Demo1 - receive, display and save eight live video channels

The video Demo1 shows how to receive, to display and to save on storage eight live video channels in Media Applications of the bitcontrol® Video Streaming Server at same time. The received videos are from different video sources and in different formats:

  • 2x DVB-T USB Stick - MPEG-2
  • 1x AXIS IP camera - RTSP - H.264
  • 2x DreamBox (Set Top Box DM7020 and DM8000)
  • 1x USB WebCam Logitech QuickCam
  • 1x File in *.mpg format
  • 1x RTSP Client for a MPEG-4 stream (Live traffic video)

Demo - bitcontrol® SimplePlayer with Clients

This demo video shows how the bitcontrol® SimplePlayer acts as a Multistream Server and how it streams the protocols  RTSP, Adobe Flash Video RTMP and Apple HTTP Live Streaming HLS to different devices and media players at the same time. The following client devices are shown:

  • Blackberry Playbook receives RTMP with the browser Flash plug-in
  • Blackberry Z30 receives RTMP with MDC player
  • HTC One receives HLS with MX Player
  • Two VLC Players on a Win7 notebook receives the stream with RTSP and with HLS protocols, respectively
  • The IE browser on a Win7 notebook receives the RTMP stream with the Flash plug-in

All devices and players in the demo display the video streams from only one live video source. In this case from the same German TV-channel ZDF, which here is transcoded from MPEG-2 from an USB DVB-T Stick to H.264 and AAC. The players and the streaming protocols impact a different latency in the playback. Watch the several playbacks ;) Is the RTSP the winner, if you are watching football ?! Typical latency for the protocols:

•  native Player  100 ms - 1,5 sec
•  RTSP  0,5 sec - 2 sec
•  RTMP  2 sec - 10 sec
•  HLS  15 sec - 60 sec
