Problem

New Cinema addressed Softeq to create a plugin powered by Open Broadcast Encoder. The component would enable the customer’s solution to support the DVB-T standard-compliant MPEG-TS files transmission via the UDP protocol and their subsequent decoding.

Solution

The Open Broadcast Encoder (OBE) D-100 platform provides a cost-effective choice for broadcasters and operators to deliver SD and HD MPEG-4/AVC services on satellite, cable, terrestrial and IPTV platforms.

Capable of encoding a wide range of channels globally, from lower-end channels to well-known premium channels, OBE delivers pristine-quality broadcast encoding, powered by x264 encoder. The plugin enables on-the-fly encoding of the live full HD video. The transmitted data is broken into streams with the full HD video and several audio streams processed separately.

During HD video processing, the application consumed the entire RAM of the server and subsequently crashed. Our team had to dig into the code to figure out the program’s malfunction and fix the memory overuse.

Results

Powered by the custom-built plugin, the Open Broadcast Encoder demonstrates an impressive 70% decrease in the traffic volume with the high-resolution quality kept intact.
