softGear ™ Streaming Gateway

The softGear Streaming Gateway offers a reliable and secure bridge connecting an on-premise facility with a remote cloud production. The content is distributed over a reliable, low-latency connection between on-premise and the cloud.

Whether on-premise NDI content needs to be teleported to the cloud or SDI baseband must be converted to CDI streams in the cloud, softGear Streaming Gateway provides a reliable solution.

A Solution for Every Stream

Navigating the myriad of compression codecs and protocols for effective streaming is made simple and efficient using intuitive UIs to access a complete suite of capabilities. Easily solve for connectivity challenges and optimizations using the Dashboard interface. Get consistency in your multi-site deployments.

Cots and Cloud Deployment

Deploying the same product on COTS hardware on premise and in a Cloud ensures interoperability and offers the same UI minimizing the time to air. Content producers will appreciate reliable transport that abstracts the necessity of expertise on Cloud delivery methods and associated details simplifying remote contribution and remote production workflows.

Common Platform

The SoftGear Streaming Gateway is built on softGear, which gives flexibility to the rapidly changing needs of today’s broadcasters, providing simultaneous encoding and decoding built on a scalable microservice platform ideal for on-premise or cloud deployment. Leverage the versatility, field upgradability, and robustness of the softGear platform.
