STANAG 4609 Streamer Version 1.0.23
STANAG 4609 mandates MPEG Transport usage for motion imagery distribution. A Transport Stream (TS) contains compressed and packetized video, optional audio and metadata information in a multiplexed data stream. STANAG Klv Streamer is an application that let you to re-stream STANAG TS files over IP networks. Used in both military and civilian applications, Klv Streamer allows developers and operators to re-broadcast a playlist of CBR/VBR STANAG / TS files over the UDP (unicast/multicast) with real time or slow / fast rates, preview resulting network streams with Klv metadata and analyze STANAG TS files.
The application is built on top of ImpleoTV's STANAG Streamer .NET SDK.
For more details on STANAG 4609 / TS stream and KLV metadata please see STANAG 4609 and KLV metadata in TS
This section contains information designed to get you started quickly
Two things must be done in order to start files re-broadcasting over IP:
You can show a bitrate chart of file/playlist, as shown below:
Press the "Plot Bitrate" button to show the playlist chart or select and right click an individual file.
There maybe some TS stream errors that could affect correct bitrate calculation. For example, PCR discontinuity indicator error, when the difference between two consecutive PCR values is outside the range or become negative.
If the difference between two consecutive PCR values is negative, it is marked as Red circle on the graph.
Klv Streamer Demo is a fully-featured version of the application but has a time limitation. In order to lift this time restriction, the software must be activated with the valid license. For more info please see Activating an application
