Video streaming technology helps NASA distribute live video across control rooms for low-latency, real-time monitoring
Montreal, Canada – June 2, 2020 – Haivision today announced that its technology was used to help NASA distribute live, low latency video for the NASA SpaceX Demo-2 Launch, streaming live video from NASA and SpaceX control rooms and the rocket launch pad at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
The launch of the Falcon 9 rocket took place on Saturday, May 30, at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The historic moment marked the first time in nine years that astronauts from the US traveled to the International Space Station from US soil.
Haivision Makito X video encoders and decoders streamed high quality, low latency live video from the launch pad for real-time monitoring of the launch at the NASA and SpaceX control rooms. Using the SRT protocol, NASA and SpaceX sent bi-directional audio and video feeds between each of the control rooms to communicate during the launch.
In addition to the launch mission, Haivision’s video streaming solutions are also used in NASA facilities nationwide, including the NASA Wallops Flight Facility and the Mission Launch Command Center. Haivision solutions power live and on-demand video streaming and IPTV workflows across NASA.
