Media creation and delivery is, of course, moving to IP. One of the most important benefits of the move will come when key functionality is implemented solely in software, capable of running on standard IT platforms.

StreamMaster is the perfect partner for your transition to IP playout.

Introducing StreamMaster

StreamMaster takes the remarkable functionality, graphics capability and image quality of the existing Pixel Power master control and integrated playout systems, and implements them in software to run on commodity hardware. StreamMaster is designed to support virtualisation– a channel without a box - but can also be supplied with SDI I/O to support hybrid and transitional environments.
This revolutionary approach allows broadcasters and media companies to get professional playout on air – and particularly online – quickly and at manageable cost, delivering maximum benefits from the transition to IP.

Agile architecture

StreamMaster is built on the premise of frame rate, frame size and codec agnosticism. Pixel Power undertakes to support new formats as they appear for true sustainability; that is one of the genuine benefits of a modular software system.

It also opens up a path to new pricing models. For those who still prefer a capex model then you can of course buy the product outright. But new and flexible menu-pricing models allow broadcasters and service providers to move to pay-as-you-go, matching the changing needs of the business with pricing that is directly linked to income. Users should only pay for the features they need, now and forever.

Bridging the transition

StreamMaster is designed to operate in the IP environment perhaps as part of a virtualised playout operation housed in a data centre. However, recognising the need for transition in most broadcast operations, the same software platform can run in dedicated hardware, and supports SDI I/O cards to ensure the system is as effective on today’s broadcast infrastructure as in the IP environment.
