LEADTOOLS MPEG-2 Transport Stream SDK technology is a complete solution to play, convert, capture, and create MPEG-2 Transport Streams for .NET (C# & VB) and C/C++ developers. MPEG-2 Transport Stream is one of the most popular multimedia formats today and is used in digital television, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), Blu-ray media, and more. LEADTOOLS is one of the most feature-packed MPEG-2 Transport Stream libraries on the market with robust error correction and KLV metadata.

MPEG-2 Transport Stream is a flexible container format that supports MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.265, and H.264 encoded video. When combined with LEAD's market-leading codec implementations, programmers can add MPEG-2 Transport Stream support to their applications with unparalleled performance in compression rates and playback quality.

Overview of LEADTOOLS MPEG-2 Transport SDK Technology

  • Compatible with all MPEG-2 Transport encoded data, including MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.265, H.264, AAC, AC3, LPCM, and MPEG Audio
  • Built-in DVR functionality
  • Handles corrupt data, found in some MPEG-2 Transport streams, with no interruption
  • Smooth playback even in low-latency conditions
  • Create and parse any KLV data to create implementations of specifications such as:
  • Add KLV metadata in synchronous and asynchronous modes (MISB STD 0601.4 4 March 2010, MISB STD 0902.1)
  • Capture and play from devices sending hardware-compressed MPEG-2 Transport Streams
  • Demultiplex MPEG-2 Transport Streams in both push and pull mode
  • Automatically insert and verify CRC32 error detection checksums
  • Seek in byte mode to provide more control over the seeking process especially in files with bad or corrupt timestamps
  • UDP streaming can be with or without RTP packets
  • Monitor receipt of data from multiple streams for synchronized playback
  • Set threshold to control playback drift and lag of live streams—important for applications such as remote UAV control that require the end user to be sure that what is seen is in real time
  • Create and receive live MPEG-2 Transport compliant streams
  • Create MPEG-2 Transport streams compatible with the TV broadcast requirements
  • Manually set PID of each stream
  • MPEG-2 Transport functionality provided via .NET (C# & VB) and C DLL libraries for 32 and 64-bit development
