Hey @a85brown, @jondahl, @heff & @matt_mcclure, Can you tell us more about what you've built here? What makes it stand out from other streaming products out there? What was one of the most difficult aspects of creating this?

Hi @jacqvon - one of the main ways Mux Live is unique is that it's fully API-driven and designed for developers building live platforms. There are very, very few cloud-based live video encoding APIs out there, and so if you're a development team who wants to build something like Twitch, HQ, Periscope, or whatever, you usually end up spending months (literally) wrangling with encoding, ingest, failover, delivery, and scaling on EC2 or GCS.
