Live Event Streaming

Available as a small form factor portable appliance, on-premise server or 4K appliance, the award-winning KB Series of H.264 & HEVC Internet Media Encoders and Transcoders provides you with multiple options for live event streaming, helping you deliver the highest quality live video to your global Internet audience.

Best viewing experience on every device

Give your Internet audience the best viewing experience regardless of their geographic location, network conditions or preferred device. With the software-based KB transcoder, you can deploy on-premise or in the cloud and encode/transcode video up to 1080p to distribute as a cascade of adaptive bitrate RTMP/HLS/MPEG-DASH streams across the world’s largest CDNs, giving you the highest quality per bit.

Save on uplink bandwidth

When your Internet connection at the source isn’t very reliable, and bandwidth is limited, simply send your video streams to a transcoder in the cloud to take care of adaptive bitrate (ABR) distribution. With support for HEVC and Haivision’s SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) technology, the KB Series uses up to 50% less bandwidth than H.264, and makes low-cost, readily available public Internet connections secure and reliable for live video transport from the source to the cloud, getting the most out of your available uplink bandwidth.
