MultiScreen – instrumental monitoring system / multiviewer for UNLIMITED number of TV- and Radio- channels            

Stream MultiScreen system is intended for simultaneous visual and instrumental monitoring of multiple video and audio sources in real-time using one or several LCD-panels in poly-screen mode. 

Having been based on successful combination of versatile features, which include multi-channel and multi-format abilities and high-level reliability, MultiScreen system has been implemented in the projects of largest Satellite and Cable Head-End operators, TV Channels and OTT operators.

Supported inputs:

Stream MultiScreen server represents an effective media platform, which provides simultaneous visual and instrumental control of unlimited number of TV- and Radio- channels. The number of physical inputs per 1 server depends on the installed input card.
