B2Stream


Overview


B2Stream is a DVB server/remultiplexer which generates in real time a MPEG-2 transport stream by multiplexing heterogeneous inputs (transport stream, private data, interactive programs, video or audio ES, SI, PSI, custom tables). Based on top of C++ classes, B2Stream is easily customisable in order to satisfy specific requirements from our customers. Moreover, an XML API is available, in order to create custom GUI.

B2Stream is built over a client/server architecture using XML for transactions. Remote administration allows several users to interact with their own configuration, depending of rights they had been granted. The web based graphical interface let every user to easily send and control multiplexing task with a simple internet browser. The GUI also displays several views allowing to graphically monitor the output stream (pie, histogram, ...)
