What is IBM Cloud Video Streaming Manager?

IBM Cloud Video Streaming Manager is a scalable, cloud-based streaming platform that is an end-to-end solution for live or on-demand video to an external audience. Managed from a dashboard by account administrators, the service supports both ease-of-use and complex setups. It can be combined with a marketing module as well to gate valuable video assets behind a registration form.
