ARCUS - Internet Streaming Service (CDN)

ARCUS is the premier streaming service from Discover Video, providing you all of the tools that you need to deliver live and on-demand video on the Internet.

Go Live
Live video streams are delivered to ARCUS using Discover Video’s DEVOS,  Streamsie PC/Mac encoder, or Streamsie app for iPad, as well as from other popular video sources. ARCUS will deliver high-quality video to thousands of users on computers and mobile devices; you can even create your own custom channel for Roku players. ARCUS will also allow you to upload and manage recorded video files making them available for immediate on demand playback.

Video On-Demand

Easily upload content recorded using DEVOS or Streamsie. You can also upload content created with popular editing programs such Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro, iMovie, and more. These videos can be easily embedded into your website.

Hands-Off Simplicity
ARCUS is inexpensive, ultra simple, especially when compared with other professional services. You simply enter your user credentials and your Streamsie software is automatically configured and ready to start streaming. Avoid having to enter separate server addresses, ports, username, passwords, remote directory, and so on for each of the provided services — vastly improving simplicity and eliminating the most common setup errors.
