Sputnik is suitable for management and re-streaming of Teradek encoders, decoders and mobile applications. A Cloud Sputnik Streaming Server offers you a lot more than streaming via On-demand one:
- Up to 5 Teradek sources such as encoders, decoders and Airmix app inbound streams;
- Enables remote configuration for Teradek encoders and decoders;
- Supports the following stream modes: MPEG-TS, SRT, RTSP, HLS, and RTMP/S (including Youtube, Facebook, Twitch, Vimeo, IBM Video Streaming, LinkedIn, Wowza, Livestream, EasyLive.io)
NOTE: HLS and RTMP/S requires the output stream be H.264
- Restreaming H.264/H.265 video with AAC audio at any resolution and bitrate;
NOTE: If the input stream is H.265 and you require web browser playback support, then you will need to select for a server upgrade
- Cloud recording and file downloading;
- CoreTV streaming with voice and text chat collaboration (Click here for more info);
- Supports Teradek apps (Click here for more info);
- The cost varies from $75 to $50/mo for extra Cloud Sputnik depending on your Core monthly subscription or $2/hr;
- Multi-destination streaming.
