HLS (HTTP Live Streaming) and MPEG-DASH (Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP) are the two most popular technologies for live streaming over HTTP now days. Both technologies work with small media chunks in live mode, which are served over HTTP, making the stream delivery easier through the systems firewalls. HLS is already widely used for streaming to mobile devices and systems and MPEG-DASH now becomes more and more popular with its advanced technology features.
We are proud to announce the new release of JPlayout, JIPEncoder and JCapture. All of them are now enabled for HTTP Live Streaming and Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP. The latest version of JPlayout can perform direct playout to HLS and MPEG-DASH. JIPEncoder can perform direct streaming from SDI, HDMI, component and composite to HLS and MPEG-DASH. And JCapture can directly ingest to HLS and MPEG-DASH from SDI, HDMI component and composite. One of the main advantages of our three solutions is that they allow simultaneous capture of HLS and MPEG-DASH of the same source stream, thus covering wider variety of receiving solutions. In JCapture, both HLS and MPEG-DASH are ingested in static mode, and in JPlayout and JIPencoder the streams are delivered in live mode. For the HTTP Live Streaming a corresponding M3U8 manifest file is created, describing the stream and for Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP corresponding MPD (Media Presentation Description) manifest file is created.
JPlayout and JIPEncoder have integrated HTTP server. This way the playout and the encoding solutions are acting as live HLS and MPEG-DASH streaming server. Still it is possible to output the HLS and MPEG-DASH streams in pre-configured destination folder, where they can be accessed by any third-party HTTP server for better optimization, such as Nginx and Apache.
Coming soon: We are constantly improoving our software solutions. More great features are already in development.
Stay tuned for our future updates and new releases.
