IP-SERVER is a software solution combining 2 essential functions:
IP-SERVER PLAY: Play Streaming video feeds in real time and in broadcast quality over an IP network.
IP-SERVER RECORD: Record Streaming video feeds arriving over an IP network connection (from professional hardware encoder or gateway devices).
The control interface (IP ADMIN) enables:
Controlling several PLAYERS / RECORDERS from a single remote interface.
Start PLAY, PLAY LOOP or RECORD operations.
Selecting a MULTICAST (or UNICAST) address and the sending and receiving ports.
Selecting the media source to play or to be recorded.
Simultaneously viewing of up to 3 video feeds.
A software solution that offers a low cost solution architecture:
A simple Workflow is all that's needed to record or broadcast a professional quality video stream.
To record: only an SDI source, a hardware encoder and a computer are needed.
To broadcast: only a computer, a hardware decoder and a monitor are needed.
The machine's performance is directly related to the numbers of players and recorders (ranging from 1 to N players depending on the machine's core number).
IP distribution can be made using existing computer cabling.
1 PLAYER per core CPU
Professional high bit rates
The feed is not altered whatever the number of Play/Record.
SD / HD
MPEG2-TS, MPEG4-TS (H264)
FEC (Forward Error Correction)
Multicast / unicast.
Independently of the control interface, IP SERVER can be managed using GPI, the LOUTH automation protocol, IP or XML
Broadcast of SPTS or MPTS video
Forward error correction (FEC) mechanism
PLAY while RECORD (Configurable schedule settings)
Broadcast via multicast or unicast.
Record an SPTS or MPTS stream
Forward error correction (FEC) mechanism.
Coupled with IP decoders, IP SERVER can be used as a broadcasting video server.
Simultaneously switch the same video to several targets (multicasting) for performance gains and considerable cost reduction (1 to N).
Simultaneously record all the programs from a satellite feed (requires a DVB-H / ASI gateway).
Record the video sent by an IP camera directly to a hard drive.
Transmit a recording with a delay (Time-shifting function).
IP Gateway: receive an SPTS or MPTS on an IP address and send it delayed (25 ms) on to another IP address in order to permit, for example, the real-time internal broadcast of a meeting .
