Goal

Build a playout setup through an easy to use interface.

Description

The playout system can be composed of streaming sources, master and relay servers, as well as fallback streams.

Actors

Administrator.

Constraints

A streaming server has to be installed and running.

Pre-conditions

The necessary operating system privileges need to be configured, so that editing the streaming server options is possible through the interface.

Main success scenario

The administrator...

  1. chooses a stream source and defines one or several steams with different bandwidths
  2. chooses a master server by IP and port
  3. defines mount points for the stream sources.
  4. chooses a relay server by IP and port
  5. defines mount points for the relayed streams.
  6. chooses a fall-back stream source and configures a bandwidth for it.

Post-conditions for main success scenario

  • when ready, the administrator can listen any of the streams at any mount point, whether it be on the master server or on the relay server
  • it is also possible to trigger the fall-back

Other scenarios

Simpler configurations
configurations without a relay server or without a fall-back stream are possible, but not recommended.
