Broadcast Pix chooses Medialooks MFormats, WebRTC to power remote solutions DetailsEditor | 04 October 2019 Remote integrated video production and streaming solutions developer Broadcast Pix has selected Medialooks’ MFormats Software Development Kit (SDK) and WebRTC to build Commander, its remote user interface.The Broadcast Pix Commander is designed to enable users to view and control cameras and productions in full motion video in Chrome, Safari or Firefox on any connected device. Buttons can be configured to trigger Broadcast Pix’s media-aware macros to simplify operations, such as rolling clips, adding lower thirds or logos, displaying split-screen effects or remotely controlling robotic cameras, so streaming requirements are quite demanding. Medialooks is an international source of SDKs for software developers seeking to build industry-leading products.“Since 2003, Broadcast Pix have pioneered integrated solutions that replace several devices requiring dedicated and trained operators,” explained CTO Ben Taylor. “When it came to creating a remote user interface for viewing and controlling our systems we chose Medialooks as our partner because its highly flexible and powerful video SDK enabled us to effortlessly create and manage streaming media formats saving development time.”Having successfully implemented Commander, Taylor added that the company was looking forward to what his team can do with MFormats to expand playback, streaming and local recording options not only to provide more streaming formats but also increase performance.“We took a number of sample applications and looked at resource utilisation and saw that CPU load and memory usage are less than they are with the tools that we have been using,” he added. “Performance is really critical for us, so we are looking forward to using it in other areas.”
