Hangar has been experimenting with free video distribution systems on the web. Thanks to this work, Hangar currently boasts its own web streaming service, completely based on open source software. The system can be used for live transmission and recording of events, concerts, talks, actions, performances, etc. Users can see the videos embedded in any browser or download them.
The system consists of:
- A computer configured to encode using the open source video codec Theora, which can run two video transmissions simultaneously, at different encoding quality levels.
- A web interface for managing, storing and displaying all the video material (mediabase+interface)
- A stream server that uses Icecast software
All this work carried out in the field of real time video distribution is designed to be easily exportable to other collectives, arts projects or initiatives that require these kinds of services.
Person in charge of the service: Lluís Gómez.
