Industry engineers have always believed that you need a wired Internet connection to stream video LIVE over the Internet, due to bandwidth restrictions and maintaining an uninterruptable connection. One of the features of Tech Werks EZcaster encoder is the ability to PUSH a video stream to one of Tech Werk’s video servers. Several other manufactures can PUSH video to a server but, if there is an interruption to the video stream or the Internet connection, the LIVE video stream stops. Tech Werk’s engineers have designed a system so when the connection between the EZcaster encoder and one of Tech Werk’s video servers is interrupted, the “system” is smart enough to reconnect and continue streaming. This interruption can be as long as 4 seconds without the viewer missing a single frame of video.
This technology makes it possible to stream LIVE over WIFI and 3G wireless networks. “We spent months researching and testing several different options to stream LIVE over WIFI and 3G networks and believe we have selected the best solution for all of our clients,” said Bill Baker, President of Tech Werks. “We actually have two solutions: First- the WIFI option is built-in to the EZcaster, for $100. This gives our clients the ability to use the EZcaster in places that a wired Internet connection is unavailable or the cost is not practical. Second- is our support for the new MIFI system. The MiFi is a 3G, WIFI access point allowing 5 devices to be connected. The EZcaster connects to the MIFI using WIFI and the MIFI connects to the Internet via 3G. By supporting the MiFID, our clients can select a wireless carrier of their choice, AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon wireless.”
These solutions provide our customers with tremendous freedom to create videos almost anywhere.
