Softeq helped the client develop a media streaming solution, which allows advertising agencies to broadcast content on digital signage installed in public venues via a custom LTE device. The solution incorporates a scalable back end, mobile apps, and custom Android firmware for the customer’s media streaming device.
To broadcast ads on a digital screen, users insert a custom device into a flat panel display, connect to the device remotely via a mobile app, and choose the appropriate settings.
Media Streaming Solution for Digital Signage
A major US-based telecom company turned to Softeq to augment a multimedia streaming device with a back end, mobile apps, and custom Android firmware.Show Case Study
Softeq's team implemented a cross-platform library that underlies the functionality of a Windows/MAC based desktop app operating with a sports and action camera.
The solution allows uploading media files from the device to several major social networks. To perform social media integration, the team had to deal with HTTPS REST API. Softeq’s team had to swiftly dip into the technology, identify limitations (YouTube’s library doesn’t officially support Windows OS), and find workarounds by creating wrappers and helpers — all within a week’s time.
Cross-platform C++ Library for a Desktop App
The customer’s unit decided to tap Softeq’s software engineering skills in a project requiring both low-level programming expertise and high-level software development experience. The solution, implemented as a C++ library compatible with the customer’s API, performs a background upload of media files to a user account on Facebook or YouTube, while displaying the upload progress with the possibility to cancel or pause data transfer.Show Case Study
