Intinor has developed two video encoding series of its encoder Direkt Link that generate high quality live broadcasting over the internet and other IP networks. Direkt Link Encoders are used for field or facility contribution, sending to other Intinor or 3rd party receivers.
Intinor Direkt Link is exceptionally simple to use and very reliable thanks to its ability to bond transport over LTE, 3G, 4G, KA/KU-SAT and public and private IP networks. Distinctively, a Direkt Link is able to read a KA-SAT modem and adapt dynamically between 3/4G and KA-SAT.
A key feature of the Direkt Link is its ability to have multiple encoders working on a high and low encode for sending to broadcasters and online platforms such as twitch at exactly the same time.
Intinor Direkt Routers are in facility routers specifically designed to receive IP streams from the Direkt Link encoders and redistribute over IP networks or to break out incoming streams out to their Direkt Receiver or via SDI, HLS, NDI etc.
Direkt Routers have the ability to receive up to 36 IP inputs, not only from the Direkt Link but also HLS, RTMP inputs from the likes of Mist, Wowza or other CDNs. Where other services ask you to pay into a Cloud Service a Direkt Router is already integrated and well worth the investment.
Further uses for the Direkt Routers would be to re-encode IP streams between Unicast and Multicast, Add/Remove error correction or receive IP stream ‘a’ and re-encode to stream ‘b’. Direkt Routers also have the ability to add logo and graphics overlays to the stream.
The Direkt Router also provides support for remote commentary by providing clean feeds with talkback links and return video.
Where the Direkt Router is Intinor’s swiss army knife to receive any IP signal and re-encode, the role of the Receiver is simple, it’s role is to receive IP inputs from the Direkt Link or MPEG or H.264 transport streams and convert them to an SDI output.
