Open Broadcast Systems Partners With Cerberus Tech

News Image
Open Broadcast Systems and Cerberus Tech have teamed up to deliver live broadcast quality video to and from different campuses that make up Trinity Fellowship Church in Texas.

Trinity Fellowship was already streaming video content through its website. However, with the addition of remote campuses, the church wanted to enable churchgoers in its remote locations to view the live feed from the main campus. Having a bi-directional feed makes it possible to supply Quality of Experience streams back to the main site so that Trinity can troubleshoot any video and production issues at the remote sites.

Cerberus developed units to be housed on the main site and remote campuses. As well as conducting extensive tests, Cerberus continues to provide ongoing support for the system. The unit at the broadcast site consists of an OBE C-100 Encoder and Decoder from Open Broadcast Systems and a Zixi video streaming platform. Because both of these solutions are software based, Cerberus was able to house them all in the same hardware unit.

The OBE C-100 Encoder and Decoder supports high-quality, low-latency video transport. At a much lower-cost than comparable solutions, the C-100 allows flexible deployment of contribution services in pure software or on a wide variety of high-density chassis.

Brandon Newburg, Trinity Fellowship, commented: "The live streams have proven very popular with our congregations and have helped to enhance the sense of community amongst the entire congregation. The fact that the live streams simply work is extremely important to us, meaning we don’t need an entire team on hand to manage them during broadcast."

Chris Clarke, CEO, Cerberus, added: "Having worked with both Open Broadcast Systems and Zixi for a number of years, we were confident that those solutions would deliver the right workflow needed for this implementation at a reasonable price point. We were also confident that once setup and thoroughly tested, the solutions would run smoothly and need very little input on site."

Cerberus will be at NAB Show New York from 16th - 17th October.
