Point to Point (PAP)

POINT TO POINT VIDEO TRANSMISSION

DIGICASTER® PAP, or point to any point as we like to call it, delivers a stream from a source device to a single destination device.  The reason we use the term "any point" is to differentiate it from a typical fiber point to point circuit that connects two physical locations, and traffic can only be transmitted between these two locations.  With DIGICASTER® PAP a stream can be sent from a source location to any available receiving device connected to the Internet . . . thus "any point" on the Internet with an available, connected receiving appliance.  The source appliance can send the stream to a specific destination today, and a completely different destination tomorrow, so it's not bound by the limitations of a point to point fiber circuit that can only transmit between two fixed locations.
