Why do I need HDOnTap?

In a few words, HDOnTap’s services unleash features and services not available with your webcam out of the box. 


In more words - Typical internet connections do not provide adequate bandwidth to support high-quality video to more than two or three simultaneous viewers.  HDOnTap’s Live Streaming Network minimizes bandwidth usage by securing a single high quality video stream from your camera and re-broadcasts the live video using our distributed network of servers – thus eliminating the need for costly high-speed internet bandwidth , improving video quality and simultaneously delivering the video to thousands of users.   Along with smart bandwidth usage, HDOnTap’s streaming technology provides features not available when streaming directly from your webcam – Live Stream Transcoding & Adaptive Streaming, mobile streaming (iPhone/iPad/Android), time-lapse video, network DVR – pause, fast forward, rewind and return to live video, server side recording, streaming analytics, pre, mid and post roll ad inserts, customized website video embeds eliminating plug-ins, full screen viewing, time-shift streaming for sensitive content, secure-token stream theft protection, bandwidth connection limits, admin control panel and much more.
