StreamHub now vendor-agnostic with third-party transmitters

Case study

The new software version of our iconic StreamHub transceiver is now vendor-agnostic and universally compatible with third-party transmitters. Using StreamHub, you can receive transmissions from various types of transmitters, enabling you to quickly, easily, and simultaneously share high-quality live content with multiple affiliates or other broadcast facilities.

The StreamHub provides you with a scalable and tailored video solution for managing and sharing live streams from multiple transmitters via a single interface. With StreamHub, you can manage multiple streams and distribute them to multiple affiliates from a single point of control. Having the power to interconnect to numerous third-party live transmission tools instantaneously saves your time and money.

Knowing that you are often on the go and working from remote locations, StreamHub offers a web-based user interface with a video thumbnail view. This tool allows you to build a live video multiview composed with all input streams, which can be fed to affiliates. The multiview can be enriched with overlay information for each source, such as audio level and transmitter name. The main advantage of this capability is that it reduces data while feeding affiliates with multiple streams, allowing affiliates to choose a main stream from those available.

By streamlining their production workflow and optimizing costs with our flagship StreamHub transceiver, broadcasters can offer an increased amount of live video content and boost viewer engagement. During a live event, broadcasters need to ensure there is no delay. Viewers do not want to miss a second of the action, especially for live sports. Choosing AVIWEST’s live video solution with state-of-the-art HEVC encoding will ensure high-quality video at minimum bit rates with low latency.

StreamHub’s universality enables it to support a variety of streaming protocols, such as RTMP, RTSP/RTP, HLS and TS/IP, to ensure that broadcasters can freely distribute video content over the public internet and virtually any IP networks, including 3G, 4G, and 5G.

AVIWEST’s transceiver can be deployed on-premises or operated as a cloud-based service tailored to any news or live video production organization’s workflow and operational constraints, making it ideally suited for today’s ever-evolving multiscreen video delivery world.
