Сompanies strive for globally distributed projects accompanied by huge revenues, however there is still a great number of specific low-budget tasks and they might be tricky to solve. In IT market crowded with a wide variety of solutions for encoding, transcoding, multiplexing and demultiplexing it might still be a challenge to find a multifunctional professional software product making it possible to quickly launch a project of any scale and complexity: IPTV, OTT, DVB-S/-T/-C broadcasting, corporate TV, point-to-point content delivery, multiformat data conversion to a single standard, making data storage in video surveillance efficient.
IPTV (UDP/RTP, HLS/MPEG DASH, RTSP) as well as DVB with DVB signal capture cards are usually utilized as a video source in such projects. The following protocols - UDP/RTP, HLS/MPEG DASH, RTMP are used for broadcasting.
Most frequently high-density encoding is an optimal choice for such projects and it is best achieved using real-time video transcoding based on Intel QuickSync technology. Intel NUC transcoding platform perfectly fits low-budget projects and makes it possible to encode 25 channels simultaneously at 1 server.
To leverage such solution for maximum value one should have the opportunity to work with coding graphs, remove or add components to the encoding scheme, change and configure its parameters, develop and use a custom-designed web-interface and integrate the encoder’s engine into an existing system.
I recommend my partners to have a look at Elecard CodecWorks https://goo.gl/CN1z5 that meets all the mentioned requirements and might be custom-configured to solve any task.
Elecard Codec Works provides a support of N+M backup and source backup mechanisms. Flexible settings help to achieve stunning results such as efficient transcoding with minimum possible delay – 1 field frame. It is possible to control the encoding server locally and remotely using Windows or CentOS manager or via web interface.
