Nimble Streamer Support for MPEG-DASH

Nimble Streamer is a powerful media server that offers wide support for MPEG-DASH. It supports a variety of live streaming scenarios and can process RTMP, SRT, NDI, WebRTC, RTSP, MPEG2-TS, and other input formats into MPEG-DASH for live output. Nimble Streamer also supports full ABR, which allows for multiple bitrates, and HbbTV. Using HTTP/2, Nimble Streamer can provide efficient MPEG-DASH live streaming to the latest browsers.

In VOD mode, Nimble Streamer supports H.264/AVC, H.265/HEVC, and AV1 video protocols, and can transmux MP4 video and audio into MPEG-DASH with low resource usage. HTTP/2 can also be used for VOD streaming in modern browsers, and remote HTTP storage is supported for large files. Adaptive bitrate is available via SMIL files support, and the same media files can be used for both DASH and HLS VOD transmuxing. Subtitles in WebVTT and TTML formats are supported for DASH VOD streams. Nimble Streamer DVR feature set allows recording of incoming live streams for playback via MPEG-DASH. Re-streaming of pre-packetized content is also possible via efficient caching, which saves resources and bandwidth.
