OVERVIEW

Finally, a compact solution for all of your IP transmission and conversions needs.  Introducing CatonXchange.

 

A complete IP conversion and transmission appliance with built-in transport stream analysis, and recording.  Powered by The Caton Engine, global IP delivery is now easy and affordable.

 

CatonXchange brings both ASI and Ethernet I/O into a single appliance with the ability to simultaneously transmit out to Content Delivery Networks (CDNs), record external USB storage and other Caton Devices.

 

CatonXchange utilizes the Caton Engine’s R2TP protocol for world-class reliable transmission of carrier-quality video over any IP network. Global delivery of the most demanding video now plugs and plays. 

 

With full I/O support of major IP and ASI standards, CatonXchange also supports a wide variety of IO configurations including HTTP, ASI, RTMP/RTMP-S, and UDP.  A user-friendly, browser-based interface allows for easy configuration and remote control.

 

CatonXchange is compatible with leading CDN solutions like YouTube, Facebook, and Twitch, and opens up new video transmission workflows in areas like live events, houses of worship, corporate communications, e-medical, eSports and education.

Powered by The Caton Engine

Caton Engine’s R2TP is an IP-based transport protocol designed specifically to solve QoS/QoE problems for live data transmission over the Internet. Applying highly advanced network congestion control techniques, R2TP maximizes Bandwidth Utilization Ratio (BUR) for high-quality content over nearly any given bandwidth. 

 

R2TP applies highly efficient error correction  mechanisms by combining a variant Automatic Repeat Request [ARQ] retransmit method and Caton’s Adaptive Network Code (ANC) engine to ensure highly reliable transmissions with lower latency.
