IP Network Streaming
This is the distribution of a live video signal or feed inside a local Network. The stream doesn’t leave the business network/intranet and an external server is not required.
IP network codec: The software modules IMS Webcaster and IMS EasyStream are equipped with a special IP streaming codec.
IP producer/encoder: The IMS Webcaster and IMS EasyStream Producer can make a media signal, such as a video or presentation, available within a network, and their encoder modules automatically assign and display a unique IP address for each signal.
IP player/decoder: The IP network stream can be accessed and played by any number of machines which belong to the network. Each machine requires the special decoder which is integrated into the Media Player module of IMS Webcaster. The Media Player can be assigned to a window in a Webcaster template, and can play back nearly all video formats as well as an IP stream. Alternatively, the IP network stream can be played back using the standalone IMS EasyStream Player which also has the special decoder.
No server – minimal latency: Because no extra external server is necessary between the encoder and decoder, the IP stream can be made available with almost negligible delay or latency.
High security – minimal cost: The data never leaves the local network structure, this makes the distribution very secure. Furthermore, there are no extra costs for traffic or internet bandwidth usage.
Applications: Internal company communication, video signal distribution within a building (e.g. from lecture hall to lobby or other rooms and areas, from conference hall to breakout rooms).
