Evertz has announced the launch of evertz.io-Stream, a “revolutionary streaming and playout SaaS service delivered completely from the public cloud using the evertz.ioplatform”.
The company said the new service is an advanced streaming and playout service designed to meet the needs of both OTT and direct-to-consumer (DTC) streaming applications while also offering the features and functions required for more traditional linear broadcast channels.
evertz.io and evertz.io-Stream use “scalable serverless microservices to simplify and streamline cloud based linear stream creation/distribution and enable new content monetisation strategies”.
“As content consumption and viewing habits continue to change, the media and entertainment market continues to have an insatiable appetite for monetising content in new and innovative ways including the use of digital distribution platforms like YouTube TV, amongst many others,” said Dan Turow, vice president of file based solutions at Evertz. “The agility, flexibility, and scalability of a cloud native SaaS platform like evertz.io and a service like evertz.io-Stream are critical to monetising content, reducing time to market, and avoiding some of the traditional large technology learning curves.”
The service includes support for video, audio, captions and graphics insertion and offers a range of video streaming inputs and outputs including the ability to stream in 4K UHD with HDR and support for major video transport standards such as RIST, SRT and ZIXI.
