Sending and receiving media data over networks supporting streaming protocols like RTP, RTSP, RTCP, RTMP, RTMPS, UDP, SDP, TCP, etc., and many Codecs and Formats provided by MainConcept.
What good is audiovisual media, when it’s only stored locally on a hard disk? Content becomes valuable when it’s being distributed, either locally in the facility for collaboration or globally for sharing and viewing. MainConcept Network Streaming SDKs enable media streaming and sharing in a variety of formats. Whether unicast or multicast, whether using RTP or RTMP for direct point-to-point connections or using UDP for custom streaming. Direct, unencrypted, or with added security layers, almost everything is possible using MainConcept Streaming SDKs.
The Network Server SDKs enables RTP, RTSP, RTMP* and now also RTMPS* streaming any media, in almost any codec from your application to any network client. Applications range from media exchange inside the facility, generating live feeds for broadcasting to Facebook Live ingest.
Its counterparts, the Network Client SDKs enable applications to receive and ingest media via RTP, RTSP, RTMP* as well as from Adaptive Streaming* sources using HLS, MPEG-DASH or Microsoft Smooth Streaming.
Seamless integration with MainConcept demultiplexers and decoders is guaranteed by providing access to the network components through the renowned MainConcept API.
* Features require optional licenses.
Create content and stream to Facebook Live directly from your application. The added security layer, now mandated by Facebook, ensures reliable and protected media connections for efficient live distribution.
