Product Characteristics and Detailed Features

Streamron Incorporates Management, Monitoring and Content Delivery Applications

Streamron incorporates a friendly and web-based administration interface. All the functionality provided by the web administration is also available via SOAP. The Streamron supports protocols for data transmission, session control, content delivery & management, media server management & monitoring and modules for FTP content upload and proper indexing functionality.

Off-the-Shelf Servers, Linux OS Based

Streamron is designed to be cost effective. It is built on top of Linux OS, using open-source Linux TV drivers, which serves as a basis for using standard and cost-effective off-the-shelf HW servers from HP, IBM, SuperMicro or other vendors.

Unicast and Multicast Support

Streamron IPTV video on demand supports unicast streaming for VOD and multicast for nVOD content transmission. Unicast represents streaming between a single content source (data storage) and a single receiver that requests a particular A/V item - e.g. movie. On the other hand, multicast represents the transmission of all the streams at the same time in a one-to-many approach, where the streams are sent only once to all the specified/subscribed clients in the IP network.

HTTP Progressive Streaming

Streamron also supports HTTP-based progressive streaming, based on which video files can be transmitted over standard internet connections and using TCP/IP protocol. Before the video is played, the requested video file has to be downloaded to user’s physical storage, which is then erased after being played.

Trick Play (RTSP)

Trick play functionality enables real-time control and playback of media files from data storage. VCR-like functions support functionalities such as pause, fast forward (2-64x), fast rewind (2-64x) and similar.


An nVOD stream represents a live TV channel, which is streamed based on a playlist created from scheduled files on data storage. nVOD can be scheduled to play continuously 24/7 hour/day or just for selected time periods.

Random Access

Streamron software supports streaming either from the beginning of the media file or from any chosen point in the timeline.

PID Filtering, Subtitle Transcoding and Other Functionalities

This feature enables the selection of audio tracks and subtitles (if available) in order to enrich particular video content / streams. Streamron also performs transcoding of DVD subtitles (bit-map) into DVB subtitles during its operation.
