Most interesting is how Quickstream™ manages quick switches in case of signal or Internet loss. Quickstream™ runs each playout as two systems - Main and Backup. There is no single point of failure in the configuration. In case of the transport signal loss from the main playout, Quickstream Node
switches automatically from the main playout to the backup playout. Emergency switching is built in Quickstream Node
. Quickstream™ system allows to choose among different connection methods (SDI, SRT
, UDP), multiple network interfaces, and set up backup switch triggers on bitrate drop (configurable), connection failure (configurable), and on disconnect. Such redundancy setup covers various breakdown scenarios including playout and transmission media failures. The use of dual ISPs is possible despite different addresses on network interfaces. Quickstream Node
supports COLD type redundancy or active-active mode.
