier 1 network — where transfer speeds average 40Mbps or greater. We also regularly accommodate our customers’ CDNs, whether through their existing partners or their own CDN infrastructure.
Privacy & Security
uStudio’s flexible access control models support internal, external, and mixed-audience viewership. uStudio is compatible with a variety of privacy and authentication protocols including SAML, OpenID, and OAuth, and can adapt to the access controls in your native enterprise systems, so you can decide who can access what, where.
uStudio’s APIs were designed to maximize integration potential and give developers an easy way to put video inside of applications. Video capabilities are exposed via simple REST APIs, so customers can use our platform to automate any or all of the video lifecycle — ingest, transcode, distribute, play, and analyze videos – at any scale, using any access protocol. Every video within uStudio makes use of our APIs – every single day.
Interactive Players & Frameworks
uStudio does more than integrate players. Our full video platform allows you to place an entire suite of video functionality — searchable libraries, asset management, interactive players, flexible distribution and analytics — directly inside of most business systems. This includes enterprise marketing, sales, learning, customer service or chat applications. We also provide a suite of branded applications for companies who prefer stand-alone video solutions.
uStudio requires only an industry-standard RTMP input stream and supports every modern device, browser, and network through optimized, adaptive, HTTP-based streaming protocols such as HLS, DASH, and HDS. Customers can choose their own hardware or software encoding solutions in order to support streamlined live-to-VOD workflows.
Data & Analytics
Create detailed reports on who’s watching and how for added segmentation and customer profiling. Easily measure the impact of your training, sales and service videos in native dashboards.
