Signal acquisition, multi-device encoding

Our end-to-end streaming platform, allow signal capture at the client site and transfers it to the distribution platform to deliver it in the most optimal way to the end user. Flumotion has its own architecture.

To achieve maximum flexibility, Flumotion allows different live stream capture modes:

  • Live acquisition from Flumotion’s data center.
  • Live streaming flows acquisition at the client site
  • Live streaming flows acquisition from own encoders at client site

The first encoding (whether it is in the data center for example at the client site) is carried out at source following market standards (H264 online video codec and AAC audio in FLV container). During transcoding the encoded signal (the signal enters the streaming platform) is decompressed and then encoded again to different formats (multi-device) and qualities.
