Types of video transmission with Flussonic Media Server

Here we will introduce you to the terms for the types of video transmission with the participation of Flussonic Media Server.

Depending on whether Flussonic is initiating a connection or waiting for a connection from a third-party system, whether it receives video or is a source, we distinguish between:

  • Ingest (from an external host)

Flussonic is the initiator of the connection and the receiver of the video stream.

Flussonic is the initiator of the connection and the source of the video stream.

Flussonic is waiting for a connection and is the source of the video stream.

Flussonic is waiting for a connection and is the receiver of the video stream.

Ingest or Publish

Publishing is transmission of video to Flussonic Media Server from applications and devices that initiate the start of video broadcast. Flussonic is the side waiting for a connection and receiving video data. Unlike publishing, ingest means that it is Flussonic that initiates a connection to a video stream source.
