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.

Stream Switchboard

Use the ScaleEngine switchboard system to seamlessly switch between inputs. Change from one stream to another, or switch from a playlist channel to your live segment and back again.

With our switchboard you can have one output stream that pulls from any number of input streams. Because the output of a channel is a stream, you can mix between channels and live streams.

The switchboard has automatic fallback, so it will switch to the next active stream when the current active stream goes offline. Use this to make sure your stream never goes offline, by having your live stream fall back to a channel. Don't let your viewers get bored and leave because of a brief interruption.


Linear Playout Channels

ScaleEngine's channel system reliably powers internet TV and Radio around the world. Whether you are running a web TV station or feeding Facebook, Twitch or Periscope, or legacy cable head ends, you will find our playout system makes high quality, reasonably priced real-time managed linear streaming a reality.

Live Recording

Recording is managed per stream. You can record the stream into one file or automatically split the recording into multiple files. All recordings are downloadable, and can be played as VOD. Transcoded streams are recorded in all bitrates and offer multi-bitrate playback.

We provide recording controls in our control panel, and through our API. Recordings can be set to start automatically when the stream publishes, or can be started with an API command. You can have us prune the amount of recordings we store, based on how many days of content you want to keep. You always have direct ssh and ftp access to your files. 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.
