SAPEC Integrates SRT Protocol to Optimize Streaming Performance

The LAGUNA Media Processor (LMP) by SAPEC now includes SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) protocol, optimizing streaming performance over unpredictable networks. Thanks to this SRT open-source protocol, the LAGUNA solutions can now carry out secure, high-quality and low latency video over public IP networks (internet).

SRT is an ideal solution for video transport over public IP networks, reducing the costs from UDP and FEC. Applied at the endpoints of the video link as part of the stream flow, SRT protocol delivers the highest quality and lowest latency video. It adapts to network conditions in real time, compensating for jitter and bandwidth fluctuations due to existing network congestion. Thanks to the SRT’s error recovery mechanism, packet loss is minimized and end-to-end AES security encryption is supported.

SAPEC_Laguna DUAL_media processor_TEVIOS

With this new feature, the LAGUNA Media Processor offers broadcasters even more possibilities. For example, transport up to 8 HD video signals multiplexed (MPTS) or independently (STPS) with one device (1U) over the public internet in low latency. Plus, store different layouts with the 8 signals configured independently as either encoder or decoder.

Contact us for more information about how SRT protocol optimizes streaming performance in SAPEC solutions.

Solutions for Remote Commentary by Intinor :

Intinor brings together its Direkt Link and Direkt router to create a robust solution for remote commentary in horse racing.

When approached by a German company to link their operation at the racetrack with their commentators back home, Intinor delivered a solution. The overall goal was a fully integrated-IP-workflow including remote IP-switching/mixing. The commentators are given one preview stream and one stream to comment on. Only the audio, then, gets streamed back to the studio.

Intinor_Remote Commentary_case study_TEVIOS

Intinor’s Direkt router is critical in this solution. Direkt router allows users to receive, send, and create multiple multiview streams. It also does clean feed forwarding, mixing and switching, pushing and pulling streams with added GFX. Thanks to Intinor’s open API, this concept allows users like those covering horse racing to fully customize and automate the scheduled IP-workflow.
