StreamEngine Transcode

Home / StreamEngine®

Scalable SD/HD File Transcoder

For rapid file-based ingest, processing and publishing, StreamEngine® provides a reliable, fast and scalable solution that can ingest a variety of file formats from local storage or a remote location and create linear or adaptive streams for publishing to local archive or to a remote location.

A convenient Web interface with a very rich and easy to navigate GUI together with diagnostic and maintenance tools makes the StreamEngine® platform easy to set up and manage. REST APIs make workflow integration a piece of cake!

 Key differentiators include:(a) ground-up distributed system software design leading to high reliability, (b) ground-up MPEG2, H.264 and   HEVC codecs that provide industry-leading performance in terms of speed and quality, and (d) flexibility in terms of adding or removing         transcoding capacity (to suit your budget)
