Video ingest & file recording solutions

The Medialooks Video SDK is an industry-tested way to rapidly build a video capture software solution: ingest video feeds from multiple sources, record to various file formats, encode with industry's leading video codecs.

Key features

Video capture software built with the Video SDK can record live events into files suitable for post-production or record 24/7 TV programming (compliance recording). The SDK features a wide range of supported file formats and codecs, supports various SDI hardware, as well as NDIĀ®, SRT, and IP streams.

Professional ingest systems are used at television stations and other video production facilities, in control rooms, monitoring centers, and research labs. Several Medialooks customers have used the Video SDK to add video capture products to their portfolio. Notable examples include Axel Technology and Playbox Technology. Our own Direct Take application is also a great example: visit the product page to download.
