​Haivision Media Gateway Availabile in AWS

Haivision’s Media Gateway is now available for cloud deployment in Amazon Web Services (AWS Marketplace), giving broadcasters and enterprises a low-latency and bandwidth-saving solution for connecting multiple facilities with secure HD video over public internet connections.

In AWS Marketplace, Haivision Media Gateway is available as an hourly pay-as-you-go service or bring-your-own-license product. Customers can deploy the solution as a preconfigured Amazon Machine Image (AMI) in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) with just a few mouse clicks. Access to the Haivision Media Gateway in AWS Marketplace gives customers the ability to build scalable streaming workflows that use low cost internet connections to distribute low latency video to multiple locations.

According to Peter Maag, CMO, Haivision, “Media Gateway delivers an alternative to the long lead times, prohibitive costs, and scheduling challenges that accompany the use of satellite and custom networks for video distribution. By replicating streams in the cloud, the Media Gateway eliminates the need for excessive uplink bandwidth to serve multiple locations.

“Organizations can use the Haivision Media Gateway as a video network bridge to transport video between studio environments,” he says. “This brings broadcasters an easier way to backhaul video to a centralized production venue before being distributed to remote affiliates.

“Organizations can now also easily distribute live events from remote sites like hotels and satellite offices by sending a single stream to the cloud before being distributed to multiple facilities at low latency.

“As the demand for content continues to grow, broadcasters are looking towards added flexibility and lower cost. Making our cloud-based video streaming solutions available in AWS Marketplace helps broadcasters easily scale their live video infrastructures.”
