IP Video Capture/Stream

Ingest, Transcode, and Output

Multichannel IP Stream Ingest, with transcoding and restreaming functionality. Use Net-X-Code to generate proxy files, or generate them from an h.264 stream source, then edit in real time via the RTIN and play in Drastic's pure HTML5 Net-X-Player software, with full time code and multichannel playback control. Net-X-Copy can also clip out sections of the high resolution source file, based on time code points from the proxy file, to create clips for editing while the event is still recording.

Net-X-Streamer - IP Video (Re)Streamer

Net-X-Code records multiple groups of multiple channels per server. Streams primarily come in as SRT, UDP and RTP transport streams or RTSP UDP/TCP streams. Streams can be captured in a number of ways:

  • Direct capture of TS streams as they are received from RDP/UDP/SRT
  • Re-wrap into MOV, MP4 or MXF OP1a/AS-02/OpenMXF
  • Re-encode into MOV/MP4/MXF with h.264, XDCam, MPEG-2. DNxHD, ProRes, Uncompressed essence
  • HLS using TS or DASH files, with multiple adaptive bit rates
  • MPEG-4/RTIN Proxy generation for re-wrapped or re-encoded streams for play while record in our HTML5 player

Depending on the processor requirements, servers can capture up to 225 streams from a 10G NIC. If doing re encodes and/or generating proxy streams, then processor power/usage will dictate the maximum number of capture streams. 

If recording to OpenMXF, these streams can be edited while recording in Adobe Premiere, Avid Media Composer and other editing systems that support it. Captures also include Drastic's proprietary RTIN system to allow edit while record of most capture files, including AVI, MOV, MPEG-4 and all MXF variants. With Drastic's MediaReactor Workstation plugins, any recording file can be read, and clipped/exported while it is still recording.

IP Streamer

Net-X-Streamer can stream files from storage, either pre-recorded or live recording, in real time back to the network. The streams can be sent out via UDP, RTP or SRT. They must be in TS form to be streams, but Net-X-Code server's conversion system fully supports re-wrapping or re-encoding files from most broadcast/post sources into MPEG-2 or h.264 transport streams with multichannel audio, time code, metadata and closed captions.
