Change over

Always be on air. Detect failures in your workflow, and switch to back-up signals.

Case Study: Trace TV

TRACE originally turned to OpenHeadend when it was looking to fulfill its legal obligation of keeping a program log for each one of its channels, and now, OpenHeadend solution is the hub of its workflow, used for ingest, processing and multi-platform stream delivery.

The level of security achieved is impressive. Errors detection is frame accurate and the system immediately switches to a back-up playlist, which offers the same video quality than the main playlist. Thanks to this quality of service, we can carry our maintenance tasks with great serenity, knowing that it is transparent for our subscribers.
