BitCaster

Broadband Integrated Telecaster

Today, one of the major challenges faced by broadcasters, news agencies, online media and social media is the coverage of breaking news and live events. Contribution of live and recorded video over satellite (SNG) is too expensive and time consuming. It also requires special infrastructure and equipment. Using IP-based solutions can overcome these constraints and provide more facilities.

SAMIM as a provider of IP-based video contribution systems, offers mid-range and enterprise level solutions for live and recorded video contribution.

The BitCaster product provides the best live video quality and latency for any portable or fixed location contribution application. Our proprietary channel bonding technology, bonds unmanaged IP networks such as cellular, Wi-Fi, satellite or public internet together to achieve high availability and high bandwidth. To attain high reliability and the continuity of streaming in case of bandwidth instability, we also use a proprietary Adaptive Bit Rate (ABR) streaming algorithm. This algorithm checks the network conditions and dynamically changes the video quality to fit the current bandwidth.
