Cinegy Clarifies Cloud at NAB seminars

MAM developer Cinegy will present ‘Cloudy With a Chance of Media’ in  a series of on-booth seminars at NAB 2015.

The company suggests it will demystify what 'cloud' really means for broadcasters and how Cinegy is optimising a range of internet-oriented technologies for safe, effective and beneficial deployment in the traditionally conservative world of broadcast-engineering software.

The seminar will begin with focus on virtualization, which will include how to deploy Amazon EC2 Air to host a service; a demonstration to confirm that GPU acceleration works; and how to establish a broadcast island in the cloud.

Part two will examine HTTP protocols and the use of Amazon EC2 Air to send MPEG2 TS over HTTP.

It’s no secret that the world is awash with streaming protocols, which can make multicasting more pain than panacea. With simple but often misunderstood or un-configured settings required to scale multicast, as well as the problems of routing multicast over the internet or streaming UDP through firewalls, sending multicast content reliably to any home or mobile in the world is difficult.

Cinegy will discuss “RtpHttpGateway”, an experimental tool being used inside Cinegy that takes UDP RTP packets on a multicast broadcast network and makes them available over any other routable network via HTTP TCP connections.

Cinegy's Lewis Kirkaldie said, “Every format has its merits, so why be limited to just one? While our RtpHttpGateway streaming format is ‘non-standard’, it takes advantage of existing standards and is at least as good, and often better, than the standards it supplements. With RtpHttpGateway, streams can be played directly in VLC or Windows Media Player and will even work in common browsers if they have the application installed.”
