Updates in 19

  • Live Streaming Added to the Media Streaming Server - LEADTOOLS Media Streaming Server technology streams multimedia content to any device. With this update, video and audio from files, capture devices, ONVIF-conformant cameras, UDP and RTSP streams can be transcoded on the fly and streamed to clients via a variety of protocols including Flash, HTML5, HLS, RTSP, MPEG-DASH, HDS and Microsoft Smooth Streaming.
  • RTSP Source Updates - LEAD Technologies added a new filter that developers can leverage to source video from ONVIF-conformant RTSP cameras. In addition to the new source filter, LEAD updated their RTSP Source filter to include a property that disables the filter's built-in authentication challenge dialog during connection to secure streams. The new property gives developers flexibility to maintain a consistent look and feel with their application's user interface.
  • Multimedia Embedded DICOM Update - LEAD DICOM Reader and Writer filters updated to support streams in MP4 and MPEG-2 Transport containers stored in DICOM dataset files. Video streams can be encoded as H264, and audio streams can be encoded as AAC, MP3 and MPEG.
  • New G.726 Audio Codec - G.726 is an audio codec standard used primarily to transmit speech.
  • HDTV Capture Updates - Now compatible with more HDTV capture device drivers.
  • New Properties for Smoother Play in Low-Latency Conditions - LEAD MPEG2 Transport Demultiplexer and LEAD UDP Source filters updated to have new properties that facilitate smoother playback during low latency conditions.
