ScaleEngine Switchboard System

Stream Switchboards

Use a ScaleEngine switchboard output stream to keep a stream live, and seamlessly switch between incoming streams. Change from one stream priority to another, switching instantly from a low priority placeholder channel to your live feed and back again.

With our switchboard system, you have one output stream created from any number of input streams, arranged by priority. Mix between channel loops as the base content, and direct live streams from encoders as the priority content.

A switchboard output stream has automatic fallback, so it will switch to the next active stream, when any currently active incoming stream goes offline. Use this to make sure your stream never goes offline, by having your live stream fall back to an always on channel loop. Keeping a stream running 24/7 can be essential for live pay-per-view and subscription content owners, as well as cable head-end feeds.
