WorldCast’s SureStream Technology Offers Flawless & Low Latency KVM Over IP

WorldCast announces the SureStream for KVM, a transformation of KVM infrastructures ensuring pixel-perfect transmission, latency free video and flawless audio, even over imperfect IP networks.

This solution is based on SureStream technology, which has already been proven in thousands of broadcasting deployments worldwide and is now being extended into the mission-critical broadcast control room.

Nothing is as mission-critical to the broadcaster as maintaining superlative KVM (Keyboard Video Mouse) response times between on-premise and co-location production and playout environments. Yet jitter, latency, packet loss and the rubber mouse phenomenon continue to plague any applications that leverage IP networks.

With a combination of redundant streaming technology, packet-forwarding, and virtual trunking solutions, this provides reliable Quality of Experience (QoE) for any content and any media over IP networks, and at a low cost, with high resilience, security, and simplified management and control.

This elevates the user experience through two new capabilities. First, it combines all available network links into one single link. This virtual trunk (V-Trunk) technique optimizes the available bandwidth. The second step involves packet loss protection and can guarantee virtually zero packet loss while utilizing 50% of actual trunk bandwidth capacity.

SureStream is a sophisticated redundant streaming solution that sends multiple streams from the same source to the same destination for enhanced reliability and resilience. It is media-agnostic and application-aware, meaning it addresses the packet-loss problem from both a networking perspective and an application perspective, allowing it to serve mission-critical KVM applications.

The flexible licensing models further increase the potential use cases. Enterprises can deploy into private clouds; OEMs can embed SureStream within new products and services; and broadcasters can cut CAPEX by harnessing the new software-defined ‘as-a-service’.
