Thyme is built on Ittiam’s neonCaster hardware and adroitStream SDK

  • The hardware is an 8-channel encoder platform based on Socionext MB86M25 video SoC. You have an option to license the hardware design files (includes production ready schematics, BoM, Gerber, test plan and test scripts/software).
  • adroitStream is the Encoder SDK that runs on Thyme hardware. It is an off-the-shelf configuration of adroitSDK and is optimized for single/multi-channel video streaming.
  • Offers C-callable APIs to accelerate your application development.
  • Supports multiple formats and standard compliant streams.
