    Stream Delay to allow for cutting off audio before it streams

    Hi,

    We've setup a Tricaster web system from a studio that streams into the FME server of our CDN. Has anyone used any workable 'delay' system that allows for censoring inappropriate content before it goes live? Ideally, we'd want to have 30-60 seconds of delay time to have enough time to cut off any audio that should go live and keep the video running.

    Thanks for any help/suggestions on this.

    We do this with our VT for live cable broadcasts. The inexpensive way we do it uses a ReplayTV device (similar to a TiVo or DVR). We output the video from our VT and feed it into the ReplayTV and pause it for a 30 to 60 second delay.

    If something inappropriate makes it to air, we skip forward a couple seconds -- although we have never done this.

    The only problem is that this would require a separate computer to stream your event to your CDN. You wouldn't be able to use the built-in FME in the TriCaster.

    I'm not sure if there's a way for you to accomplish this directly with your CDN. Hopefully someone else will have a suggestion.
