IP Ingest Solution and Media Framework
Primestream has significantly updated its core technologies to ingest IP sources into single or multiple self-contained file formats and transcode into ProRes®, XDCAM®, DNxHD®, AVC-Intra®, and H.264 while quickly moving that content through to production, management and delivery. Users can preview proxies and live recording within a web browser, manage signal-paths and sources using pre-configured presets, create on-the-fly proxies and begin editing with growing streams in Adobe Premiere Pro. The update enables customers to capture HLS, MPEG DASH, RTP/RTSP and RTMP streams, while also allowing the capture of SMPTE 2110/2022 and Newtek® NDI IP streams such as HD-SDI and 3G-SDI using compatible hardware.
This new internet SaaS-based (software as a service) review and approval system can provides for on-site control and management with integrated communication to the cloud. The review and approval process is browser-based with annotations delivered seamlessly to the Xchange platform. Multiple workflows are supported, with comprehensive user-defined security modes to protect sensitive content such as watermarking and expiration dates. The solution can be integrated with existing Xchange systems, or can include a small on-site version of Xchange.

Primestream’s 4K/UHD end-to-end workflow covers all operations from ingest to playout. As adoption of this format increases, users can easily build on their specific 4K/UHD workflow needs. The update also includes support for HDR pass-through, live preview, and proxy generation.
A new centralized configuration module is now available across the Primestream product line with a common UI experience. This includes on-boarding, provisioning and wizard assisted installation of major parts of workflow for FORK and Xchange platforms. A built-in ‘help’ system is available that explains each available option. The guided system provides more consistently optimized solutions for customer problems.
