Mushroom Networks Integrates Streamer 3G/4G bonding Solution with Paladin
Sep 20, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Mushroom Networks, a company focusing on Broadband Bonding technology, announced that Paladin Innovators has integrated a Mushroom Networks' Streamer 3G/4G bonding solution into the Paladin, a live video streaming solution that lets anyone pro or not create HDTV-quality production broadcasts.
According to a release, Combining Mushroom Networks' patented Broadband Bonding technology, which bonds multiple broadband access technologies into a single pipe, with the Paladin, means video streams can be achieved at live events with an ease of setup and lower cost than has yet been seen.
The Paladin is a turnkey streaming system that works with multiple cameras, from a Red Camera to an iPhone, via four HD-SDI inputs or through Firewire, USB, and Ethernet inputs. The system allows for live switching and can be controlled through Paladin's Producer iPad app. The Paladin is compact about the size of a ream of paper that fits in a backpack so broadcasters, vloggers, and others can shoot and stream live video from almost anywhere. With the addition of Mushroom Networks technology, however, live event producers break through the limits associated with single wireless card Internet access, a limitation that significantly impacts the quality and reliability of the live streams.
Mushroom said the partnership with the Company, which offers the integration of their Streamer 3G/4G bonding solution to the Paladin, means users can leverage multiple wireless access cards and achieve a much higher-bandwidth connection for higher resolution and higher frame rates. Streamer uses Mushroom Networks' bonding technology that is optimized to stream video to the Web via the aggregated 3G/4G wireless data cards, providing professional-grade reliability while the Paladin users stream live video.
"We have had great success integrating the Mushroom Networks' Streamer with the Paladin in some very challenging live productions," said Tom Curran, Paladin Innovators' CEO. "The capability and incredible technical support provided by Mushroom Networks made us very eager to seek out a closer collaboration and integration of their technology and ours. Most important, this is great news for anyone that wants to stream their live events at resolutions they wouldn't have had in their reach previously. Bonding multiple wireless data cards amps up the bandwidth and boosts reliability so there's no degradation to the quality or reliability of any broadcast."
"The partnership with Paladin is another example of how our Broadband Bonding technology can easily and cost-effectively deliver ample bandwidth and high-quality cellular and data connectivity for any application, including live video delivery," said Cahit Akin, co-founder and CEO of Mushroom Networks.
