Now Elecard CodecWorks supports hardware encoding on NVIDIA graphics cards. What is more, we have added support for most popular protocols and implemented a new web-interface!

Formats and protocols

  • SRT stream encryption is added.
  • Support for receiving a stream over the RTMP protocol.
  • Support for receiving and broadcasting a stream over the RIST protocol.
  • CPU-based real-time transcoding into HEVC.

New web-interface

Now CodecWorks implements faster and more user-friendly web-interface. The alpha version is released, so functionality is limited, but soon the interface will get the full range of great features.

Other features

  • Hardware transcoding on an NVIDIA graphics card is available now.
  • Internal interaction for the software components is accelerated.
  • Now the scheme version history is registered — you can safely edit the scheme and then easily restore the initial version.
  • The possibility of manual generation for service information tables NIT, SDT, TDT is added.
  • In the Manager, the new Input URL column is added. The column value can be copied for further use.
  • Now you can search schema by URL.
  • The list of SNMP events that can be notified by CodecWorks is extended.
  • The logging system is redesigned: log rotation by size or creation time is added. Rotation events are registered in the Log.

This time we focused on the Windows version. Elecard CodecWorks 4.8 for Linux also supports SRT, RTMP and RIST as well as includes some other improvements. Support for NVIDIA graphics and other important features will be added soon — stay tuned for more news!
