Introduction to Live Stream Ingest

Capture live streams (RTMP) for inclusion on your Imagen platform

Imagen offers the option to display and ingest live streams. This treats a live RTMP Stream (Real-Time Messaging Protocol Stream) as a piece of media, encoding a web proxy on the fly creating a growing file. Platform users may clip from live, annotate media and timeshift (jump back through the feed).

The live streaming functionality processes streams up to 5Mbps (not full HD) and creates a 1Mbps proxy live, and clips will be made from this. After the event has ended, Imagen will re-encode the file to the platform's proxy quality.

Live streaming currently relies on manual scheduling of live transcoding resources by our Client Services team. For pricing, please consult deployment.
