RTMP Deployment 2021 -
do you need to continue deploying RTMP?
The ability to manage RTMP is shrinking as Flash disappears from browsers and other end users, but in professional contexts, RTMP is widely used and for customers who have systems based on RTMP, robust deployment infrastructure is needed. We can help.
Rackfish provides robust options for deploying RTMP streams on a new redundant deployment platform.
Why Rackfish RTMP?
Rackfish RTMP deployment is based on a redundant infrastructure where nothing is left to chance.
Automatic failover between inbound and outbound streams is possible.
What is RTMP?
RTMP stands for Real Time Messaging Protocol and is a protocol primarily used to distribute video (but also audio and data), originally in Macromedia/Adobe Flash. RTMP is stable, fast and can deliver low-latency video where delay for one second is possible, compared to, for example, the more modern HLS where the delay is usually measured in tens of seconds and up to one minute.
Who can use RTMP?
RTMP is an open specification that does not require Flash. Stability and low latency mean that it has come to be widely used to deliver video to the net (ingest) and distribute between equipment. Most streaming-ready cameras, software, and the like can deliver RTMP. Rackfish Live, Streamio Live, Rackfish RTMP distribution are products from Rackfish that supports RTMP.
Streaming to end users?
Support for RTMP in browsers is rapidly disappearing as Flash, which is required for the browser to download video, loses support. In cases where there is support, active actions (download plugin, launch plugin) are often required for it to work so this type of use is no longer recommended.
