Glookast Delivers Live Ingest Control

Gloobox LiveOps is a new multiviewer-based live ingest control application from Glookast.

Glookast's Gloobox LiveOps allows operators to control the recording of feeds from multiple sources, including live sports and studio feeds. Live feed recordings can be viewed and controlled via a web browser, which can control multiple channels across multiple Gloobox Capturer servers.

Multiple users can simultaneously allocate and manage 4K, UHD, HDR, and IP systems using a web-based interface. It also enables content providers to dynamically manage resource allocation between traditional scheduled feeds and live recordings, depending on current needs.

“Our customers are challenged with delivering compelling content to consumers in a myriad of different ways,” commented Felipe Santos, CTO, Glookast. “Being able to dynamically control live feeds is becoming increasingly important, making the process much more efficient, and ultimately enabling media companies to maximize the value of that live content by ensuring seamless delivery.”

Gloobox LiveOps ensures business continuity by assigning a pool of backup emergency channels for users, meaning they can quickly switch recording to a secondary channel should one of the primary channels fail.
