StreamZ Live Broadcast input options will include SDI (3G/HD/SD), IP and ASI signals, with IP and ASI output configurations. StreamZ Live Broadcast can be managed and controlled through an intuitive web interface, local front-panel controls or the Digital Rapids Broadcast Manager software. SNMP management support enables seamless integration into existing television operations.
"Broadcast television providers and advanced media outlets are now integrating their multi-screen delivery initiatives directly into their core broadcast operations, reflecting the pivotal significance of new viewing platforms for their business," said Tony Huang, Senior Product Manager, Broadcast and Live at Digital Rapids. "The StreamZ Live Broadcast hybrid encoder will provide them with a unified, versatile platform integrating all of their encoding requirements for any target screen."
