KulaByte™ 4.0 uniquely matches exceptional HD quality with transport technologies designed to maximize streams delivered to the Internet. These technologies include constant bit rate (CBR), Dynamic Stream Shaping™ (DSS), and Micro-Chunking™, assuring optimal and dynamic usage of available uplink bandwidth.
