ViewCast debuts new encoding control software

ViewCast is now shipping Niagara SchedulStream, a new automation software for scheduling and management of Windows Media and RealNetworks’ RealVideo encoding sessions. Utilizing streaming templates developed for specific applications, the software allows the user to optimize the scheduling of feed recording and playout.

Niagara SchedulStream enables the remote management and scheduling of streaming and encoding servers. In addition to automating encoding schedules, the system simplifies the digital archiving of video content, allowing users to store content locally as well as through network locations. The system is included as a standard feature on all new Niagara Streaming Systems.

SchedulStream is an upgrade to ViewCast’s Niagara SCX software, which provides an encoder management interface for Niagara Streaming Systems. Additionally, Niagara SCX coupled with SchedulStream offers compatibility with Harris/Louth media management and automation systems.

Applications for Niagara SCX with SchedulStream include coordination of multiple encoders for training sessions, scheduling batch encoding for broadband; dial-up, and mobile reception; and the simultaneous encoding of Windows Media and RealNetworks formats.
