Telestream’s new IP connectivity a significant boon for broadcasters
Telestream, a provider of workflow automation, media processing, video quality monitoring as well as test and synchronisation solutions for the production and distribution of video, has announced the latest release of its Lightspeed Live Capture multi-channel on-premise ingest solution.
Version 3.5 enables broadcast organisations to connect the live video capture software over IP networks locally or remotely, using SMPTE 2110 with NMOS (Networked Media Open Specifications), NDI (Network Device Interface) sources and SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) sources. The new methods augment the Transport Stream and RTMP (Real-Time Messaging Protocol) IP formats that Lightspeed Live Capture already supports.
Scott Matics, Senior Director of Product Management, Telestream, said, “As global demand for VoD and live streaming continues to grow, it is critical that the workflows to create it are also able to take advantage of the flexibility and simplicity of IP networks.
“With this connectivity, broadcast engineers and operations staff can capture and route high resolution IP streams around to multiple systems, onsite or remote, incredibly efficiently. Add to that the unprecedented integration with our Vantage Media Processing Platform plus an expanded Avid workflow and you can see how significant this leap forward is for network capture!”
The new connectivity methods provide reliable, low latency, frame accurate connections over common IP network implementations while preserving source synchronisation. NMOS support for SMPTE ST 2110 adds a control plane that makes the infrastructure simpler to operate.
The implementation comes with full support for the ISO4 and ISO5 specifications. Using the ISO4 specifications within NMOS, Lightspeed Live Capture can query for information about other devices.
