WorkCast Platform Streaming Technologies

Last updated March 20, 2017

In order to reach the widest possible audience the WorkCast Platform uses multiple streaming technologies to ensure our events can be viewed across devices and networks.

The WorkCast Platform does not rely on a single streaming technology such as flash but instead checks your computer and browser to ensure we have the best possible solution for you. We are therefore able to support the latest browser technologies such as MPEG-DASH for newer browsers, device specific technologies such as HLS for Apple and mobile devices whilst still being able to support legacy technologies such as Flash for older browsers. These combined work to ensure that your event can be viewed by as wide an audience as possible.

Below is a chart detailing the compatibility of browsers and the technologies used.  

The WorkCast Platform will identify what is available within your browser type and choose the most suitable player type.
