Enabling efficiencies that will boost the streaming revolution
To meet consumer demand to stream more video on more devices, the industry has seen an evolution in primary distribution technology. Delivery of fully-originated linear channels to distribution partners and affiliates has traditionally been over satellite and managed IP networks. Today, more flexible, cost- and power-efficient solutions are required to make the business case viable.
For added flexibility and cost-saving reasons, broadcasters and operators are now exploring the possibilities that IP-based delivery and the cloud can offer for video transport. SRT, Zixi and RIST provide broadcast-grade contribution over the Internet with all the necessary protection needed.
Appear offers SRT and Zixi support in the form of a plug-in module, adding primary-distribution-over-the-Internet support on top of all other supported contribution methods.
