q.air performs the playout not only of prerecorded content but also live video sources. Any available live source can be scheduled in the traffic UI. The operator can control whether the content of one or many live sources will be shown, skipped, or shall end using the controls of the automation UI. Additionally, the operator can add secondary events like real-time graphics, EPG data, and SCTE-35 markers to the on-air live content.
Live source feeds can be delivered to the cloud using protocols like SRT, RTMP, RTMPS, RTSP/RTP, RTP over UDP, MPEG-TS over UDP.
