How It Works

Once the analogue TV signals enter the system, they are transformed into multicast streams and distributed through the system components via Multicast Switches. Besides the live streaming of the content, it is delivered to video servers for providing access in time-shift mode and to RTP Retransmission Server aka Fast Switch Server which stores last X minutes (usually, size of the buffer varies between 10 and 30 seconds) streamed from each TV channel.
