Digital Rapids previews TouchStream streaming appliance
Digital Rapids unveiled a technology preview of TouchStream, a new live video and audio streaming appliance, at IBC2008 in Amsterdam.
TouchStream appliances deliver Digital Rapids' live streaming in a fully self-contained, easily deployed portable form factor. Streamlined software controls are accessed through a touch-screen interface with integrated live video monitoring and VU meters for audio validation, eliminating the need for laptops, keyboards, mice and separate monitors.
TouchStream appliances are well-suited for on-location live streaming of events, such as concerts and sporting matches, remote news coverage and courtroom proceedings. A choice of formats, including AVC/H.264 (including Adobe Flash Player 9), VC-1 (Windows Media), On2 VP6 (Adobe Flash 8), 3GPP and MPEG-2, lets users target audiences and platforms from Internet TV to mobile phones.
TouchStream units include the same video and audio preprocessing features as Digital Rapids' StreamZ and StreamZ Live studio encoding and streaming systems.
