Vitec’s HOW streaming solution renews its vision
In a bid to further the capabilities of its end-to-end streaming solutions with the additions of recording, playback and time-slip functionality, Vitec has partnered with Renewed Vision. A house of worship with multiple campuses can reportedly tailor broadcast services to the needs of its satellite locations due to Vitec integrating its House of Worship Streaming Solution with Renewed Vision’s ProVideoServer.
The streaming solutions provider’s encoders, decoders and Zixi protocol are now available as a bundle with ProVideoServer, enabling easy recording from the main campus of one or more encoded streams, alongside embedded timecode and multichannel audio. Playback of the streams at a satellite campus can take place at any time, either on a delay or immediately as the recording is taking place live as a result of the ProVideoServer’s time-slip functionality.
Vitec’s advanced video compression is designed so that all streams will display in high quality on large IMAG screens, while video-transport issues that plague unmanaged IP networks are to be eliminated by the Zixi software. Meanwhile, the manufacturer states that the synchronisation abilities provided by the ProVideoServer and Vitec’s encoding and decoding technology allows multiple camera angles ‘to stream at the highest HD video quality and at the lowest possible latency to a remote site, making it an ideal dual-input, dual-output, time-slipped media record and playout server’ for HOWs that stream multiple cameras.
‘We provide multisite facilities with reliable, high-quality, and low-latency streaming solutions that operate over the public internet,’ explained Mark D’Addio, vice president business development and emerging markets at Vitec. ‘The question then became “how do we give them reliable recording and playback options?” With the integration of the ProVideoServer with Vitec’s House of Worship Streaming Solution, churches now have a reliable solution that provides their satellite campuses with the best possible streaming experience.’
‘Historically, video streaming to remote locations has been far too expensive to achieve a quality product,’ added Renewed Vision’s president Brad Weston. ‘We are thrilled to partner with Vitec as we believe ProVideoServer coupled with their high-quality encoder/decoder products makes for a great solution.’
