How HDRelay Works


For the last 15 years HD Relay and USRelay have been creating, expanding and optimizing our worldwide live network system so that we can deliver the most effective remote camera performance on the market. Simply put our relay network attaches to your remote camera as a single "client" and in nano seconds transforms that simple camera into a highly scaleable seamless live HD video marketing tool for your business or client base. All platform transcoding, instant camera controls, image quality management, branding and feed securing happen at our data centers all under the watchful eye of a very knowledgeable support team.

Fast, Bandwidth Friendly High Definition Live Video Technology from HD Relay

Now with efficient H.264 compression live HD video uses half the bandwidth of standard definition and with twice the quality at an incredible 30 frames per second.

High Definition H.264 protocol improves the video resolution quality by encoding and transmitting two interlaced fields for each frame: 30 frames per second and 60 fields per second. This process allows us to present transcoded Flash based video that is immensely more fluid and lifelike. The result of this enhancement is a substantially higher resolution quality that approaches or matches MPEG-2 quality at a 64% lower bandwidth cost.

HD Relay next-generation video compression technology can match the best possible MPEG-2 quality at up to half the data rate. H.264 also delivers excellent video quality across the entire bandwidth spectrum — from 3G to HD and everything in between (from 40 Kbps to upwards of 10 Mbps).

Does H.264 live HD video require a large amount of bandwidth locally? 

H.264 is a computationally advanced codec that simply requires a H.264 compatible HD network camera and a common broadband internet connection uploading our HD Relay worldwide server farm. For example, a full feature Live HD camera system requires a minimum of 500Kbps upload speed or greater in most locations these upload speeds are very common. Our live H.264 compression in fact connects to the remote cameras as a single socket connection so no matter if there are 10,000 viewers using, controlling and viewing the remote live HD camera at once the local bandwidth requirements are not impacted.

Tourism Example Camera

"‚ÄčThe eLiveStream system is so reliable that I sometimes lose track of it being on. It isn't until a skier or other visitor mentions how much they enjoy watching the video does it sink in what a great tool it is. Being able to control the pan, tilt and zoom functions provides greater freedom to explore our mountain and the many exciting activities we stage year round."

-- Eric Hoffman, Interactive Marketing Director of Park City Mountain Resort
