Avid announced the introduction and immediate availability of MediaCentral | Stream, a software-only solution that enables simple, secure and reliable contribution from multiple incoming IP streams, including Haivision and LiveU, into the MediaCentral platform for fast content turnaround.
New features are available to users: now they can preview incoming streams, record them in production friendly formats and edit media while the recording is ongoing. With support for the two most common IP stream protocols, RTMP (Real-Time Messaging Protocol) and SRT (Secure Reliable Transport), users get access to a flexible and scalable architecture regardless of where the production is deployed.
“IP protocols are being leveraged more and more for contribution to support news, sports and remote live production providing significant cost and operational benefits,” said Raul Alba, Director of Product Marketing — Media and Cloud at Avid. “MediaCentral l Stream enables those incoming streams to be ingested, re-wrapped or transcoded into production-friendly formats to support on premises or cloud-deployed Avid production workflows.”
MediaCentral | Stream makes it easier for media received via IP streams to be previewed and edited within the MediaCentral platform and in Media Composer and other production tools.
