Delivering unbreakable, high quality, live streaming experiences
Built upon the award winning file-based Bitmovin VOD Encoder, the Live Encoder is a resilient live streaming software platform that takes RTMP, SRT or Zixi inputs and outputs to HLS and DASH for delivery to digital streaming services.
Live Encoding for Digital Platforms
Send your live event content to our encoder, using single or main and backup RTMP, SRT or Zixi feeds. Bitmovin then distributes outputs to digital platforms, providing outputs that are optimised for delivery over the internet. The ideal infrastructure to live streaming service providers to build world class live platforms.
Building on years of experience, and developed from an encoding platform with a reputation for excellence. The Live Encoder offers high quality video and audio outputs, on a platform that has been built with a focus on resilience and reliability. Offering extensive APIs for professionals with a raft of code examples and templates available for new users. Take advantage of our experience and raise your Live Streams to the next level.
Flexible deployments, with scalable pricing
Supporting deployments to AWS, Azure or Google cloud platforms. The Bitmovin Live Encoder can run in customer owned accounts, lowering TCO. Alternatively let us take the stress of managing cloud infrastructure away and use the Managed SaaS solution.
Scaling up and down in global cloud environments, allowing customers to have access to a high quality live encoder for events, no matter the location and scale. Supporting 50 concurrent events one day, and 5 the next – no problem. With flexible payment packages to suit your business needs, you only pay for what you use.
Content security is vital for any business where video is distributed over the open internet and carries a high monetary value. Protect your live streams with Hollywood grade DRM integrations.
