Stream Alerts is proud to be the first company to offer Content Payload Monitoring services. Now you can rest assured that your stream is not only available for your customers, but it is definitely sending the audio and video that you intended.
Our system actually listens to the audio in your stream and will send you an alert if it goes silent or gets so loud as to cause distortion. It also watches your video for motion, sending an alert if it freezes. Other monitoring systems just see if your stream is putting out data and happily let you know everything is fine even though you might be broadcasting a silent, black void of nothingness. We also provide data about playback times, buffering duration, streaming bitrate and more.
Many live streamers have an automation system, satellite or separate source of programming feeding ther streaming encoders. Unfortunately the encoders will keep streaming data even if they don't have any content to send out. Our Payload service will make sure your stream has real, live content and will send you an alert the instant there is a problem. Our servers monitor your stream 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, or if you like, you can schedule monitoring for only the times you have content available. Our Content Payload Monitoring service also includes Availability Monitoring just to make sure your stream is always available.
