How Does haivision media gateway WORK

As we have discussed above it is a media gateway, it is used to convert the SRT stream to MPEG TS over UDP.

It supports input streams like MPEG TS Over UDP, MPEG TS Over RTP, SRT, RTSP and RTMP. Then it provides the output streams like  MPEG TS Over UDP, MPEG TS Over RTP, SRT Stream and HLS Streams.

Where HLS Stream is encrypted. It can use 128/256 bit AES Encryption.

This Haivision Media Gateway can be used for Unicast and Multicast too. It does support Forward Error Correction FEC , Closed Captioning and Time Code.

It is configured using HTTPS web User interface.

This media gateway supports SRT protocol. So we can leverage the smartness of this SRT protocol in Network Adaptive Encoding. Because it will be good for surviving in public internet specially when the network congestion is high.
