The Digital Rapids Broadcast Manager software provides enterprise-class automation, management, monitoring and fault tolerance for multiple live streaming encoders. Advanced scheduling capabilities offer the flexibility of using of a different set of encoding parameters for each scheduled task. A 'control room' view for multi-channel confidence monitoring complements the individual local video display on each TouchStream unit. Additional features include failover (automatically switching to a backup encoder if necessary); individual and group encoder management; and control of third-party video routers for automated source signal selection.
"The new Broadcast Manager support simplifies the management of TouchStream appliances for both small and large-scale applications, from remotely administrating one or more TouchStream units in the field to streamlining the use of multiple TouchStream units in environments such as universities," said Wesley Thiessen, Product Manager, Enterprise at Digital Rapids. "Broadcast Manager is already used to manage hundreds of live streaming channels powered by our StreamZ Live encoder family for some of the world's largest media organizations and events, and we're pleased to be bringing its robust capabilities to TouchStream users."
TouchStream and other Digital Rapids solutions -- including the StreamZHD live and on-demand encoding system and Digital Rapids C2 secure, accelerated data delivery software -- will be demonstrated in booth number 2378 at the 2011 InfoComm exhibition, June 15-17 in Orlando, Florida.
