Efficient tools to build your streaming infrastructure

Orchestrate multiple Larix Broadcaster apps via a simple web service


Larix Broadcaster provides a wide range of streaming features for Android and Apple devices. No wonder many professional and amateur creators use it intensively on multiple devices for remote production scenarios.

However, REMI brings additional challenges for producers and content creators. Whether you’re a studio producer, a live stream director, or just a streaming enthusiast with several devices on the spot, you may want to configure and control all those multiple instances from a single place.

More devices bring more challenges

There are a few typical problems that remote production producers may face in that regard:

  • Remote contributors in the field need to get new connection settings to stream to the right server in the studio facility. Getting them manually may cause miscommunication and errors.
  • Multiple mobile devices are set on site (e.g., basketball court) by the production team to send streams from different angles. Each device needs to be controlled remotely: define settings for a particular event, start/stop stream, mute/unmute, enable overlays, etc.
  • The procurement department needs to purchase Larix Premium for different contributors on both iOS and Android platforms and transfer the purchased licenses among devices.
  • The REMI producer wants to get diagnostics of how remote devices operate in their networks: see streaming stats, bandwidth, lost packets, etc., to make streaming adjustments.

Larix Tuner was created to solve these problems.
