Key facts

  • Field-proven QoS maximization for unmanaged IP networks
  • Point-to-point, point-to-multipoint, multipoint-to-multipoint
  • Recovers up to 50 % packet loss and removes jitter
  • Secure live contribution and distribution with encryption
  • Adaptive H.264 compression for maximum bandwidth savings

Live IP streams brought to the next level

RelayCaster enables optimized contribution and distribution of live IP streams. It delivers field-proven reliability in unmanaged IP networks. With Relaycaster, packet loss and jitter issues are a thing of the past. It allows you to replace expensive satellite links/fibers or to get rid of expensive contracts with CDN service providers.

Features & benefits

  • RelayCaster - Field-proven transmission quality

    Field-proven transmission quality

    RelayCaster can fix packet loss rates of up to 50 % and jitter issues resulting from Internet transmission.

  • RelayCaster - Low delay times

    Low delay times

    RelayCaster enables low-delay IP contribution and distribution in unmanaged IP networks, even over long-distance Internet links.

  • RelayCaster - Standardized input and output formats

    Standardized input and output formats

    RelayCaster supports standardized MPEG-TS (SPTS and MPTS) with all common audio/video codecs as input and output.

  • RelayCaster - Integrated monitoring

    Integrated monitoring

    RelayCaster shows detailed link statistics and integrated monitoring of ETR-290 continuity count (CC) errors for all incoming and outgoing streams.

  • RelayCaster - Integrated encryption

    Integrated encryption

    RelayCaster has built-in stream encryption and AES decryption for secure contribution and distribution of your live content.

  • RelayCaster - Live encoding

    Live encoding

    RelayCaster is able to live encode from SDI or HDMI sources to MPEG-2 or AVC/H.264 with adaptive bitrate selection for optimal bandwidth allocation.

  • RelayCaster - Various models

    Various models

    RelayCaster is available as a 19-inch rack-mountable server appliance, as a palm-sized embedded device, or as a software-only version for easy installation on existing servers hosted in data centers or in the cloud.

  • RelayCaster - Easy administration

    Easy administration

    RelayCaster is built on a Linux system with responsive web interface (http/https) and a free software developer kit (SDK) for XML-RPC and PHP.

Unrivalled performance

    How RelayCaster enables video distribution on IP

    Compare the way RelayCaster enables 100% error free video IP contribution on unmanaged networks such as the Internet alongside original streaming as sent and received by UDP. The packet loss rate of the network simulator is then increased step-by-step, with RelayCaster again managing error free images with no visible delay.

    Adaptive live encoding with RelayCaster

    This video demonstrates the benefits of the RelayCaster encoder for adaptive live encoding of SDI signals and IP contribution in unmanaged networks, such as the Internet. Even when applying progressively less bandwidth, the adaptive encoding of RelayCaster reduces the encoding bitrate and the stream can received without errors.
