HD support for Archiving & Live Streaming (HLS & RTMP)

Today, we’re excited to bring support for 720p HD to our Archiving and Live Streaming features. With this release, our APIs will provide developers an option to record OpenTok and live stream OpenTok sessions in high definition, and as a result create more engaging live video experiences.

Live video sessions on OpenTok already support 720p, but until today, customers could only record and live stream at 480p. With a growing number of education, webinar and media and entertainment customers, demand to support HD resolution for recording and live streaming has been gaining momentum and we are pleased to finally make this available for our customers.

To get started please refer the API documentation - Archiving & Live streaming. As always your feedback is most welcome, give us a shout here or by sending an email to [email protected]
