Distributed Transcoding and Conversion SDK

Distributed Transcoding and Conversion

LEADTOOLS provides DirectShow Elementary Stream (LTES) filters and transforms for optimizing multimedia file conversion speeds by splitting and converting each piece in parallel on a single computer or distributed across multiple machines. When combined with the LEADTOOLS Distributed Computing SDK, developers can create powerful audio/video transcoding applications that simultaneously provide faster file conversions and reduced end-user CPU usage.

Overview of LEADTOOLS Distributed Transcoding and Conversion SDK Technology

  • Convert to and from any supported format using any DirectShow or Media Foundation codec
  • Split large files into multiple, smaller pieces for distributed conversion and merge the results with no loss
  • Automatically and intelligently detect the best split points to ensure a seamless output file with no gaps or hiccups
  • Distribute conversion tasks or portions of files using the Distributed Computing SDK
  • Includes .NET (C# & VB) and C DLL libraries for 32 and 64-bit development

Benefits of Distributed Transcoding and Conversion

  • Faster conversions using multiple machines —
    Large audio/video files can be split and distributed between multiple servers or desktop computers to speed up conversion and recompression in addition to using little to no resources on the client machine.
  • Faster conversions on a single machine —
    Programmers can utilize more CPU by splitting a file and converting each piece in parallel on the same machine.
