Expertise, Straight from the Source



Services

We will work with you to find a custom-tailored and flexible set of services that best meets your needs at every stage of your design and development process.

On-site Training and Workshops

We offer on-site classroom-style training in GStreamer, multimedia basics, media streaming, cross-platform deployment and related areas. This can be useful to get your team up and running faster whilst avoiding common pitfalls from the start, or to solidify their existing knowledge and supplement experience with deeper theoretical understanding. All trainings can be tailored to your specific needs.

Less formal on-site workshops provide an opportunity to look at your existing setup, code and designs; to debug problems directly in your environment; or simply to interact with your team and discuss challenges face-to-face or bounce ideas off each other.

Software Design and Architecture

We will transform your ideas into designs and come up with a robust and extensible software architecture, devising the most suitable technical solutions for your problems including the pros, cons and risks of each suggested approach. In short, we provide suggestions how to best implement your ideas.

Feasibility Studies

We can help you determine whether a framework, library or technology you are considering to use for a project is right for you and your chosen target platforms. Is it up to the task? What problems should you expect? Where are the risks? What might be possible alternatives?

Standards Compliance and Certification

We also provide assistance towards achieving standards compliance such as for DLNA or DivX certification.

Software Development, Optimisation and Maintenance

We can help with anything from bug-fixing, to the addition of new features to applications, servers or libraries, to development from the ground up. This also includes performance, memory usage, and latency optimisations, as well as maintenance as-needed or on an ongoing basis. We can work on-site or off-site. We can work independently, managing and delivering projects to your schedule, or work embedded into your team under your direct supervision.

You can also sponsor us to do general maintenance in areas that are of particular interest to you, so we can find and fix bugs and other issues already before they affect you.

Help and Support

We can provide your team with fast and reliable expert advice on an ongoing basis as needed. Whether it's by answering questions, pointing to the right piece of code or documentation, helping with debugging, or fixing the occasional urgent blocker issue, we can help make your team more productive.

Porting to GStreamer 1.0

We can do effort estimates and risk assessments for porting your GStreamer plugins and applications to GStreamer 1.0, and if needed can also help port them and any other missing pieces.
