New Cinema is a US-based startup that specializes in video streaming solutions. The company is best known for its CogoHD compression algorithm. It can deliver HD video via normal broadband connections.
The client employed Softeq to create a plugin powered by Open Broadcast Encoder. The plugin would help transfer specific files via the UDP protocol and decode them.
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.
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.
