For a Facebook Live event my client wants two completely separate and redundant paths. Ive been given the RTMP server destination, stream name and source username. Can Clearcaster deliver or should I use another encoder?
Currently the ClearCaster can be used to create two different streams using an RTMP server destination using the Simulcast feature. This is achieved using the ClearCaster with Wowza Streaming Cloud. Here is our article on this workflow: https://www.wowza.com/docs/wowza-clearcaster-user-guide-simulcast-live-stream-on-facebook-live-and-wowza-streaming-cloud. You can test this with a free trial of Wowza Streaming Cloud which you can get here: https://www.wowza.com/pricing/cloud-free-trial. I do want to mention that if the second stream is going to Facebook, it will only be displayed in 720p while live.
