Stream Circle is introducing Network and Broadcast Edition of its playout automation platform.
Stream Circle as a software defined automation and playout platform is on the market for years. We are proud pioneers of use cloud for channel automation. During discussions with our clients and partners we’ve been asked multiple times to support clients running traditional Broadcast (SDI based) infrastructure for standard TV broadcast channels as well as new media projects demanding Network (IP based) infrastructure compatible with Internet delivery mechanisms. It is needless to say that these groups are looking similar from longer distances while they are completely different from inside.
The Stream Circle team has decided to address this demand and introduce two specific versions. These software setups comply with requirements originating from either Network or Broadcast infrastructure operators.
Listening to specific needs and expectations of these groups of users the Network and Broadcast Editions are based on the same software architecture while providing different functionalities:
