What’s new at the NAB Show this year?




StreamS Logo HiFi AUDIO ENCODERS MI 260wIntroducing…

StreamS Live Encoder

The next generation of audio streaming and file delivery is here! Featuring both legacy protocols and the new HLS/DASH adaptive bit rate solutions (including HLS/DASH direct™), StreamS Live Encoder uses standard web server infrastructure for live streaming. There’s no special web server module required which means that any web server on any platform, including cloud storage, can be used. Without additional hardware, software or licensing costs your streaming solution is far more budget friendly!

The StreamS HLS encoder is licensed for either 2, 4, 8 or 16 audio input sources providing up to 4 streams per source.  While the StreamS 2 encoder runs as an application, StreamS 4 and Streams 8 HLS encoders run as MS Windows Services meaning faster reboots and reconnects without the need for user login. Extended real time metadata is supported and the newest addition is Cache-Control for the AWS protocol.

The new StreamS live encoder will be on display at booth N-630.
