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.

HTML5 Live Stream Player with Multi-View EnabledIn 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 viewers simultaneously.  

Webcams are not designed to deliver reliable video directly to multiple viewers - nor are they designed to stream video to HTML5 based players on your website. HDOnTap’s live streaming network provides features not available directly from your webcam – Adaptive Bitrate Streaming, HTML5 Live Stream Player, SSL Encrypted Streaming for websites hosted on HTTPS, Any Device Streaming (Smart Phone, Table, Desktop, TV...), Automated Time-Lapse Clip Encoding, nDVR (Pause, Fast Forward, Rewind and Return to Live), Server Side Recording, Stream Analytics, Pre-Roll Ad Inserts, customizable HTML5 video embeds, Full Screen Viewing, Time-Shift Streaming for sensitive content, Secure Embedding to protect your content from being hijacked, Weather Bug Overlay, Player Branding, Player Multi-Views for multiple webcam installations, Customizable Stream-Time Outs, Live Snapshot Image Proxy...
