- Compact high-density design.
Video Receiver, Decoder & Transcoder
The StreamHub packs a rich set of input IP protocols and can receive up to 16 concurrent incoming Safe Stream Transport (SST) streams from remote AVIWEST encoders or transmitters (PRO Series, RACK Series, AIR Series, HE4000, MOJOPRO) or third-party systems through RTMP, RTSP, RTP, SRT, NDI, HLS, TS/IP streaming protocols.
Up to 8 videos can be simultaneously decoded thanks to 8 SDI outputs with a Genlock input. It also features video encoding and transcoding capability, allowing to adapt incoming feeds to the desired output format.
Point to Point & Point to Multipoint Distribution
The StreamHub offers multiple output streaming protocols (AVIWEST’s SST, RTMP, RTMPS, RTSP/RTP, HLS, TS/IP, SRT, NDI) allowing video contents to be freely distributed over virtually any IP network.
Up to 32 IP outputs are supported to re-stream the video contents over LAN or WAN to CDNs, Media Servers, Streaming Platforms, Social Networks, IRDs or other StreamHub units.
Live and File-based Workflows
In addition, to live workflows, the StreamHub receiver allows you to manage your file-based workflows. Video content files can be sent from AVIWEST transmitters and securely stored on the StreamHub receivers or an external location thanks to the automatic FTP push functionality.
The StreamHub combines the functions of a live video recorder and a file transcoder, enabling video professionals to efficiently adapt video files to each environment.
Video Return & Intercom
Easily send on-air programs to operators in the field, teleprompter information coming from the studio, or live content received from other AVIWEST transmitters. Any live content received by a StreamHub receiver can be sent to any AVIWEST transmitters connected. No other equipment is required. The StreamHub enables Control Room operators to communicate with remote journalists and Field-operators over up to 16 independent two-way audio channels.
StreamHub is now vendor-agnostic with third-party transmitters
The new software version of our iconic StreamHub transceiver is now vendor-agnostic and universally compatible with third-party transmitters. Using StreamHub, you can receive transmissions from various types of transmitters, enabling you to quickly, easily, and simultaneously share high-quality live content with multiple affiliates or other broadcast facilities.
The StreamHub provides you with a scalable and tailored video solution for managing and sharing live streams from multiple transmitters via a single interface. With StreamHub, you can manage multiple streams and distribute them to multiple affiliates from a single point of control. Having the power to interconnect to numerous third-party live transmission tools instantaneously saves your time and money.
Knowing that you are often on the go and working from remote locations, StreamHub offers a web-based user interface with a video thumbnail view. This tool allows you to build a live video multiview composed with all input streams, which can be fed to affiliates. The multiview can be enriched with overlay information for each source, such as audio level and transmitter name. The main advantage of this capability is that it reduces data while feeding affiliates with multiple streams, allowing affiliates to choose a primary feed from those available.
“By streamlining their production workflow and optimizing costs with our flagship StreamHub transceiver, broadcasters can offer an increased amount of live video content and boost viewer engagement. During a live event, broadcasters need to ensure there is no delay. Viewers do not want to miss a second of the action, especially for live sports. Choosing AVIWEST’s live video solution with state-of-the-art HEVC encoding will ensure high-quality video at minimum bit rates with low latency.”
Ronan Poullaouec, chief technology officer at AVIWEST
StreamHub features our patented and Emmy® Award-winning SST (Safe Streams Transport) protocol, which reliably combines multiple algorithms, including FEC, ARQ, and VBR rate control, to provide a high quality of service. StreamHub’s universality enables it to support a variety of streaming protocols, such as RTMP, RTSP/RTP, HLS and TS/IP, to ensure that broadcasters can freely distribute video content over the public internet and virtually any IP networks, including 3G, 4G, and 5G.
AVIWEST’s transceiver can be deployed on-premises or operated as a cloud-based service tailored to any news or live video production organization’s workflow and operational constraints, making it ideally suited for today’s ever-evolving multiscreen video delivery world.
