Live Video

Introduction

Avoid stale signage and direct your viewer’s attention to the screens with the Live Video App. In just a few simple steps, your screen will become an impressive media outlet.

How Does Live Video Work?

Using a MPEG-2 Transport Stream Live Video over UDP, the live video feed will first be added into the Live Video section of CCHD, and then added to a Template. Your player must be able to reach the source of the live video over the network.
For device specifics please reach out to your Account Manager for details. 

How does Source Input Work?

Certain devices within our player portfolio allow users to take an external source’s digital or analog input directly to their digital signage. Users can then assign this input to a template within their CommandCenterHD campaigns. The source can be any video device.
