Joint Solution Leverages the Power of AVIWEST Transmitters and the Scalability of LucidLink Filespaces
SAINT-GRÉGOIRE, France — Dec. 20, 2021 — AVIWEST, a leading provider of live video contribution solutions, and LucidLink, a provider of innovative SaaS solutions delivering high-performance remote collaboration to the world’s largest media and entertainment brands, have teamed up to offer an easy-to-use cloud video production and delivery solution.
With LucidLink Filespaces and AVIWEST’s bonded cellular solution, broadcasters can capture camera feeds, deliver data to the cloud, and gain global access to the same file, with real-time collaboration from anywhere. The solution includes AVIWEST field units, as well as AIR Series and PRO Series transmitters, allowing video professionals to broadcast premium-quality video live over bonded IP networks, including 5G, 4G, 3G, Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and satellite, wherever the action is. Using the record and progressive forward function, broadcasters can record video feeds on the transmitter’s SD card and optimize their time by forwarding the file progressively while the recording is still in progress.
“The partnership between LucidLink and AVIWEST enables powerful new remote workflows within the M&E industry,” said Scott Miller, director, business development, at LucidLink. “LucidLink provides immediate global access and sets a new standard for scalability, bringing increased efficiency to remote delivery and storage.”
A LucidLink client installed on the AVIWEST StreamHub transceiver enables access to a growing number of files in real time from multiple cameras. The files are immediately available for editing during ingest. LucidLink provides a secure centralized data repository in the cloud that is infinitely scalable and globally accessible. Users gain instant access to a file simply by connecting to Filespaces and can edit files using any NLE application directly from the cloud. LucidLink allows data to be accessed even while it is growing, at cloud scale.
AVIWEST’s StreamHub receiver, decoder, and distribution platform can be deployed as an in-house 1U server or as a cloud service, bringing simplicity, flexibility, and efficiency to any news, live video production, or live video distribution organization.
“We are excited to bring an innovative solution to market that fully meets the needs of video professionals,” said Ronan Poullaouec, chief technology officer at AVIWEST. “This joint solution dramatically accelerates content production and enables remote production with cloud-hosted solutions.”
