Adaptive Bitrate Streaming and Advanced Encryption on Either Side of the Firewall
Automatically scale video playback for any digital device. Provide network managed, packet level monitoring and control of multiple data streams from up to four diversity receive sites simultaneously.
Troll’s Video Network Server (VNS) is designed to decode, transcode and distribute secure IP video and data over public or private networks. The VNS incorporates advanced server-side encryption to protect video and data on both sides of the firewall.
Troll’s VNS ingests, decrypts and processes multiple incoming IP streams from remote antenna sites. A typical scenario could include multiple airborne and ground vehicles simultaneously sending IP video and data to one or more antenna sites. Each site provides 360° coverage and can optionally track airborne or ground assets to the limits of Line-of-Sight (LoS). The VNS manages each IP stream from multiple inputs and multiple locations merging each input into a cohesive data stream for every mission platform. This seamless hand-off of live video coverage between different mission vehicles, antenna inputs and remote sites makes it possible to create uninterrupted, streams of video and data over large operational areas in real-time.
By adding additional receivers to existing antenna sites, the system can accommodate as many vehicles as necessary with nominal increases in cost and turn-around time. The VNS also provides built-in networking and control that includes RF spectrum monitoring, diagnostics and test.
Video access, control and monitoring is provided on both sides of the fire wall. Troll’s network server can act as a network hub providing video access to network users or cloud-based, managed Internet users or groups. Troll’s web server application makes it secure and easy to manage access to encrypted video over the internet and smart devices. The VNS provides standard H.264 video transcoded resolutions of 160p, 360p and 720p, that can be automatically optimized for bandwidth availability.
