Maelstrom is a high-quality video transcoder and live stream transcoder. It is built into Jet-Stream Cloud. Your source is converted into multiple qualities, for HTTP adaptive bit rate video streaming and live streaming. You pay per minute output, no reservation slots needed.
When we streamed our first event in 1994, our postage stamp-sized HTTP streams were frame rate adaptive: the faster your modem, the higher your frame rate. Fast forward to the golden age of streaming: today you can stream in ultra high-definition quality, at high frame rates, thanks to adaptive bit rate streaming technology and the performance of Jet-Stream Cloud.
Create custom on-demand and live transcoding profiles in real-time, to support multiple use case. Select the output bit rates, up to 4K. Decide if you want to keep your original source file as the highest bit rate. Create audio tracks from videos. Save podcasts as downloads, and save videos as adaptive streams. Tune live streaming transcoding parameters for low latency, or extra high sport quality encoding. Manage your qualities, your workflows, and your costs. See this demo video.
Use the API to create custom transcoding profiles. Batch ingest videos automatically. Set up livestream publishing points and manage live transcoding profiles per stream. Transcode and encrypt yourself, using a software encoder or a hardware encoder, upload your videos and upstream your live streams in multiple bit rates directly to Jet-Stream origin servers. Or connect your own origin servers in a single click. Jet-Stream Cloud will serve out your media in the original quality, up to 8K.
