Mark Rushton, Business Development Director at VITEC, and Lorna Garrett, Managing Director at Zest Technologies, (formerly Co-founder and Commercial Director, Garland Partners), stress how to maintain stream integrity and avoid picture quality issues.
A video stream can be delivered through several paths, be it via satellite, high-capacity fibre or an unmanaged network such as the internet. When sending video across an unmanaged network as packets, they can arrive in the wrong order, or go missing altogether, leading to a loss in picture and/or picture quality. There’s nothing worse than when the dreaded ‘frozen’ image strikes in a video stream, which can turn audiences away in droves. So, how can we avoid that?
To find out more, join Mark and Lorna on the VITEC channel, where they discuss:
- The three major stream protocols – ProMPEG, SRT (Secure Reliable Transport), ZIXI
- What are the benefits of SRT?
- Implementation of SRT
- How latency and buffering can allow a decoder to re-request missing data
- Which VITEC products offer protocol protections?
