AVIWEST’s StreamHub Transceiver Now Enables Broadcasters to Interconnect to Numerous Third-Party Live Transmitters at a Time
AVIWEST, a global provider of video contribution systems, today announced that the new software version of its iconic StreamHub transceiver is now vendor-agnostic and universally compatible with third-party transmitters. Using StreamHub, video professionals and broadcasters can receive transmissions from various types of transmitters, enabling them to quickly, easily, and simultaneously share high-quality live content with multiple affiliates or other broadcast facilities.
AVIWEST StreamHub provides
broadcasters with a scalable and tailored video solution for managing
and sharing live streams from multiple transmitters via a single
interface. With StreamHub, video professionals 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 video professionals time
Knowing that broadcasters 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
broadcasters 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 AVIWEST StreamHub
transceiver, broadcasters can offer an increased amount of live video
content and boost viewer engagement,” said Ronan Poullaouec, chief
technology officer at AVIWEST. “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 features AVIWEST’s Emmy
Award-winning SST (Safe Streams Transport) protocol, which reliably
combines multiple algorithms, including FEC, ARQ, and VBR rate control,
to provide a high quality of service. 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.
