Acquire for Uplynk

Start your streaming service journey by easily ingesting video to the cloud or to a local system

The first steps in streaming video delivery – ingesting and preparing content – can be expensive and overly complicated. Ingest workflows vary. When reliable high-bandwidth upload is available, cloud ingest is usually preferable. However, for remote situations or areas where bandwidth is spotty, local ingest may be advantageous. Lack of ingest flexibility can be risky and costly.
