IO from Cerberus Tech is a software-based live IP video switching platform. Operating point-to-point, or point-to-multipoint, the IP broadcast application allows for seamless switching between; RTP, UDP, RIST, SRT, RTMP and HLS delivery protocols. It can be scaled to unlimited outputs and used within a device, data centre or cloud environment.
IO utilises industry standard IP methods, for secure, reliable open delivery. It enables automatic switching between open video transport stream protocols, for in/out video and audio contribution and distribution. This allows users to seamlessly convert on-premises video traffic to cloud facing protocols. Featuring full management and monitoring capabilities via a simple and intuitive user interface.
IO was built using the application tool Docker, which accelerates development workflows with an integrated pipeline and consolidated application components. IO defines the environment in which the software runs, without limiting the user to specific operating systems or hardware. This allows for greater flexibility for users to deliver content securely to partner services, in any format including Remote Production, Channel Partners, Broadcasters, and CDN's as well as global head ends.
Compatible with any other device using the same standards, IO offers interoperability without the need for proprietary software. IO can be installed as a container on hardware, virtual machine or cloud environments, as well as behind organisational firewalls. IO can be used as either a sending or receiving device. Or it can sit in-between broadcasting devices, acting as a central hub for content distribution.
