StreamGuys is launching a new service to turn video into an audio podcast. The cloud-based SGrecast live streaming repurposing platform, which will be shown at the 2017 NAB Show, will add to its audio podcast recording capabilities by enabling broadcasters and video professionals to automatically transform live, linear video streams into podcasts and side channels.
SGrecast uses StreamGuys’ transcoding technology to automatically convert audio to the formats and bit rates appropriate for use in live syndication; it also has a new recording mechanism to record audio streams in their native format. The transcoding technology can also now be applied to video for live syndication and is capable of recording live RTMP, RTSP and HLS streams for conversion to MP4 files. In addition, the system offers a suite of scheduling tools that enable fully-unattended operation, while integrated publishing to RSS feeds, automated delivery and compatibility with syndication services are also available.
Additional features of the SGrecast specifically for audio include rebroadcasting tools and social media integration. These capabilities are expected to be included into the video application sometime in the future.
