Content Acquisition Package for Multi-Camera Live Production and Streaming

Part of CP Communications’ family of Red House Streaming STREAM packages, Multicam STREAM enables live production with up to four cameras and live streaming over Ethernet, Wi-Fi and bonded cellular networks, assuring connectivity from virtually any location. Designed for at-home production and supplying individual video streams for network distribution workflows, the plug-and-play solution provides true broadcast-quality video at resolutions to 1080p with up to 32 channels of professional audio. All camera feeds are simultaneously ingested, and can be delivered to service providers as individual SDI feeds or a single stream.

The system is built around Sony PTZ cameras and Mobile Viewpoint (MVP) encoding and decoding technology, enabling H.265 and H.264 CBR and VBR compression. IP-based camera control is enabled through a browser-based interface, which can be accessed locally or remotely through an MVP TerraLink-4C encoder.

The base Multicam STREAM package can be customized with up to four additional video inputs, various types of tally systems, Dante audio communications networking, fewer or additional embedded audio channels, and a CP wireless communications system. It’s an ideal solution for tier-2 and tier-3 remote sports coverage, live studio programming, corporate events, live music events, video podcasts, worship services, and the streaming of local news and other types of live events.
