What you get

The Stream Oriented GE is a development framework that provides an abstraction layer for multimedia capabilities, allowing non-expert developers to include interactive media components to their applications. At the heart of this enabler there is the Open API. A REST-like API, based on JSON RPC 2.0, exposing a toolbox of Media Elements that can be chained to create complex media processing pipelines. The Stream Oriented GE provides several client implementations of the Open API. The Java client allows developers to include media capabilities to Java or JEE applications. There is also a Javascript client ready to be used with NodeJS or directly in browser applications. Thanks to these, the Stream Oriented GE provides developers with a set of robust end-to-end interoperable multimedia communication capabilities to deal with the complexity of transport, encoding/decoding, processing and rendering tasks in an easy and efficient way.

Why get it

The development of interactive multimedia applications is a complex task, which usually requires specific expertise and huge investments. Stream Oriented GE brings a number of abstractions and enablers democratizing multimedia technologies and making possible to any WWW developer to create powerful applications involving advanced features such as: interoperable audiovisual communications, computer vision, augmented reality, flexible media playing, recording, etc. The Stream Oriented GE will be particularly useful and intuitive for developers familiar with Java EE and JavaScript technologies, although its capabilities are also exposed through agnostic interoperable network interfaces that can be consumed from any other language of system. In a nutshell, It makes possible the development of complex interactive multimedia communications in a fast, simple and easy way.
