Streamlining Workflows for One to Hundreds of Encoders
Today's live and on-demand media production and distribution workflows are more sophisticated and diverse than ever before. The volume of content to be processed continues to increase exponentially. The number of live viewing channels across multiple devices and platforms continues to grow with audience demand, increasing the number of encoders required. Consolidated management, monitoring and automation are crucial to reducing operational complexity and costs.
The scalable Digital Rapids Broadcast Manager software provides enterprise-class management and automation of multiple Digital Rapids StreamZ, StreamZHD, StreamZ Live and TouchStream encoding systems. Whether you have one encoder to automate for scheduled ingest, two encoders for fault tolerance of mission-critical applications or two hundred encoders for multi-channel installations such as IPTV headends, the Broadcast Manager software can simplify your workflows and lower your operational overhead.
Reinforcing Reliability for Live Streaming
Live streaming gives no second chances, and Digital Rapids encoders feature robust reliability to meet these unforgiving demands. To bolster reliability even further, Digital Rapids Broadcast Manager provides failover management and "self-healing" recovery to automatically respond to any failures. If a failure occurs on an encoder, Broadcast Manager automatically transfers operation to a backup system, with minimal interruption to your customers' viewing experience. Integrated control of upstream, third-party video routers automatically re-routes input sources accordingly. Broadcast Manager's progressive "self-healing" functions attempt to resolve problems directly on failed systems -- particularly significant if backup encoders are unavailable.
