Simply great video technology

Crafted in Sweden and Finland by Bambuser, the Iris Platform is built on a rich Nordic heritage of impeccable eng­ineering paired with clean and simple design.

Driven by an obsession to simplify the most complex tech­nology and things, we built Iris to unleash simple, good (well, let’s not be so Nordic — awesome actually) and un­decorated frameworks, tools and infra­str­ucture to devel­opers everywhere. We built it so that you can create beau­tiful things on top of it.

By offering lightweight and simple APIs, Iris allow developers to instantly integrate world leading, proven and scalable end-to-end live video broadcasting in any app - saving 1,000s of hours of R&D and implementation time, minimizing time-to-market and maintenance.
