Why use a qualified encoder?
Use a qualified encoder with MSL to ensure that you have a seamless event setup and successfully stream your live event.
Limitations of a non-qualified encoder include difficult technical escalations and issue resolution, unsupported security mechanisms, and incompatibilities with various functionality such as 24/7 streams.
MSL does not accept streams pushed from non-qualified encoder.
