Honeycast Streaming Services Now Powered by Mushroom’s Streamer

The live casting and video streaming service provider leverages LTE bonding technology by Mushroom Networks for corporate live video production services

SAN DIEGO, CA – (July 12, 2018) – Honeycast, professional services provider for live event webcasting and video streaming nationwide added Mushroom’s 4G LTE bonding device as part of its service offering, enabling unmatched reliability and redundancy for video streaming.

When Ken Makow, the owner of Honeycast required Internet connectivity for his services such as live video production for internal corporate communications, instructional webcasts, press events and corporate town halls, his only option was relying on corporate networks. At times this posed a challenge for variety of reasons such as blocked ports, security lockdowns or other firewall or quality of service related issues with the local bandwidth made available to him. With Mushroom’s Streamer, Honeycast started to bring their bandwidth with them to event locations without the worry about local connectivity problems. “Initially I looked at LTE wireless for backup purposes. When I was referred to Mushroom’s LTE bonding device Streamer, a light bulb went off and I realized I didn’t need to rely on risky local connectivity any more. With Streamer I get ample bandwidth and more importantly unbelievable fidelity. I never ever had a glitch in any of my live video projects since Mushroom – period”.

Honeycast offers flexible services with support for any of the major CDNs including Amazon, Wowza, Microsoft Azure, Akamai or any others that their clients prefer. Similarly, Honeycast leverages software encoders such as Wirecast, Flash Media Encoder or appliance based encoders such as Haivision, Aja or Osprey. “Streamer is extremely flexible. I can use any encoder, or any CDN that my project requires and Mushroom’s Streamer simply plugs into my workflow and bonds my two Verizon, two AT&T and two T-mobile LTE sim cards flawlessly”, added Ken.

Mushroom’s Streamer is a small portable appliance that can house 2, 4 or 8 sim cards and can combine the LTE signals into a single bonded Internet connection that is optimized for live video streaming. Mushroom’s Video Armor technology provides guaranteed packet delivery to the video server, even during wireless network problems such as packet loss, delay, jitter or even full card disconnects. “Streamer is the most robust way of delivering video over IP networks in the industry. Webcasting as well as point-to-point video delivery projects can benefit from our solutions to create a predictable IP connectivity by combining unpredictable channels”, said Jay Akin, the CEO of Mushroom Networks.

Mushroom’s solutions that combine wired transports such as fiber, DSL, Cable, MPLS, T1, or wireless transports such as cellular, 3G, 4G, LTE or satellite are available both as turnkey hardware as well as software on virtual machines. Mushroom solutions are available worldwide. More information is available at https://www.mushroomnetworks.com .
