LAS VEGAS and PALO ALTO, Calif., April 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In this age of data science, developers are seeking to incorporate valuable metadata in their video streams. We now have an elegant solution in the combined technologies of EvoStream & Bitmovin. The EvoStream Media Server (EMS) provides a robust mechanism for ingesting metadata of all types and associating it with video streams. Bitmovin's HTML5 Player is an intelligent, intuitive player that delivers a quality video experience for everyone, everywhere.
"We firmly believe that metadata will be more and more important in live, low-latency video streaming," said Bryan Meissner, CTO and Co-Founder of EvoStream, "and by partnering with Bitmovin we're able to solve not only the frame-aligned delivery of the metadata, but the player-side parsing and presentation of the metadata. Adding metadata to your live streaming workflow could not be easier. "
"Content owners are demanding increasingly sophisticated mechanisms that take advantage of today's delivery capabilities," said Stefan Lederer, CEO and Co-Founder of Bitmovin, "we've found that by partnering with companies like EvoStream, we can harness these capabilities in our joint solution and deliver the benefit directly to the content owner."
Using the EvoStream Media Server's Run-Time APIs, metadata is timestamped against the video and transparently transported with the video throughout your entire workflow. It is then delivered in real-time with the video for display or analysis along with the video. Bitmovin's Player receives the metadata frame-aligned and in-time with the video, and delivers to the viewer.
Examples of practical applications include:
- An action sport camera that uses location info from the connected phone, as well as an IMU (inertial measurement unit) sensor that tracks snowboarding tricks, jump height, etc.
- Security camera collecting metadata from on-board image and audio processing libraries. The metadata will include motion detection alerts and bounding boxes, environmental info like temperature and noise/decibel level.
