FAQs

One of the most popular questions we get. Of course, the answer will depend on your application. But good news- we have created a special tool to help you get an estimate. Check it out: http://systemconfigurator.tagvs.com/

Absolutely! Did you know all our existing clients tried the system before choosing TAG? (Okay, all but one). Apply for your free 90 day trial: https://www.tagvs.com/tag-trial/

Yes! The TAG platform can run on cloud instances. Learn more here: https://www.tagvs.com/tag-on-the-cloud/

We do!

The two main challenges of cloud live production implementations for work-from-home applications are getting the uncompressed sources to the cloud and delivering the Mosaic Output to the home.

The TAG platform JPEG-XS which can be used to deliver high-quality production content to the cloud where bandwidth limitations apply and can also provide the mosaic output as Zixi and/or HLS streams to be delivered to the home over the public Internet.

The TAG platform has an elaborated JSON API which can be used by custom user panels configured to control the system functionalities.

Yes! The TAG open, flexible and rich APIs allow integrations with virtually any system

Absolutely- You can view all monitored streams in the same layout.
