Boston Limited launches Stream+, an optimised solution for large-scale ultra-high-density live video encoding

Boston Limited, today announced the launch of Stream+ during a keynote address from Manoj Nayee, managing director Boston Limited, during the Xilinx Developer Forum (XDF) Europe, 12 – 13 November, The Hague, Netherlands.

Hyperscale video services like social and e-sports networks need to encode and serve vast numbers of live streams to their users. The server infrastructure required to satisfy this demand is often the highest cost for network operators. The Boston Stream+ is an ultra-dense encoding solution offering significant quality and cost benefits to video delivery customers.

Expanded Cloud Media Workflow for Live Streaming from Space Successfully Tested During SMPTE 2019

Today at SMPTE 2019, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and Amazon Web Services (AWS) successfully tested a workflow that marks the first use of cloud resources for data storage and video origination for streaming from space. The proof of concept expands on the workflow NASA and AWS co-produced in 2017 to enable the first-ever live 4K UHD stream from space, and now includes cloud-based media services for high-quality and secure live video transport, video origination and packaging, broadcast-grade live video processing, and content delivery networks.

The test took place during a special SMPTE program honoring the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing and supported a special live interview with NASA astronauts Christina Koch, Jessica Meir, and Andrew Morgan located 250 miles above Earth aboard the International Space Station and two NASA colleagues presenting at SMPTE 2019 in Los Angeles.

nanocosmos to Demonstrate nanoStream Cloud, Including H5Live Player, for Delivering Ultra-Low Latency Live Video at IBC2019

Live video streaming with ultra-low latency (ULL) is becoming more and more popular in the media environment. ULL enables new types of interactive applications and use cases to be explored, such as auctions, gaming, and webcasting. Through these interactive applications, media companies can boost audience engagement, promote content gamification, and go beyond typical broadcasting applications to open up new business opportunities. As media companies, broadcasters, and other vertical markets look to interact directly with global audiences on any desktop and mobile device, having a flexible, scalable, ULL solution is critical.
