HD broadcaster

Build your own iPTV profitable network NOW!

YouTube is working now on seriously trying to offer High Definition with 1080p support. Their technology requires the users to download and install the Adobe Flash Player plugin similar to QuickTime or RealPlayer browser plug-ins. Users are limited to a ten minutes in length and 2 GB files size. They had no restrictions but only for a small number of organizations which were partners.

YouTube accepts videos uploaded in most container filetypes, including AVI, MKV, MOV, DivX, FLV. These include video codecs such as MPEG, MPEG-4 and WMV. From March 2008 they were using the Sorenson Spark codec at up to 864X480 pixels with AAC codec for audio then switched to 720p based on the MPEG-4 AVC codec.

One of the key features of YouTube is the ability of users to view videos on web pages outside their site. YouTube videos have and html code, which can be used to embed it on a page outside the YouTube website.

Before working hard and releasing the TikiLIVE iPhone broadcaster, we created a full HD broadcaster similar to what YouTube is trying now to achieve. We already encoded HD files and released video samples. You may check them here.

The broadcaster is able to broadcast in true 420p 720p and 1080i all at 30 or 60 frames per second. The amazing feature of the broadcaster is that it only requires a regular broadband connection to broadcast. A viewer can watch the broadcast via a flash based player from either a TikiLIVE solution or the BlinkoTV solution.

This solution is very user friendly and requires the least amount of hardware to use. We have done away with proprietary hardware such as encoders and made the solution software based. The only hardware required to broadcast with the HD broadcaster is a capture card, Dual Core(Quad Core PC required full 1080HD), a HD video source, and a broadband internet connection of 500Kbs to 1Mbs.

Here is the PDF link to the entire concept.

This is a sample of HD encoding performed by the Monster Encoder. Monster Encoder is a state of the art multi thread, multi pass encoding engine. I hope you enjoy this sample. We will be posting new HD trailers so that you may experience HD technology.

I’m waiting for any feedback on what you think of the quality (try this in Full screen) and if you want to try TikiLIVE broadcaster, I can offer you a few tips.

    Oh! My God!!!! The picture quality is fantastic. What is the secrete of having such clear picture quality on a blog?

  2. Catalin says:

    Hello Anthony, thank you for the question. The secret is our TikiLIVE broadcaster. You can download it for free from http://www.tikilive.com and run some tests too. Also another secret is HD encoding we did with our Monster Encoder application. This is an on the shelf encoding engine available for you to try at: http://demo.monsterencoder.com/ You just select the file, upload it on the Monster and the application does all the work for you. You can send me your video samples and we’ll encode them at the best video quality.

    Let me know if you need to know more about it and thank you for keeping an eye on the blog.

    Nice job folks. It looks spectacular and the tikilive site does too. A couple of things:

    1. Does your product (TikiLive HD Streaming) support Windows 7 64 bit yet? The docs seem to point to other versions of Windows.
    2. Could you post a High Def sample that wasn’t done with world class equipment and production values? Would love to see a sample of something like my Panasonic HMC-150 output, which I’m sure you could find in a vareity of locations. I could try and do something, but don’t yet have a full ‘reel’ of something worth sharing with the world.

    Hello Alf,

    Respond to your questions:

    1. Yes, TikiLIVE is Windows 7 compatible. Thank you for pointing this out as we will update our documentation 🙂

    2. Our encoding samples are done at our Monster Encoder server cluster. To utilize this cluster you do not need any “world class equipment”. Just a PC and decent connection to the internet. The HD encoding process is a hands off automated approach. Read more about it here .

    To view another sample please check out this video on TikiLIVE .

    Thank you.
