Platform can work in relay mode, transmitting the original stream to clients without modification, or on the fly to encode the camera video or transcode the existing stream to another format.

As well supports adding a time shift, in which the stream is buffered to allow viewing at the same time in different time zones. It is possible to enable the GPU to speed up encoding and decoding.


Files and live streams received through CDNs, broadcast systems, locally connected cameras, local network broadcast points, and services like TV Mosaic can serve as content sources.

Playlists and video on demand are supported for content display delay (TV update). To start the transmission, in the simplest case, it is enough to start the server, create an M3U file with the available transmissions and distribute it among the users.
