Features

1) Flexible Configuration
Caton Relay Server is flexible enough to build a wide range of video networks. Whether it is point-to-point, point-to-multipoint, or even multipoint-to-multipoint, Caton Relay Server makes designing workflow easy and powerful.


2) Format Independent

Caton Relay Server is frame-rate and format independent, allowing you to manage video contribution and distribution with mixed video streams of SD, HD, and 4K.

3) Protocol Translation Hub
Caton Relay Server fully supports industry standard protocols such as UDP, HTTP and RTMP, as well as having the industry leading Caton Engine for reliable cross-border and cross-continent contribution and distribution. Simultaneously, Caton Relay Server is able to transcode across protocols to make your video workflow easy.

4) Multiple I/O
Caton Relay Server support multiple network interfaces that can be individually configure for specific use, such as dual ISPs inputs or outputs for higher bandwidth or connection redundancy.  VLAN is also supported for complex video network setups.


5) Sophisticated Deployment.

 Simple Management
Caton Relay Server can be easily deployed to manage complex video contribution, yet maintain an simple management interface.  Caton Relay Server built-in web control helps you to remote control your video network.


6) Sophisticated Deployment.

Caton Relay Server can handle complicated video routing using Caton Engine R2TP and other protocal while fullying monitoring active streams.  Keep track of key parameters including bandwidth, jitter, up-time and connection status. Caton Relay Server gives a peace of mind to your video contribution solutions.
