It’s the easiest way to add IP contribution to any Avid production workflow.
MediaCentral | Stream makes it easy to bring remote live feeds into your production. All you need is an Internet connection. Record IP streams from cameras, OB vans, mobile devices, news agencies, and other sources directly into your MediaCentral production environment in the same way you ingest live SDI feeds. Securely control more ingest sources from anywhere with the new MediaCentral | Acquire web-based app. It’s ideal for bringing in content from teams reporting on location, in the field, and from home into your production, whether on premises or in the cloud.
Gain more production flexibility with real-time SRT playout to and from any location. Because MediaCentral | Stream can be integrated into an on-premises, on-location, or cloud workflow, production and playout can happen from anywhere, with the ability to securely ingest and stream content to any location. And multiple devices can be controlled by MediaCentral | Command.
With the ease and cost-savings of sending feeds over the Internet, IP contribution is increasing at a rapid rate. With MediaCentral | Stream, you have a flexible, easy-to-use software solution that lets you capitalize on this growing wealth of material. Not only does it enable your organization to provide broader coverage of more stories, it opens up new content and monetization possibilities while cutting resource requirements and costs.
No need to wait for feeds to finish recording. You can jump right in and edit media while it’s being captured—and stream out content too—enabling teams to turn around breaking stories faster. You can even share new footage and highlights immediately to social media, your website, and other digital platforms—while the recording is still going—to beat your competition and drive more traffic to your broadcast and other properties.
