Contribution devices

Contribution devices are any hardware or software platforms that originate further up stream in the transmission chain, and provide the Live Encoder with, typically, a single bit rate input signal.

In theory any device that is capable of outputting the supported input streaming formats , video codecs and audio codecs will be compatible with the Bitmovin Live Encoder.

However in certain cases, we have seen vendors and suppliers implementing the standards in a non-conventional manner, in instances where a device is not able to connect please reach out to support and we'll assist in troubleshooting.
