Customer Background

  • Peeqr is a live broadcasting platform for individuals to broadcast themselves using their mobile phone
  • It has a unique and friendly design, and provides numerous interactive features for users to interact with broadcasters
  • It is particularly popular between marketers and influencers

Challenges

When Peeqr started, they were looking for the best technology stack to support their requirements, from content capturing, ingest, processing, packaging and delivery.

They tried a number of popular frameworks, but found they required in-depth knowledge of video technology that their team didn’t have.

OMG's Solution

Peeqr backend CMS and smartphone apps are integrated with Onwards Pro APIs for tight information exchange and video controls.

Peeqr has selected Onwards Pro as their core video processing platform, taking multiple concurrent ingests from live broadcasting smartphones, then transcoding and packaging them into adaptive bitrate streams for distribution.

Through the development phase and also after the apps have gone live, OMG’s team of experts have worked closely with Peeqr management and their offshore development team to give them the best advice and support, ensuring a smooth implementation and production launch.

Both teams are still working closely together for ongoing enhancements.

Benefits

By using Onwards Pro, with easy integration and great onsite support, Peeqr was able to finish their platform development and launch their service very quickly.

The scalable architecture allows Peeqr to launch in relatively small scale with cost under control during the initial deployment, with the ability to easily scale up as the audience grows.
