Integration with 3rd party Encoders
Encoding systems such as Digital Rapids are common in the enterprise. Qumu provides packed integrations that can leverage these types of high end encoding systems. Qumu places a “listener” (a small piece of software) on the encoder box that allows it to be remotely controlled by the Qumu Video Control Center. Then, the encoder output can be started and stopped by Qumu and previewed via the Video Control Center interface in the same way that it can be using the Qumu Capture Studio.
