Collabora is the world's leading provider of consulting, development and training for GStreamer. GStreamer is the leading open source multimedia framework, powering everything from GNU/Linux servers and desktop systems to very demanding embedded devices such as always-on IP surveillance cameras.
Getting multimedia right is hard. Very hard. A virtual forest of formats, protocols, standards, broken standards, broken files, and hardware types makes multimedia one of the most difficult areas to deal with. But GStreamer gets it right and has been proven to do so across a wide range of applications, operating systems, hardware platforms and devices for many years now. The wide deployment of GStreamer ensures that GStreamer benefits from continuous improvements and maintenance. As so many core contributors of GStreamer work at Collabora we are able to steward the project forward, ensuring quality is maintained and the varied use cases of our customers are addressed.
Collabora has been assisting customers most recently with their more complex multimedia needs recently such as DLNA compatibility and WebRTC for example. Specifications like CVP-2 Collabora has first-hand experience with, including aspects such as trick-play and trick-mode.
Today Collabora engineers are the main contributors to the GStreamer platform, continually enhancing GStreamer and making sure it remains the best choice for multimedia. We offer a wide range of services and software around the GStreamer framework including:
Collabora's initial contribution to the GStreamer community was taking GStreamer into the realm of VoIP and videoconferencing. In collaboration with our customers we have added specific features to the system, such as making sure that GStreamer got top of the line RTP support and support for advanced video-editing functionality through the GStreamer editing services. Collabora also created the GStreamer add-on modules for the RTSP streaming server (gst-rstp-server) and helps maintain the DLNA framework for GStreamer, called Rygel.
