Rich set of input and output IP protocols

The StreamHub supports a rich set of input IP protocols, enabling reception of up to 16 concurrent incoming streams from remote AVIWEST PRO transmitters, MoJoPro smartphone applications, or third-party systems such as IP cameras. In addition, the StreamHub platform offers support for multiple output streaming protocols (e.g., RTMP, RTSP/RTP, HLS, TS/IP), allowing video content to be distributed over virtually any IP network. Up to 16 IP outputs can be utilized to enable re-streaming of video content over LAN or WAN to CDNs, media servers, streaming platforms, IRDs, or other StreamHub platforms.

“Teaming up with Globecast, we are dramatically improving the way that broadcasters deliver live news, sports, and special events coverage,” said Erwan Gasc, CEO, AVIWEST. “Based on a Linux server, the StreamHub platform offers broadcasters a reliable, flexible, and simple transmission method for streaming high-quality video content anywhere in the world.”
