Frequently asked questions about remote video production with Video Transport, the most straight-forward point-to-point streaming tool.
As of today, VT Publisher, VT Receiver, VT Server and VT Guest are available for Windows only.
But the Guest Link, the Web Preview, and the Control Panel can be run in a browser on a Mac.
Video Transport supports 4:4:4 and 10-bit color space while using Blackmagic Design capture cards. 4:2:2 is not supported.
However, we suggest you to deploy a separate intercom system (ideally, running on separate hardware): for instance, if you lose the video feed and need to troubleshoot, you will also lose the intercom and won’t be able to do that. So it’s better for reliability reasons to separate video transport and intercom. One solution we suggest is Unity Intercom, but there are others available as well.
Even if you set 50 Mbps as your streaming bitrate, the encoder will use only the maximum bandwidth that is needed for this particular content. For instance, if the input is an upscaled SD stream or a white wall in 4K, a lot less bandwidth will be required to transmit this stream in it's original quality.
If you have made sure that you have the bandwidth you need on both locations, the reason may be that the connection to our TURN server is not good enough. If this is something you observe, please reach out and we will look for a solution. This is valid only for WebRTC connections.
Yes, and there are two reasons:
- 2.The apps use the SRT protocol with tons of improvements done by our team. In the browsers, we are limited to WebRTC.
The benefit of the Guest Link is that it works on all platforms including mobile devices.
You can use Dante Virtual Soundcard in WDM mode or ASIO modes and use Dante audio as the External audio for video sources or Extra Audio Output device.
Video Transport's latest version of connection protocol has numerous improvements: faster connection establishment speed, a more robust packet transmission algorithm, and a bottom layer for the future connection bonding option.
One essential part of the VT 2.0 connection protocol is the introduction of VT Gateways to establish connections in those cases when a direct connection can not be established.
