Atomos and Streamonix have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the development, deployment and testing of a next-generation, real-time streaming Pilot Project that links Atomos Cloud Studio to the Streamonix Media Streaming Federation (MSF) test network.
For the Pilot Project the MSF will operate as a one-to-many, real-time accelerator and delivery utility for streams produced in Atomos Cloud Studio. Through the Streamonix Cloud-to-MSF interface, Atomos Cloud Studio will offload live streaming to the MSF, enhancing the live streaming experience of Atomos users. The Pilot Project’s MSF will span select global locations and transmit live HD and 4K video streams from the Atomos Cloud to a large global audience with less than one second of latency.
The Pilot Project will demonstrate the ultra-low-latency, ultra-high bit-rate streaming capability of Streamonix technology and its suitability as the foundation for global-scale, real-time streaming applications such as live sports and entertainment, digital daily deliveries, and ProRes RAW production video file transfers. By leveraging the real-time power of the MSF, Atomos will explore the cost savings and production benefits that accrue from delegating live streaming work to a dedicated streaming utility.
“The demand for low-latency, high bit-rate streaming is rising rapidly across many of our markets, and is driving the need for high performance, cost-effective live streaming solutions that can enhance and extend Atomos Cloud Studio”, said Trevor Elbourne, CEO of Atomos. “This pilot project with Streamonix gives us an opportunity to evaluate the potentially game-changing Streamonix solution and to work together to redefine the cloud-based video production market.”
“Atomos has transformed the way digital film and video content is made and is now a leading innovator in the cloud-based video production market”, said Bradley Hankinson, CEO of Streamonix. “Working with Atomos to link their Atomos Cloud Studio with our MSF enables us to demonstrate the vital benefits of our scalable, cost-effective, secure, ultra-low-latency real-time streaming technology. This positions the MSF as a real-time delivery utility for content produced in the cloud.”
