2020 Q1 summary

This first quarter of 2020 brought a lot of disruption into lives of billions of people. The unprecedented global measures to reduce the harm from pandemic require a lot of businesses to move online, work remotely and use live streaming more intensively.

Softvelum is fully committed to provide the best support to our customers, as always. Since the early days of inception, we were working remotely full-time. We were building and adjusting our business processes to keep the efficiency while expanding our team. Now when we have to self-isolate in order to stay healthy, we keep doing what we used to do through all these years, keeping the level of support on the same highest level. Feel free to contact our helpdesk and take a look at the list of our social networks at the bottom of this message to stay in touch with us.

With the extreme rise of interest for live streaming, we keep working on new features, here are updates from this quarter which we'd like to share with you.



Mobile products

Mobile streaming in on the rise now, so we keep improving it.




SRT

SRT protocol is being deployed into more products across the industry. Our company was among the first to implemented it into our products, and now we see more people building their delivery networks based on this technology. So we've documented this approach:
  • Glass-to-Glass Delivery with SRT: The Softvelum Way - a post for SRT Alliance blog about building delivery from mobile deice through Nimble media server into mobile player.
  • Glass-to-glass SRT delivery setup - a post in our blog describing setup full details.
  • All of our products - Nimble Streamer, Larix Broadcaster and SLDP Player - now use the latest SRT library version 1.4.1.
  • Just in case you missed, watch vMix video tutorial for streaming from Larix Broadcaster to vMix via SRT, which can also be used a the source for such delivery chain.


Live Transcoder

We are continuously improving Live Transcoder so this quarter we made a number of updates to make it more robust and efficient. Here are the latest features we've made.

  • You can now create transcoding pipelines based only on NVENC hardware acceleration which works for Ubuntu 18.04+. Read this setup article for more details.
  • FFmpeg custom builds are now supported. This allows using additional libraries that are not supported by Transcoder at the moment. Read this article for setup details.
  • Transcoder control API is now available as part of WMSPanel API. It's a good way to automate some basic control operations.
