Efficient tools to build your streaming infrastructure

Ultra-low latency WebRTC ingest and playback

WebRTC is supported in various Softvelum products

Nimble Streamer

Nimble Streamer receives WHIP ingest
and provides WHEP playback

Larix Broadcaster

Larix Broadcaster streams WebRTC WHIP output

Signaling is an important part of WebRTC stack because it defines how a client connects to the host.
Our products use WebRTC-HTTP ingestion protocol (WHIP) signaling for ingest and WebRTC HTTP Egress Protocol (WHEP) for playback.
