Stirlitz Media Logger – native IP SPTS/MPTS capture – 4K ready

Stirlitz Media Logger is a native IP-based logger, using standard hardware.

  • DVB compatible MPEG MPTS/SPTS over IP (UDP, HTTP, HLS) and RTSP streams are captured together with all accompanying metadata, in the original format and/or re-compressed, by the Stirlitz Media Logger software without any hardware capture card/solution.
  • DVB-S/S2/T/C, ISDB, ATSC, ASI, HDMI, HD/SD SDI, CVBS sources are captured through professional receiver/encoders that create one or more MPEG MPTS/SPTS over IP (UDP, HTTP) that are then captured by the Stirlitz Media Logger, including all the original embedded metadata.
  • IP cameras; encoders capturing HDMI, HD/SD SDI, CVBS (composite) create RTSP streams that are captured by the Stirlitz Media Logger.
  • Only when you have many composite video sources, then we recommend an on-board video capture card, Eurosys Picolu U-series (hardware compression), capturing up to 16 composite video sources with mono audio per card. No metadata capture.

SML Player – immediate access to everything

Timeline based SML Player gives instant (2 seconds after recording) access to the recorded video. Multiple metadata layers can be displayed on the the Timeline, in the metadata text-box and in the (dockable) screen.
You don’t only see the video playing now, but also screenshots of the whole recorded history. Move through time by dragging any of the Timeline bars (from bottom to top: months, days, hours, minutes, seconds).

There are two versions of the Player:

  • SML Player, Windows desktop application
  • SML webPlayer, browser based, HTML5 Player for workstations and mobile devices

Video below is based on the SML Player.
