Aviwest's DMNG StreamHub will enable sharing of live HD video content with other broadcasters around the world

Global content delivery company Globecast has deployed Aviwest's DMNG StreamHub receiver, decoder, and distribution platform at its Paris hub. Utilising the digital, mobile ENG application, common customers of Globecast and Aviwest will have an easy way to share live HD video content with other broadcasters around the world.

The DMNG StreamHub supports an array of input IP protocols, enabling reception of up to 16 concurrent incoming streams from remote Aviwest DMNG PRO transmitters, DMNG smartphone applications, or third-party systems such as IP cameras. The DMNG StreamHub platform also offers support for multiple output streaming protocols (e.g., RTMP, RTSP/RTP, HLS, TS/IP), allowing video content to be distributed over most IP networks. Up to 16 IP outputs can be utilised to enable re-streaming of video content over LAN or WAN to CDNs, media servers, streaming platforms, IRDs, or other DMNG StreamHub platforms.

"With 35 points of presence and 12 teleports worldwide, Globecast is dedicated to helping broadcasters deliver content across five continents," said Marc Logez, head of marketing, global contribution at Globecast. "In keeping with its technology-agnostic approach, Globecast has extended and enhanced its offering to incorporate IP solutions while continuing to supply the high quality-of-service it is known for. Adding Aviwest technology to Globecast's arsenal of contribution and delivery services gives our customers access to alternative solutions for streaming superior quality live video."

"Teaming up with Globecast, we are dramatically improving the way that broadcasters deliver live news, sports, and special events coverage," said Erwan Gasc, CEO of Aviwest. "Based on a Linux server, the DMNG StreamHub platform offers broadcasters a reliable, flexible, and simple transmission method for streaming high-quality video content anywhere in the world."
