MultiStreamer BD HD-SDI/IP™ Enables Churches to Stream Live Video from Remote Sites to the Web and/or to iPads or iPhones
San Diego, California — DVEO, the broadcast division of Computer Modules, Inc. (CMI), announced today that their live video streaming server/decoder has won the 2014 Worship Facilities New Products Award for Best Podcasting, Webcasting or Streaming Product. The MultiStreamer BD HD-SDI/IP™ was chosen by Worship Facilities and Church Production Magazine editors, distinguished members of the WFX Advisory Board, and WFX management to join an exclusive group of organizations deemed the most noteworthy.
The MultiStreamer BD HD-SDI/IP is a real time bidirectional SD HD encoder/decoder/streamer for 2 way communications, with a one second end to end delay. It enables churches to stream live video from remote sites to the web and/or to iPads or iPhones, and also to stream the video to HD-SDI editing workstations. The system is also available with optional HDMI input and output.
"We are proud and honored that Worship Facilities Magazine selected the MultiStreamer BD HD-SDI/IP for Best Podcasting, Webcasting or Streaming Product," stated Laszlo Zoltan, Vice President of DVEO. "This encoder and decoder in one has quickly become a favorite with our customers."
The MultiStreamer BD HD-SDI/IP can encode and decode HD streams at different resolutions. It can create multiple simultaneous high, medium, and low bitrate IP streams and send them to iPads, iPhones, content delivery networks (CDNs), and remote video capture devices. Each stream can have several proxies with different "Wrappers" such as HLS, RTMP, etc.
The highly affordable system is ideal for live streaming to or from church services, youth camps, festivals, weddings, funerals, etc. It eliminates the need for satellite uplinks and downlinks, saving congregations a considerable amount of money and time.
Trinity Fellowship of Amarillo, Texas, a large and vibrant church with eight campuses in Texas and Oklahoma, uses the system to improve the quality of their services. "Each campus sends a live video feed of their worship service," says Michael Wells, Executive Director of Operations. "The video is stored on DVEO's optional Stream Bucket™ archive system. Later we evaluate the worship experience, and each campus receives feedback." (The MultiStreamer BD HD-SDI/IP ships with one terabyte of local storage. The optional Stream Bucket provides greater storage capacity and archiving features, including file organizing and time stamping.)
The system is able to upconvert incoming SD streams to HD. This is quite useful for receiving a live SD video feed and displaying it on an HD screen. The system also scales down HD streams to SD.
