September 16th, 2020 – Nomad and Videon come together to provide an easy-to-operate cloud-based live video management and content distribution solution that uses Videon’s low-latency high performance encoding device.
The sudden shift to remote streaming events due to the pandemic has caught both content providers and event organizers unprepared to deliver live high quality streaming and video-on-demand services. To date, organizations have been struggling to cope with this major change in their communications model with ad-hoc implementations of services originally designed for either low-quality broad consumer use, or costly systems out of reach for most companies.
The new partnership between the Nomad platform and Videon’s EdgeCaster encoder creates a high-performance, low-cost, low-latency solution for organizational video services. Both video service customer and vendor organizations can use the Nomad / EdgeCaster solution to stream, capture, manipulate, manage and distribute high-quality streams to their audience.
Organizations simply plug in the EdgeCaster to the Internet and connect their video devices to the HDMI port. Nomad automatically detects and securely registers the EdgeCaster device as a new input allowing companies to begin live video streaming, securely, to their audience within minutes of unboxing.
Nomad leverages the enterprise-class capabilities of AWS Elemental Media Services, such as MediaStore and MediaPackage to process and deliver EdgeCaster video streams globally and securely via AWS Cloudfront. Furthermore, Nomad’s live channel and device management capabilities provides an easy-to-operate intuitive platform for managing many EdgeCaster devices simultaneously… scaling with the needs of the audience.
