Concurrent launches Real Time Pitcher 2000
Concurrent has announced the Real Time Pitcher 2000 (RTP2000) for time-shifted television applications.
The RTP2000 uses resilient real-time content distribution to ensure no loss of video captures due to network or component failures, enabling content ingest success rates up to 99.999 percent.
The RTP2000’s primary function is to convert unicast FTP information sent from a single source to a single point, to reliable multicast where information is sent from one or more sources to one or more points.
The RTP2000 takes incoming video content and pitches it to several Real Time Catchers (RTC) from which video servers pull and stream selected content to the end-user.
