RelayCaster Goes Cloud

RelayCaster is Motama’s solution for “broadcast-grade” live contribution over unmanaged long-distance internet links. It claims that the ability to fix packet loss rates of 25 per cent and more offers a cost-effective alternative to satellite links, dedicated links or fibre.

The product is now available for testing in Amazon's cloud services, Amazon AWS. Free evaluation licenses can be requested from Motama, which can be combined with all existing units of the RelayCaster product range.

“With RelayCaster for Amazon AWS we fulfill a wish often expressed by our customers,” says Marco Lohse, CEO, Motama. “RelayCaster allows you to solve the first-mile and last-mile problem: How to bring your live streams to the cloud and later out of the cloud again, in a reliable and secure way? With our solution, you can seamlessly combine on-premise and cloud workflows.”
