Development of real-time video and audio workflows using high performance processing software 

Student project (1-2 participants), Bachelor Thesis

With the increasing demand for WebTV, over-the-top (OTT) services and IPTV solutions, high performance encoding and transcoding software has become an important part in the media distribution chain. Different available codecs, container and protocols require a sophisticated configuration of the processing software. In the context of this project students will have the opportunity to take a deeper look into the latest high-end encoding software.


  • Configuration of next generation processing software like Elemental Server, Elemental Delta, Elemental Live, Thomson VS7000, Envivio Muse and Envivio Halo 
  • Develop adaptive streaming workflows for different implementations like MPEG-DASH and HLS (live and on demand content)
  • Define your own encoding chains and test them in different players (e.g set up a webcam on the roof and configure a livestream)
  • Check for possible content protection of the streams(Cenc, PlayReady,Widevine) 

Required Skills:

  • Interest in media streaming and video/audion encoding
