Haivision Launches Cloud-Based Solution, Haivision Hub MCR, to Accelerate Live Broadcast Productions
What if there was a way to streamline remote management to solve the challenges of production over mobile and IP networks?
Haivision is pleased to announce the launch of its exciting new SaaS platform, Haivision Hub MCR, a user-friendly cloud solution designed to seamlessly manage video transmitters, video encoders, receivers, users, and streams all from a single browser window. With Haivision Hub MCR, broadcasters can now easily manage any geographically distributed event from anywhere.
Next-gen Technology for Complete Workflow Control
The goal of Haivision Hub MCR is simple: to streamline master control room operations by providing comprehensive oversight and management of multiple concurrent contribution workflows in live broadcast, remote, and cloud productions. To do this, Haivision Hub MCR enables device and live stream monitoring, easy pairing, configuration, and control without the need to install any software.
Central to the Haivision Hub MCR workflow is Haivision StreamHub, a versatile solution for receiving IP video streams over mobile networks and the internet. Typically deployed on-premise, StreamHub can receive and decode live SST streams from Haivision Pro and Air mobile transmitters, and Haivision Rack encoders, and SRT streams from Haivision encoders and third-party sources. StreamHub is also able to receive live streams from MoJoPro and LiveGuest.
Driving Scalability and Flexibility
By centralizing the remote management of transmitters and encoders, cloud resources, and production facilities Haivision Hub provides both scalability and elasticity, making it ideal for decentralized remote production.
“Haivision Hub MCR has been developed with our customers’ demands for scalability and flexibility in mind,” said Ronan Poullaouec, VP Engineering, Remote and Wireless Systems, Haivision. “Hub MCR enables broadcasters to produce more sports, news, and live event coverage while efficiently managing their resources and ensuring a great viewer experience.”
Haivision Hub MCR allows users to:
- Easily contribute live video over mobile networks and the internet with an intuitive user interface displaying all video sources and destinations in a single grid view. Preview thumbnails enable easy identification of video content for each input and output in order to make sure that sources are being sent to the right destination.
- Remotely configure and control field units including Haivision Pro and Haivision Air transmitters, Haivision Rack video encoders, and MoJoPro mobile apps from one place, allowing on-site camera crews and remote talent to focus on capturing great live content.
- Monitor and manage StreamHub receivers and decoders with access to real-time statistics and settings and routing feeds to SDI, NDI, ST-2110, SST, SRT, and other IP outputs. Spin up and start additional StreamHub cloud instances for flexibility or when extra capacity is needed.
- Organize field units, receivers, and users into groups dedicated to specific live broadcast productions. Apply different roles and privileges on a permanent or temporary basis ensuring that users have secure access to the appropriate content.
Scale up or scale down – whether broadcasting a single event or multiple events simultaneously, Haivision Hub MCR can be easily adapted to meet demand.
