From the Panasonic Connect Q&A:
How does KAIROS help you achieve your goals? What differentiates KAIROS from other technologies on the market?
We adopted KAIROS to automate our 4K broadcast streaming studio and expand our remote capabilities for future productions. Our teams were constrained to the studio when producing an event instead of having the freedom to walk around outside and find new, creative shots to capture. With KAIROS, we can do just that. The solution helped our team streamline operations with more remote oversight and automation, which in turn allows our crews the freedom to focus more on creative tasks such as shot development and strategy. Unlike other technologies on the market, KAIROS offers flexibility at an affordable price point. It also supports SMPTE ST 2110, which is more efficient and offers lower bandwidth compared to other IP-based media transport protocols. As a result, we can run more streams at once and have smarter workflows.
How does KAIROS support livestreaming?
In the LiveX studio, we have six AW-UE50 4K/30p PTZ Cameras and the Tecnopoint Robotic Camera System to support the increasing need for creative shots. KAIROS, alongside the AW-UE50 PTZs, supports Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) protocol for 4K/60p video streaming. This provides stability while transmitting high-quality video, even in unstable network environments. When our teams are on-site filming an event, we can stream video content back to the studio via SRT and we can control where the video feeds are delivered. SRT protocol also ensures secure delivery of the streams. With end-to-end 128/256 bit AES encryption, valuable content is protected, which is a necessity in today’s digital world. The protocol’s low latency and low bandwidth help deliver great viewing experiences with no lag.
