Downlinking & Encoding

Flexible video processing at every stage. We handle the formats and codecs to ensure your content is successfully packaged and optimised for distribution.


Downlink any source

Get any source – managed by you, a third party, or us – to your audience, quickly and efficiently.  

We can ingest live streams from a variety of sources. These include remote feeds such as Real-Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP), HTTP Live Streaming (HLS), Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) or AWS MediaConnect shared entitlements in the cloud, as well as satellite or terrestrial downlinks from our London data centre.   

Thanks to source flexibility, we can perform the routing of inputs as straightforward as remote third party HLS, to the transcoding of incoming feeds into your required formats.

Live Transcoding

Robust transcoding on the fly

Transcode your way: cloud-based, or on-prem, with simultaneous input. We ensure enterprise reliability, with uptime guaranteed at 99.9% and an over 99.9% success rate. Fully adaptive input redundancy support, low latency comes as standard.  

Choose from encoding essentials (subtitles/closed captions, multi-channel audio), or unique file formats. We‘ve got you covered.  

Handle any input format for encoding and transcoding to your required codec. Take advantage of real-time packaging of encoded streams, into HLS, Dash, and smooth formats. Out-of-the-box, with support for subtitles/closed captions, multiple audio tracks, along with both standard web, mobile and specialist video file formats. 

Choose adaptive bitrate encoding (ABR), using AWS Media Live encoders in the cloud, best-of-breed on-prem encoders, or a combination of the two. Maximise resources and realise cost efficiencies in the cloud with the ability to scale up or down encoder capacity as required – handling many simultaneous input feed encodes at peak time and scaling back capacity when you do not require it.
