Segregated Networks on dual NIC server

I need to create two separate networks on a single server with two NICs. The only services this server will provide is access to a single website serving a live video stream. The issue is that the computer generating the live stream is not authorized to touch/connect to a "live" network, only an internal connection to the server. The server will then receive the video and make it available via its 2nd NIC to users on the Internet.

My thought is that assigning static ips to the client computer and the server on NIC1 and assigning NIC2 with a separate network configuration and gateway to the Internet will work. I am not a network guy so I am asking what the network configuration should consist of and if in fact my thoughts would in fact keep the client computer that is not allowed to touch the network properly separated.

can you diagram, if I understand you, it is still touching your internal network, just as bridge, but maybe I am not visualizing it.

what you think is correct and can be done if you make sure the computer is the ONLY node touching the two separate networks.

i alo assume the computer has only ONE default gateway configured to access the Internet over NIC1, also NO routing enabled on the computer in order to make sure the two separate networkds won't communicate with each other.

no more need to do.

I have attached a diagram that may help explain my intent. The bottom line is that the client computers connected to the server on NIC1 cannot have access to the Internet; they are only authorized to communicate with the server on a closed local network. The second NIC on the server will be configured with the Gateway and access to the Internet. The client computer will be pushing a video feed to the server on the closed network and the server will make the video available to Internet users.

Thanks all for your replies so far.

yes, it can be done as you designed -- NIC1 on the same private subnet to access the streaming video while NIC2 to access the Internet via its default gateway.

again, make sure there is no routing enabled on dual-NIC computer therefore there is no chance for the two subnets to talk with each other.
