Live Transcoder

Video encoding and transcoding on-premises and in the cloud

Comprimato Live Transcoder

Live Transcoder is an eco-friendly, GPU-powered software for video encoding and transcoding. With the world’s fastest JPEG2000 codec, it seamlessly transcodes between production formats like JPEG-XS TR-07, JPEG2000 TR-01, NDI, and distribution formats such as AVC and HEVC. Additionally, it offers motion-compensated frame rate conversion.

Deploy Live Transcoder as a docker container on-premises or in the cloud. Ideal for events like sports tournaments or festivals, this pay-as-you-go solution leverages Nvidia GPUs and cloud technology for cost-efficient streaming, superior performance, scalability, and reduced carbon footprint.


    The world’s fastest JPEG2000 TR-01 & JPEG-XS TR-07 engines are directly compatible with contribution streams and allows for direct contribution to distribution transcoding.


    Ingest compressed live IP video formats, such as H.264, JPEG2000 TR-01, JPEG-XS TR-07, or NDI, and convert between 50 fps and 59.94 fps frame rate standards.


    Deploy Live Transcoder on-premises, in the cloud as a docker container, or mix. Choose Pay as you go, monthly, or annual subscription models and meet your current streaming needs.
