  • Enables remote configuration for Teradek encoders and decoders;

  • Supports the following stream modes: MPEG-TS, SRT, RTSP, HLS, and RTMP/S (including Youtube, Facebook, Twitch, Vimeo, IBM Video Streaming, LinkedIn, Wowza, Livestream, EasyLive.io)
    NOTE: HLS and RTMP/S requires the output stream be H.264

  • Restreaming H.264/H.265 video with AAC audio at any resolution and bitrate;
  • Web browser streaming (H.264 only);NOTE: If the input stream is H.265 and you require web browser playback support, then you will need to select for a server upgrade

  • Cloud recording and file downloading;

  • CoreTV streaming with voice and text chat collaboration;

  • Supports Teradek apps (Click here for more info);

  • Multi-destination streaming.
