Haivision Network Video, a producer of live video transcoding, has partnered with content delivery network and streaming media provider StreamGuys, Inc. to offer live video asset management and streaming services.
Haivision’s KulaByte product line offers cloud- and server-based live transcoding solutions that enable StreamGuys to deliver a single live video source to many customers and devices at multiple bitrates, formats and resolutions, according to the companies. The KulaByte transcoding technology improves StreamGuys’ workflows by combining live transcoding with the flexibility of targeting specific streams for devices using HTTP Live Streaming (HLS), RTMP, RTSP, MPEG-TS, and Smooth Streaming.
StreamGuys’ virtualized, adaptive bitrate streaming service on the server side delivers the most appropriate bitrate to each device based on current network conditions, thereby increasing the likelihood of transmitting the highest possible signal quality at the correct resolution.
The combined solution offers video services to multiple platforms, from SD/HD desktop streaming to 3G and 4G mobile devices to both enterprise-level organizations and small-to-medium sized facilities, the firms say.
In addition, the partnership “positions each company as a reseller of the other’s services, allowing StreamGuys to offer live transcoding with Kulabyte’s professional hardware, software and service solutions, and Haivision to include StreamGuys for content delivery and distribution within their solutions,” the companies say.
