Is my stream up?
Thanks to a new fully automated cloud-based services launched by StreamGuys, there’s no need to even ask.
The content delivery network and streaming media provider is now offering a tool named IsMyStreamUp to online radio stations across its platform.
The platform enables users of any CDN or streaming platform to continually monitor the status of their internet streams, critical content assets and production workflows.
Internet radio broadcasters using StreamGuys’ delivery platform will have access to alert configurations for multiple streams via a cloud-based dashboard.
IsMyStreamUp alerts the specified contacts via email the moment it detects a monitored stream or page has gone offline, and notifies them again when the stream or page is back up.
Users can make self-serve modifications or additions to their monitoring configuration at any time through the IsMyStreamUp portal, with changes occurring in real time.
“Ensuring stream integrity and accessibility is important for audience retention and advertiser satisfaction for every internet Radio outlet,” said StreamGuys COO Jonathan Speaker. “IsMyStreamUp makes automated, 24/7 stream monitoring easier and more accessible for users who previously thought such services were too much work to manage themselves, or too expensive for their business model.”
Subscription-based pricing for IsMyStreamUp starts at $10/month for monitoring one stream at standard settings, with options including premium frequency, multiple regions or contacts, and additional monitored properties.
