The rapid adoption of live streaming continues to grow with the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, as a large number of companies are using this technology to improve their day-to-day operations.
The possibilities of live streaming go beyond connecting people and enabling musicians to go live from their living rooms. These technologies are also being deployed to power unique applications like emergency communications, health care patient monitoring and coronavirus case tracking in an effort to flatten the curve.
