Supporting television production and media distribution while teams work remotely brings with it many challenges. A primary challenge with remote work is the ability to see, hear and understand the technical properties of your media library from afar. At Telestream, we call this media file opaqueness.
GLIM was built to solve well known remote work challenges: be a vastly superior experience to the ‘remote desktop/virtual desktop’ play back experience, and to prevent remote employees wasting hours every day downloading mezzanine grade media files. Solving these two challenges significantly reduces the aforementioned media file opaqueness, and ultimately increases productivity.
The GLIM engine is built for remote playback of any container / codec / resolution / fps /audio channel / color space combination in a web browser (Windows or Mac OS and Google Chrome v80+).
GLIM has been designed and engineered to playback high resolution and high bit rate media files over very bandwidth constrained internet connections (example: working from home while connected to corporate VPN).
GLIM leverages proven standard technologies to display media in a browser that requires no additional software to be installed by the client.
The GLIM engine contains a plugin architecture to interact with Vantage and other third party systems via web service (REST) calls.
A single GLIM engine supports playback from multiple users.
The GLIM engine runs on Windows Server 2012 R2 or Windows Server 2016.
