Video streams



  • Hi, I'm working on video distribution project, we transport input feed from sdi over fiber with ip units (for this application we use only Ethernet channel) to the switch and then to several server nodes, we came to the point when security became a factor, so we need to protect our video streams and we decided to use OAuth scheme, currently Im thinking how embed oauth token into video stream PDUs, do you have any suggestion for me?



  • Firewall off the video streams from the outside and only allow authorized clients to access the network?



  • Depends on the application.
    You're only using HD-SDI not 3G, right? How many streams to how many sinks? Are those streams transport/distribution only or do clients actually watch those streams?

    We've had great success with JustAddPower 2G+ HD-SDI TO HDMI TRANSMITTER IP streaming devices. The feed is encrypted, though it can be shown with each of their receivers without further authentication as long as they are on the same segment, probably a VLAN.
