About biddr

biddr is a live bidding platform that serves as an interface between auction houses and online bidders. We offer real time streaming of room auctions to an internet audience as well as live online auctions. Thanks to our intuitive and clear live bidding function, bidders can easily participate in auctions from all over the world.

Technology

To ensure a reliable, secure and user-friendly service, our system is built on various modern technologies:

  • For communication between web browser and web server, we use WebSocket API (HTML5), which is supported by all current browsers. This enables extremely fast and bidirectional communication, and runs on all modern devices (computer, tablet, smartphone, etc.).
  • To ensure the lowest possible latency for our live audio stream, we use Adobe’s Real Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP). A current version of Adobe Flash Player is therefore required.
  • For the encryption of communication we use an "Extended Validation SSL Certificate" on the whole website.

Company profile

biddr is a product of the company skayo AG, based in Root (Lucerne, Switzerland) and is operated by Simon Wieland and Sandro Kopp.
