South Africa: Mobile Video-Streaming APP for Low-Bandwidth Africa

A South African developed video streaming solution, specially designed to cater for the low-speed internet environment encountered in most parts of Africa, has been released as a free mobile application for Apple and Android phones. The platform, known as Adaptive Real-Time Internet Streaming Technology (Artist), makes unbroken video-streaming possible with the use of algorithms to adjust quality to available bandwidth – meaning that the rate at which a video streams varies depending on the available bandwidth at the time. […] The mobile app, recently launched on the Apple iOS and Google Android App stores, delivers 10 unique “TV-type” channels 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The download of the app is free, but viewers do pay for the associated data costs. – AllAfrica.com
