R&S subsidiary GMIT will showcase its newly acquired RelayCaster and CodecCaster products for the first time since acquiring the technology of Motama GmbH earlier this year.
The new version of RelayCaster features integrated SDI/HDMI input and encoding. According to R&S, with RelayCaster, reliability of contributing and distributing live content via unmanaged networks is significantly improved, as packet loss issues are efficiently resolved. RelayCaster enables the replacement of expensive, dedicated links or contracts with CDN service providers. In contrast to these services, RelayCaster is not limited to certain regions or data centers.
The product targets live content producers and aggregators as well as live content service operators and OTT operators. It extends the reach of live streams to a global scale, harnessing the power of the internet as a flexible and cost-effective means of content contribution and distribution.
“Even though it is utilizing the public, unmanaged IP networks, RelayCaster enables secure and reliable data contribution,” commented Dr. Marco Lohse, Director of R&D IP Gateways at Rohde & Schwarz subsidiary GMIT GmbH. ”It empowers users to create flexible and scalable do-it-yourself content delivery networks and by doing this it offers unbeatable levels of OPEX using internet capacity in such a creative way.”
CodecCaster is a turn-key solution for real-time transcoding, offering IP-based format conversion and bitrate reduction for MPEG transport streams. CodecCaster supports transcoding and transrating to multiple bitrates for adaptive streaming for MPEG-2, AVC/H.264 and HEVC/H.265. The output of DVB compliant and OTT streams is also supported. In addition, audio pass through and audio transcoding for AAC, MPEG audio and Dolby Digital Plus is available.
