  • 1. Nimble Streamer Light-weight freeware media server
  • 2. HTTP streaming is the future ● More effective ● Lower delivery cost ● Better caching utilization ● Easier implementation Hence wide adoption of HTTP Live Streaming, Smooth Streaming, HTTP Dynamic Streaming and MPEG-DASH.
  • 3. Demand for HTTP streaming server Customers seek for light-weight solution: ● High performance; ● Low license price. Goals: decrease TCO and increase ROI.
  • 4. Nimble Streamer initial development requirements ● Handle all HTTP streaming protocols: ○ stream as origin; ○ re-stream as edge. ● Get binary protocols as input as well. ● Run at all major platforms on small virtual machine. ● Fit to high-performance streaming infrastructure. ● Free of charge.
  • 5. Nimble Streamer performs transmuxing, i.e. re-packaging on-the-fly: ● Pulled and published RTMP to HLS; ● MPEG2TS to HLS; ● Adaptive bitrates full support; ● Icecast/SHOUTcast to audio-only HLS; ● Security features may be applied to outgoing streams. HLS live origin server
  • 6. Transmuxing files to HLS in VOD mode: ● MP4 to HLS; ● ABR via SMIL files; ● MP3 and AAC to audio-only HLS; ● Security features may be applied to outgoing streams. HLS VOD origin server
  • 7. Re-streaming edge server: ● Re-streaming live and VOD HLS streams; ● Takes media from any origin server; ● Smart caching with RAM and ROM to offload origin. HLS edge server
  • 8. MPEG-DASH streaming ● Live streaming from published and pulled RTMP; ● Video-on-demand from MP4; ● MPEG-DASH re-streaming as cache-aware edge. ● Hotlinking protection; ● Geo blocking; ● Pay-per-view framework; ● Streaming over SSL; Nimble Streamer team is an associate member of DASH Industry Forum.
  • 9. RTMP ● Full RTMP streaming feature set; ● Pull from any source; ● Get published RTMP; ● Produce RTMP for playback; ● Re-publish RTMP for origin-edge interaction; ● Full set of paywall features.
  • 10. RTSP ● Pull RTSP from any source; ● Get published RTSP; ● Transmux to RTMP, MPEG2TS, HLS, MPEG-DASH and Icecast.
  • 11. MPEG2TS ● Take incoming UDP multicast and unicast MPEG-TS; ● Pull MPEG2TS over HTTP; ● Transmux to RTMP, HLS, MPEG-DASH and Icecast; ● Make cache-aware re-streaming of MPEG2TS.
  • 12. Nimble Streamer can be used as origin for various audio scenarios: ● Icecast cache-aware re-streaming with metadata support; ● Multiple Icecast streams as fallback; ● Transmux RTMP, RTSP and MPEG2TS to Icecast; ● MP3 and AAC tranxmusing to audio-only HLS; ● Security features may be applied to outgoing streams. Audio streaming
  • 13. Pseudo-streaming server ● Progressive download full support; ● Works as both origin and re-streaming edge; ● Seeking via HTTP Range header and Flash time marks; ● Supported formats: mp4, flv, mp3, oga, ogv, wav, webm, mkv; ● Custom formats support via just single config setting.
  • 14. SmoothStreaming and HDS server Cache-aware re-streaming as edge server: ● Smooth Streaming as live and VOD; ● HTTP Dynamic Streaming (HDS) as live and VOD; ● Take media from any origin server like IIS or Wowza; ● Cache chunks with RAM and ROM to offload origin.
  • 15. Protection, restriction and limitation Protecting your media assets with paywall feature set: ● Verimatrix VCAS support ● Pay-per-view framework; ● Hotlinking restriction; ● Geo-location limitation; ● IP ranges limitation; ● AES-128 encryption support for HLS. Based on proven WMSAuth technology successfully used for Wowza Media Server and Windows Media Services.
