Lumen Product Family

Lumen is SeaWell’s content creation engine. It is a Powerful H.264 Scalable Video Coding (SVC) transcoding and encoding appliance for On Demand content. SVC is an intelligent file format for Adaptive streaming; rather than relying on the creation of multiple files to fulfill the need, it uses one file built up in layers. When content is requested, SVC responds by sending the layers required to play back the content at the viewers reported bandwidth and resolution. No longer do you need to target specific files to specific delivery platforms, Lumen literally allows you to encode once and deliver to many.
