An Industry First
Stop worrying about stream dropouts because of temporary network failure or losing viewers due to unrelenting buffering wheels! The Living As One Web Platform is the first streaming solution offering 100% resilient cloud transcoding for live video. With existing live streaming technology, if video from the encoder doesn’t make it to the cloud within a few seconds, that video content is lost and the cloud transcoder will not have a perfect copy to transcode into multiple bitrates. Thus, all viewers will see video that has been transcoded with missing data, resulting in a poor viewing experience including buffering wheels, jitters and quality loss.
With the Living As One Web Platform, powered by the patented Resilient Streaming Protocol, there is no time restriction on when the video is sent to the cloud, and the transcoder can wait for a perfect and complete copy, without worry of temporary network interruptions delaying the transmission. This means, for the first time, viewers will see perfect quality video across any device. The delay is configurable, and even a 2-minute delay makes a huge difference in viewer quality, resulting in a high-quality, uninterrupted viewing experience atypical of most live environments.

As a tech director, organization staff member, or volunteer, you have enough on your plate. Our platform was designed to take the hassle out of live streaming. After a simple setup process, the Web Platform runs itself.
Recurring events (such as weekly church services) may be scheduled to stream automatically each week, or launch along with existing Multisite Platform events. Events can be embedded on your website or easily integrated with the free Church Online Platform (we’re big fans), launching a robust online campus that requires no weekly maintenance.
Watch Anywhere, Any Time
Utilizing next-generation streaming technology MPEG-DASH and HLS, web platform streams may be viewed on any device, with full DVR playback. Persistent URLs are also available for iOS/Android apps and OTT (Over-the-Top) devices such as Roku and Apple TV. Additionally, the Web Platform supports scheduled Sim-Live (Simulated-Live) playback of content from the cloud, providing the ability to host an enriching online guest experience through synchronized replay of services at any time. What’s more, once live or simulated-live web events are scheduled, player embed codes remain the same – this means that you can set and forget.
Adaptive Bitrate Streaming
One of the biggest pain-points for live video streaming is ensuring that both your broadcast site and online audience have enough available bandwidth for a continuous viewing experience. Unfortunately, because the internet is an unpredictable place, consistent bandwidth is not guaranteed. To solve this problem, Living As One’s web platform includes cloud transcoding, which converts a single high-quality live video stream into multiple bitrates (qualities) in the cloud. Converting the video into multiple bitrates in the cloud conserves upload bandwidth at your broadcast site because you don’t have to provide every bitrate for the audience, and this means you can do more with less.
For your audience, the device which they are watching on will automatically and dynamically select the best bitrate – this is called adaptive bitrate streaming (ABS). The automatic bitrate selection is dependent on many factors such as the user’s available bandwidth at any given moment and the available processing power of the device they are watching on. Adaptive Bitrate Streaming is very important to ensure your viewers have the best possible viewing experience possible. We never recommend streaming without it, which is why we include it in all Web Platform plans.
Proactive Monitoring and Support
When you subscribe to the Living As One Web Platform, you not only have access to an unparalleled simple and highly-reliable streaming solution; you also receive a dedicated support team that proactively monitors streaming health for each organization and responds to issues before they arise. Have questions? If you need help, we’re just a phone call or email away. With support hours specifically designed for churches, engineers are available when you need them, even on Sunday mornings.

“Throughout our testing, we’ve seen viewers watching on smart-TV’s, mobile phones, and all sorts of devices. It’s pretty incredible how simple it is to reach everyone. We get just one embed code, schedule each service, and it works automatically without us having to touch anything. LA1 has been so reliable for our Sunday live and sim-live messages that we are confidently using it to stream back our youth sessions from the beach, so the parents can see what their children are experiencing.”
