MediaStream Live Encoder is professional software to encode and transcode live input SDI- and DVB- streams into multi-output multi-profile DVB- and HLS-streams (HLS-origin).
Software works under Microsoft Windows on x86/x64 processors, operates as a service/daemon, and is 24/7/365/N oriented. Hardware-accelerated encoding/decoding on Intel-GPU is supported and required for advanced features.
MPEG2/H264 and MPEG1 audio/AAC from DVB-IP Multicast/Unicast UDP/RTP with FEC, DVB-ASI/S/S2/T/T2/C/C2, HTTP, SRT.
Output, multi-profile: DVB-IP Multicast/Unicast UDP/RTP with FEC, DVB-ASI, HTTP, SRT, HLS (origin).
All regionalization features: see features of MediaStream Regionalization and insertion.
To capture SDI, a Deltacast, Dektec or Blackmagic interface is required.
To output DVB-IP streams, Intel/Broadcom NICs are strongly recommended.
Except for the simplest cases, video encoding requires an Intel QuickSync, CPU-based or discrete.
Recommended OS: Windows 10 IoT Enterprise LTSC with certain group-policy tuning.
Approximate resources consumption: in complicated scenarios, server with one GPU is capable to (re)encode up to 4 full-HD services and up to 12 SD-services into h264, and dozens of SD-channels into MPEG-2. Scalability achieved by discrete QuickSync-cards.
