Video streaming protocol stack runs on multicores
Advantech, eInfochips and Texas Instruments have developed a protocol stack for video streaming on servers.
The HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) stack supports inbound and outbound transcoding, while also supporting multiple file container formats, screen resolutions and frame rates.
“As video consumption on various end-devices continues to grow exponentially, this high-performance HLS solution will be ideal to scale video delivery capacities,” said Ramesh Kumar, business manager, multicore processors, TI.
The stack was developed by eInfochips on Advantech’s DSPC-8681 PCIe card, which has four TI KeyStone-based TMS320C6678 multicore digital signal processors.
“The eInfochips HLS implementation optimized for video transcoding functions on Advantech’s DSP PCIe cards offers a highly scalable and adaptable solution for streaming video to all kinds of display devices in different resolutions,” said David Lin, senior director of DSP and video solutions at Advantech.
There is support for multiple device resolutions and frame-rates. There are configurable profiles, IP network parameters and bit-rates.
