Dacast Overview

Dacast is an integrated video streaming platform that enables all businesses to broadcast audiovisual content and allows viewers to watch free or paid programming. It helps companies maintain consistent branding, by customizing the video player and adding a watermark logo to protect content.

Dacast distributes content via Akamai, the content delivery network, to offer enhanced security, improved speed and consistent quality on all devices. An adaptive video player supports multi-bitrate streaming and helps reduce buffering, providing users with an exceptional viewing experience.

Dacast features include Live Streaming Video, Embeddable Links, Video Hosting, Customizable Video Player, Video API, Monetization, Analytics, and more. A native video player can be integrated into a website via embeddable links or shared on Twitter and Facebook feeds. For custom integrations, Dacastoffers API access to the video player and content management system. Although it needs a developer’s help, the API allows to build a highly customized streaming service from the Dacast platform.
