With the advent of HTML5, metadata is required to be sent out-of-band. Most solutions rely on inefficient short polling which can be a costly challenge to support. StreamGuys has developed superior metadata streaming with push-based events that solves these challenges. Push based metadata reduces the overall bandwidth usage and server load of metadata-based functionality versus traditional polling based metadata-functionality.
SGmetadata can push metadata to SGplayer and other third party services, such as TuneIn, through API integrations. SGmetadata can also perform metadata based alerting when integrated with our SGalerts service.
