Video Stream Mixing

Merge multiple video streams into one using WCS

WCS allows mixing streams of active broadcasts. The output stream of the mixer can be recorded, played or republished using any of the technologies supported by WCS. The mixer allows custom placing of video streams in the output frame.

Mixing is controlled using settings and REST API.

Scheme of the stream mixer

The WCS server receives video streams from their sources and, by the REST API command, combines them into one stream, which can later be played in the player.
