The first of Primestream’s new IP stream solutions allows users to capture, edit and transcode web, camera, and broadcast sources such as HLS, MPEG Dash, RTSP and RTMP streams in single or multiple self-contained file formats and quickly integrate that content through a production, management and delivery workflow.
The new stream recording product further offers flexibility by enabling users to easily manage signal paths through configured pre-sets with defined sources and file formats. Other benefits include the ability to preview live recordings inside a web browser and edit while capturing streams inside Adobe® Premiere® Pro with a growing timeline. The solution also provides an HLS live output for streaming to the Web and smart devices.
Primestream’s new IP stream technology is powered by a new Media Processing Framework (MPF) and Media Player Recorder (MPR), which together enable native reading and writing of MXF-based and Atom-based files such as MP4 video, giving professionals the ability to work with leading broadcast file formats such as ProRes®, XDCAM®, DNxHD®, and AVC-Intra® while leveraging Atom-based file formats such as H.264 for creating proxy assets and the delivery of web content inside both FORK™ and Xchange™ platforms.
Primestream will also demonstrate the capture of SMPTE 2022 IP streams such as HD-SDI and 3G-SDI whilst still being able to capture traditional SDI signals with compatible hardware.
“IP traffic has been on the rise and is anticipated to continue along a similar trajectory over the next five years,” said Claudio Lisman, President and CEO of Primestream. With the introduction of our new innovative IP stream workflow, we can make sure that users are capturing from a wide range of sources using the latest standards and formats, while also moving that content to production, management and delivery easier and quicker than ever before.”
Primestream will start take orders for IP stream solution at NAB 2018. The Framework, the Media Player, and Codecs are software components that will be licensable and deliverable from Primestream.
