Achieve scaleable and reliable Gateway for live IP video channels routing across any IP network

More and more video feeds are transmitted live over various IP transmission links making it complex for organisations to efficiently and reliably manage those feeds. ChannelLink allows you to deliver IP content anywhere, anytime with the ease of use of legacy baseband video matrices.

ChannelLink acts as a central hub where IP channels from the field can be received and retransmitted live reliably, acting as an efficient gateway across any IP network. It is especially well suited for stream management, routing, rebroadcasting or IPTV stream reflection over WAN/the Internet. It can receive any number of input streams and translate them into a multicast or unicast MPEG Transport Stream over UDP (UDP TS) or a SRT protected stream. Its future-proof design ensures support of more transport protocols in the future allowing it to stay ahead of the game. To date we can support SRT, Zixi, RTSP, RTMP, UDP/RTP TS.

ChannelLink ensures full compatibility with third-party encoders and decoders. Compatible with MPEG-2, H.264 and HEVC codecs, the gateway is compression standard agnostic and is engineered to evolve and support future transport protocols. The user-friendly interface is designed to simplify channel source-to-destination routing.

VITEC encoders and decoders provide the capability to encrypt the audio and video stream. ChannelLink handles the management of such encrypted streams to secure your content end-to-end.
