Advantages of video calls based on the patented Multipoint Control Unit (MCU)
Cloud Processing Service
The Eyeson MCU+ service is an enhanced software cloud MCU (Multi Control Unit, based on Eyeson Single Stream Technology) that provides an API for group video conferences adding custom data & media content to the video stream.
MCU vs SFU
MCU (Multipoint Control Unit)
The streams from all participants will be collected on a virtual cloud server instance. Only 1 single stream (SST) is sent back to all participants.
SFU (Selective Forwarding Unit)
The stream is directly forwarded to the other participant. This happens without additional processing of the video.
