Bringing Micro-Local™ IP Cameras to Broadcast Production.
A seriously simple solution to tame the complexity of managing Micro-Local cameras!
Along with our recommended brands, VestraView by Videstra accepts streams and integrates control of dozens of different IP-streaming cameras deployed on both public and private networks.
V-Streamer hardware outputs four or eight genlock-capable HD-SDI signals for clean integration into production environments.
Cameras can be published on one or more websites with unique branding with up-to-the-minute static images, time lapse or live video.
You know them as SkyCams, WebCams, NetCams, CityCams, TowerCams, WeatherCams, or TrafficCams. We call them Micro-Local cameras and they bring the viewer directly into the heart of their community.
Micro-Local cameras present a live view of your city, town, and state to show your audience you are everywhere they care about. The Videstra System brings these cameras into your plant, ready for air.
The Videstra System brings IP cameras, on both public and private networks, into a true broadcast production workflow. It uses the latest technology that provides everything you need to go from camera to screen. The four-channel V-Streamer decoder offers genlock, overlays, cropping, and most importantly reliability. Its user interface is easy to use by both technical and non-technical staff.
Videstra is trusted by broadcasters coast to coast. Our users range from major top-ten markets to smaller, but sophisticated community minded stations. We boast multiple stations within major groups like Gray, Allen Media, and Nexstar. Below are a few of our customers who’ve grabbed their audience with compelling local views – all managed by their Videstra Systems.
“When the State of New York DOT rolled out IP-streaming highway cameras, our reporters and producers needed a mosaic to keep an eye on all the feeds while being able to select the specific cameras quickly. Videstra fit the bill precisely with its touch screen interface and four video outputs. Videstra redesigned the interface to precisely what we needed! We can use it for any internet stream, not just cameras. We love the built-in graphics engine. It’s proven so useful that we’ve added a traffic correspondent to our popular morning show.”
“WRAL has more than 25 IP cameras serving our market and beyond! Videstra puts control of all of them at our fingertips. The Videstra team have been great to partner with as we develop this part of our community service!”
“We chose Videstra because they are the only ones that performed all of the functions that we required.”
