Does TriCaster support multi-bitrate streaming profiles?
The answer quoted below is an excerpt from the Tricaster user manual, [Page 309, Section A.7.3]
" Yes it does, but there are a few things you should consider. Multi-bitrate encoding places higher demands on system resources than usual. It is entirely possible to create a custom multibitrate profile that is impractical, either because its bandwidth expectations are unrealistic, or because the encoding requires so many cpu cycles that it can intrude into other important live functionality. For this reason, we encourage you to use the profiles supplied with your system whenever possible, and if you do opt to use a custom profile – especially a multi-bitrate one – do perform meaningful testing in advance, to ensure everything goes as planned."
