Fluendo, the leading multimedia software development and GStreamer consultant, has released its GStreamer SMD elements for two Intel CE media processors.
Fluendo is a new member of the Intel® Consumer Electronics Network; a member-based community of hardware, software and services providers that accelerates the development, time-to-market and scalability of Internet-connected CE devices.
Playing an active part in the development of software for consumer electronics devices, Fluendo capitalized from this membership and collaborated with Intel® in improving the GStreamer support for two Intel® platforms, the Intel® media processor CE 3100 and the Intel® Atom™ CE4100, which are used in set-top boxes to create a connected TV experience. While testing the own Media Center on Intel media processors, Fluendo used Intel's existing SDK and developed a set of self-contained GStreamer elements that allowed Playbin2 players to take advantage of these platforms.
The elements developed by Fluendo provide video decoders, post-processing and its rendering elements, as well as audio decoders and its correspondent rendering elements. Those elements leverage the hardware capabilities to decode 2 simultaneous full HD video streams while managing digital audio passthrough and transcoding. Elements are provided in source code from under the license described in the COPYING file that is attached to this source package.
Julien Moutte, CEO and Co-founder of Fluendo commented: “We are glad that Intel and Fluendo are collaborating once more on an open source solution based on GStreamer for such an exciting hardware platform. GStreamer is now fully ready to address the CE market and we are glad to be laying the foundations for the community with this BSD licensed contribution”.
Founded in 2004 in Barcelona, Fluendo (fluendo.com) specializes in software development and consulting services. Fluendo employs several of the central developers of GStreamer, an Open Source framework which is quickly establishing itself as the de-facto standard multimedia framework for GNU/Linux and UNIX systems. Fluendo provides a wide range of products under and above GStreamer, including proprietary codecs (together with their respective patent licenses), a streaming server, the Fluendo DVD Player, the Fluendo Media Center, and Moovida Pro Media Player for Windows. Fluendo develops multimedia software to offer cross-platform and open source-based multimedia solutions to computer devices and consumer electronics, always aiming at proposing an innovative perspective of entertainment. Fluendo is one of the three companies integrating the Fluendo Group, and was the first one to be created. Fluendo is the pioneer company of the group gathering GStreamer expertise, and also holding the basis of all the solutions offered by the other two companies: Flumotion Services S.A. and Fluendo Embedded S.L.
