The LEADTOOLS Streaming Module consists of the Media Streaming and Video Conferencing SDK, Smooth Streaming and Windows Media support. The LEADTOOLS Streaming Module adds on to the LEADTOOLS Multimedia SDK. The Media Streaming functionality is described in more detail here.
The Video Conferencing component of the LEADTOOLS Streaming Module is perfect for developers who need to serve videos on demand, offering an unsurpassed multimedia experience while at the same time reducing bandwidth requirements. You can serve multimedia files using a standard IIS web server or using the Microsoft Media Server. You can bypass the Windows Media Encoder and send compressed data straight to the Windows Media Server. You can create IIS Smooth Streaming files and push them straight to an IIS Media Services server.
The Video Conferencing component is designed to provide you with all the tools you need to provide streaming multimedia content via the web.
It is also possible to create custom video conferencing applications and utilities, and create Client / Server applications such as:
Security Server / WebCast - Where a single server is sending to multiple clients
Video Conferencing - Where each computer participating in the conference is both a client and a server
Live Presentations over the Web - Where screen activity on a server is captured and sent to one or more clients
The Video Conferencing component includes a fully enabled development license for the following components:
Network Filters and Objects:
Multiplexers and Demultiplexers:
Video Post Processing Filters:
Obtaining release versions of the Video Conferencing Components
You can develop and perform testing with the development only editions of the components, codecs and filters contained in this product. In the case of the codecs, a LEAD Encoder or LEAD Decoder message text will be displayed in the video stream, and in the case of the filters and components, a licensing dialog will appear from time to time while the program is running. The development only editions do not expire but may not be used in a production environment under your license.
In order to deploy the Video Conferencing specialized component, you must complete the Deployment License Application form (which can be found in the LEADTOOLS Licensing Help File under the topic, "Deployment License Application"), and procure any necessary deployment licenses.
