Role-Based Access Control

Access control your server is something that you should do to tighten security. You can easily control the access of users via the Role-Based Access Control panel that is available from VDO Panel.

For example, let’s assume that you are having multiple support staff or admin staff, who will work with you on your business. Then you can allow VDO Panel to create sub admin users. The sub admin users will not have all permissions that admin users have. You can simply allow them to provide support to the customers.

Access control is managed by user groups and roles, which is the standard method available to do it. When you are onboarding a new user, you just need to assign to the appropriate group. However, it is important to note that this feature is only available to hosting providers, and broadcasters don’t have access to it.

Free NGINX Video Server

NGINX RTMP is the NGINX module, which is providing you the chance to add HLS and RTMP streaming to the media server. As a TV streamer, you already know that this is one of the most popular streaming protocols that you can discover in an HLS Streaming Server.

HLC Streaming provides some powerful functionalities to TV streamers. For example, it comes along with adaptive streaming technology, which helps the TV streamers to adjust the stream according to the device of the viewers as well as their network conditions. This will allow all the TV streamers to offer the best possible streaming experience at the end of the day.

VDO Panel offers high-speed TV streaming with the help of a free NGINX video server. NGINX-powered live video streaming is powerful and efficient.

The NGINX video server will enable the broadcasting of secure live video streams. The video streams will be available via any preferred encoder. You can embed the TV stream on any website of your choice.

Multiple Server Load-Balancing

The TV stream you broadcast will contain both audio and video content, which is sent in compressed form over the internet. The viewers will receive content on their devices, which they unpack and play immediately. Streaming media content will never be saved on the hard drives of the people who view content.

One of the biggest reasons behind the popularity of media streaming is that the users will not have to wait to download a file and play it. That's because media content goes out in the form of a continuous data stream. As a result, the viewers are capable of playing media content as it arrives on their devices. The viewers of your TV stream are also capable of pausing, fast-forwarding, or rewinding content.

While you are streaming content, the load balancer available on the host can benefit you. It will analyze the visitors who are connected to your stream and how they continue to watch your stream. Then you can use the load balancer to efficiently use the bandwidth. It will ensure that your viewers are getting the raw files related to what they watch promptly. You will be able to ensure efficient utilization of your server resources and deliver an uninterrupted viewing experience to all the viewers.

Server Geo-Balancing System

VDO Panel also offers geographical load balancing or geo-balancing to the Hosting Providers. We know that our video streamers are streaming content to viewers all around the world. We provide an efficient streaming experience to them with the help of the geo-balancing system.

The geographical load balancing system will handle all the distribution requests and send them to different servers based on the location of the requested viewer. Let’s assume that you have two viewers on your stream connected from the United States and Singapore. The request from the viewer in the United States will be sent to a server that is located in the same country. Likewise, the other request will be sent to a server in Singapore or any other nearby location. This will deliver a faster streaming experience to the viewer at the end of the day. That’s because the time taken to receive content from the nearest server is much lower than getting streaming content from a server located in another part of the world.

You can make sure that people who are connected to your stream will never have to worry about latency. This will also improve the performance of your live streams effectively.

Centralized Administration

It is easy to use the VDO Panel host because everything is available to you via a centralized dashboard. Whenever you want to tweak a configuration, you just need to visit this panel. It makes life easy for you with centralized administration.

All these steps can be frustrating and time-consuming. Instead of going through such steps, you can simply get the job done on your own via the centralized administration dashboard. It is the only feature that you want to access for managing any aspect of your VDO Panel.

Advance Reseller System

VDO Panel will not just allow you to create your account and continue using it. It is also possible for you to create reseller accounts on the host and share them with other people.

If you are planning to start a business around your TV streaming, this will be a great option to consider. You have access to an advanced reseller system. All you have to do is to get the most out of the reseller system and continue with creating reseller accounts. You have the freedom to create as many reseller accounts as much as you can. The process of creating a reseller account will not be a time-consuming one as well. Therefore, you can secure a decent business as a hosting reseller. This brings in more revenue to you, along with video streaming.

Easy URL Branding

People will add your video stream to their players via the streaming URL. Instead of just sending out the streaming URL, you may brand it with something unique to your business. Then you can effortlessly take your branding to the next level and get more people to notice it. When you are using the VDO Panel host, you can quickly brand the URLs as per the preferences that you have.

To brand a streaming URL, you just need to dd a Record into it. By doing this, you will be able to rebrand either the streaming URL or the login URL for your broadcasters and resellers. In case if you are having multiple hosting websites, you will be able to have a rebranded URL for each website as well. However, you will still be having a single server to generate all those URLs.

Along with the help of this business, you can have multiple TV stream broadcasts at a time on different websites. People who view them would notice that all their content is coming from the same server. That’s because you have uniquely branded all the URLs. This is one of the most impressive features available in the VDO Panel to expand your business efforts.

SSL HTTPS Support

SSL HTTPS websites are trusted by people. On the other hand, search engines tend to trust websites with SSL certificates. You must have an SSL certificate installed on your video stream, which will make it more secure. On top of that, it will contribute a lot to your trust and credibility as a media content streamer. You can easily earn that trust and credibility when you are using the VDO Panel host for streaming TV content. That's because you can get comprehensive SSL HTTPS support along with your TV stream host.

Nobody would want to stream content from an insecure stream. We are all aware of all scams that are taking place out there, and your viewers would want to keep themselves safe at all times. Hence, you will have a difficult time in terms of attracting more viewers to your TV stream. When you start using the VDO Panel host, it will not be a major challenge because you will get the SSL certificate by default. Hence, you can make your video streaming URLs look like trusted sources for the people who are interested in getting hold of them.

Real-Time Resources Monitor

As the owner of VDO Panel Host, you will come across the need to keep your eyes on the server resources at all times. To help you with that, VDO Panel provides access to a real-time resources monitor. The resources monitor is accessible via the admin dashboard. Whenever there is a need for you to monitor server resources, you may use this feature.

The real-time resource monitor will make sure that you get a clear picture of all resource utilization within the server at any given time. You will never have to deal with any assumptions because you can see all information clearly in front of you. It will be possible for you to monitor the utilization of RAM, CPU, and bandwidth effortlessly. On top of that, you will also be able to keep your eyes on the client accounts. In case if you get a complaint from a client, you can deliver a quick solution to it because your eyes are on real-time statistics available via the resources monitor.

Whenever your notice that your server resources are being overutilized, you may take appropriate actions without waiting. This will help you to stay away from a server crash, which will cause downtime and interrupt the viewing experience of your followers.

API Reference

When you are using VDO Panel for streaming, you will come across the need to integrate with multiple third-party applications and tools. VDO Panel never restricts you from going ahead with such third-party integrations. That's because you will be getting access to a standardized API for integrations. Complete API documentation is available to you as well. Hence, you can read it on your own and go ahead with the integration. Or else, you can share the API documentation with another party and ask to proceed with the integration.

This is one of the simplest automation APIs that you can find. However, it allows you to unlock some powerful features that would ultimately benefit your TV stream. You may even think about enabling functionality that may seem impossible with the help of API reference.
