ZeeVee adds support for popular RTMP streaming protocol
ZeeVee has added support for streaming protocol RTMP to its ZyPerMX2 and ZyperMX4 multi-source H.264 encoders.
RTMP is used for live streaming on sites Facebook Live, YouTube Live and other popular content distribution networks. ZeeVee says the encoders, which can stream two sources or four sources simultaneously over IP networks, would now be able to support different sets of multiple streaming formats simultaneously for each source channel, expanding the range of devices each channel can support.
The models have also been upgraded to support audio compression format AAC as well as MP2 and AC3 formats. Current users of the ZyPerMX2 and ZyperMX4 can download software free of charge from the ZeeVee website to gain use of the new features. The encoders now support four streaming protocols – RTMP, HLS, RTP, and UDP.
ZeeVee also announced a new web-based player, the ZyperMX Player, for use with the two encoders.
The new web-based player is also available with an optional Electronic Programming Guide, which dealers can offer to customers for a monthly or annual fee. The programming guide is customisable.
