Activation Threshold allows broadcasters to push more traffic with greater efficiency. You can now set a minimum number of viewers per stream for Streamroot peer-to-peer to be activated. Particularly useful for those with large libraries and low-concurrency VOD content, broadcasters can set the activation threshold for Streamroot DNA™ according to their business goals and their use case for maximum power.
This option is mostly beneficial when you have a concurrent viewers limitations. It allows you to make sure that the number of viewers on specific unpopular streams is not increasing the total number of concurrent viewers, thus leading you to reach your limitation without getting a real value of our P2P technology.
How to use our activation threshold feature:
How it works
The activation threshold is based on 2 parameters:
the number of new sessions
a time period over which our backend counts the number of new sessions
For each content:
- if the number of new sessions during the time period is smaller than the threshold: it means the content is not popular enough. Streamroot won't be enabled, the peer agent won't be activated and viewers won't be visible on your Streamroot portal
- if the number of new sessions during the time period is bigger than the threshold: it means your content is popular enough. Streamroot will be fully enabled.
