CP Communications Launches Content Acquisition Package at 2019 NAB Show  

CP Communications, a long-time provider of services and technology for live event productions, unveils its Red House Streaming brand of content acquisition packages at the 2019 NAB Show.

The aim is to compete in the fast-growing market for self-service content acquisition and streaming products for broadcasters, content creators and other media professionals, in this case with three distinct packages ranging from single-camera shoots to larger multi-camera productions. 

“The Red House Streaming brand is a natural evolution for CP Communications, due in large part to a convergence of many technologies and workflows in the broader marketplace,” said Jerry Gepner, the company's COO. “Our STREAM solutions are a direct response to the changing content creation and distribution requirements taking shape around the industry as IP technology and cellular services become foundational in broadcast and production.”

First of the three STREAM products to be introduced at NAB is CamSTREAM, a single or dual-camera acquisition system with streaming support over Ethernet, WiFi and bonded cellular service. This is designed for unattended operations including corporate events, distance learning, worship services, and modest TV studio productions.

Second up is MultiCam STREAM, a scalable multi-camera acquisition camera system for live-streamed and at-home productions, with support for four cameras, 32 audio channels and data, including return tally and four-wire intercom, in the base configuration. All camera feeds are simultaneously ingested into the system and can be decoded and delivered to service providers as individual SDI feeds or a multiplexed single stream. Finally comes Production STREAM, a multi-camera fly pack acquisition system for on-site and remote productions with larger I/O signal requirements.

The Red House Streaming brand conforms with CP Communications’ strategic direction as both a supplier and service provider, with options to rent or purchase any of the three packages, according to the company. The remote production teams will also use the systems for content acquisition and live event services, including at-home productions that originate from the company’s new St. Petersburg, Florida studio.

CP Communications is demonstrating all three packages operating from four live Sony cameras in the Mobile Viewpoint booth throughout the 2019 NAB Show.
