StreamGuys features IsMyStreamUp
StreamGuys has launched IsMyStreamUp, a fully-automated, cloud-based service that enables users of any CDN or streaming platform to continually monitor the status of their Internet streams, critical content assets and production workflows.
Top-tier Internet Radio broadcasters using StreamGuys’ delivery platform have long depended on its SGalerts monitoring services to ensure stream continuity, which is crucial for protecting their brand image and advertising revenues. IsMyStreamUp has leveraged this pedigree to bring automated, 24/7 monitoring capabilities to streaming operators and users of any streaming host or CDN in a self-serve solution.
IsMyStreamUp enables users to configure alerts for one or more streams or content assets through a web-based dashboard. New customers create an account, enter the URL, and configure their contacts for receiving alerts. 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.
“Ensuring stream integrity and accessibility is important for audience retention and advertiser satisfaction for every Internet Radio outlet, but not every streaming operator needs our traditional hands-on, white-glove service”, has said Jonathan Speaker, COO, StreamGuys.
“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. With the intuitive, immediate provisioning and affordable, month-to-month service of IsMyStreamUp, there’s now no reason for anyone to let their streams go unmonitored”.
