I've got an event I want to broadcast live to iOS devices within a custom made app. The app bit is sorted, as is the live video stream itself, but how do I get the feed from my Wowza server to a CDN with enough bandwidth & grunt to support 1,000+ users?
So the process I have in mind is as follows:
- Couple of cameras hooked up via HD-SDI to a Blackmagic ATEM switcher.
- Switcher's HDMI output hooked up to a PC with an Intensity Pro HDMI capture card, fed into Wirecast, which produces a high bitrate MPEG2 stream.
- A 2nd PC running Wowza Media Server which produces the 9 or so H264 streams Apple recommends for HLS.
- H264 feeds sent to a CDN with the index file containing URLs of the 9 feeds.
The step troubling me is the last one - how do I get the H264 feeds to a CDN? Some sort of batch FTP process? An API from the CDN? I'm not really sure!
