Live transcoding for broadcasters to only publish a single source stream to our server. The source stream is transformed into other bitrates or formats. This allows the broadcaster to reduce complexity of source encoding, as well as subscribers receive an uninterrupted stream of video without buffering or stuttering. Live transcoding technology varies the resolution of the video seen by the viewer by switching to streams of the identical content containing a higher or lower bit rate depending on what the current network and processing resources are available, which help with reaching different end user devices and platforms. Transcoded streams can be delivered as adaptive bitrate using Flash RTMP/HTTP Dynamic Streaming, Apple HLS.
