Video Streaming Services

Live Streaming

Send an RTMP stream from your encoder, and publish your streams to the world with our players. Leverage ScaleEngine's global CDN to broadcast to any size of audience, without needing to run a single server.

Whether you're a small operation that streams regularly to your dedicated fans, or a group that that has massive events, ScaleEngine can accomodate your needs. It is easy to add features such as push publishing, recording, and transcoding, and we have simple player generation in our control panel.

We do not restrict where you can place your stream, or where you can push your stream. We also do not have limits on viewer numbers or stream density. Stream as much or as little as you want, whether that's 10 megabit 4K streams, or a 24/7 feed, we can make it happen.

Live Stream Transcoding

Our live stream transcoding takes your single input stream, and makes multiple output streams to accomodate all your viewers, no matter what device or network they are on. The GPU accelerated transcoding system creates smooth output bitrates to provide the best viewer experience.

Use our embed generator to get a player with adaptive bitrate built in. This will allow you to offer the highest quality for viewers on TVs and computers, while letting phones switch to lower bitrates to accomodate local network conditions.

Your transcoding is reserved for you 24/7, all month long. Stream whenever you want, for however long you want. Just send a stream, and let us take care of the rest.

Live Recording

Recording is managed per stream. You can record into one file, split manually, or segment based on time intervals. File names are returned by the API. All recordings are downloadable, and can be posted as VOD once indexed.

Our Recording System records either the entire stream end to end, optionally segmented by time, or just the portions you desire. You will have an mp4 file in your storage a few minutes after your stream ends. The system is configurable to your requirements. We provide recording controls in our control panel, and through our API. Transcoded streams are recorded keyframe-aligned. We can auto-generate smil manifests of the resultant VOD set.

Included features include recording unconditionally, recording only if control commands are sent, and time segmentation. You can have us prune the amount we store, based on how many days of content you want to keep. Remember, you always have direct ssh and ftp access to your files - unlike other VOD platforms, we do not have a layer of abstraction hiding the file names or contents.

The recording feature includes the VOD system file browser, direct file access, and our player generator.
