Seting up a multicast server

Hi,

I have a windows media server. For some reason, i'm only able to stream unicast streams from that server. I want to know if a device (router or server) can get the unicast stream from this server and multicast it over the network. It will be my subscription point.

Thank you,

MP

Re: Seting up a multicast server

Unicast-to-multicast streaming is a solution similar to stream splitting, except that in final delivery segment the stream is converted to multicast to minimize the bandwidth usage impact on the network and to minimize the load on the Content Engine. With unicast-to-multicast streaming, if you have a Content Engine in the same location as your clients, the Content Engine can acquire the stream as a single unicast stream over the WAN and convert it to a multicast in the LAN.
