Version 6 offers event tracking to measure user interactions and monitor video quality by placing events in streams through close work with ad agencies and analytics vendors. Furthermore, to compete with broadcast networks in video streaming over IP, version 6 of the player offers a new ultra-low latency live streaming feature. Apart from PRESTOplay for Web Apps, castLabs also offers video playback solutions for Android and Android TV devices as well as iOS and Apple TV. In all versions of castLabs’ SDKs is the firm’s proprietary ABR algorithm, which uses network estimation and video buffering to estimate the highest possible frame rate that can be sustained over time so viewers have an excellent streaming experience from the get-go.
