How did I keep the money coming in while writing-up? This. The work is under NDA, but I did the following for a major European broadcaster.
- Wrote a functional specification for MPEG-TS playout server with splicing functionality and REST API
- Python prototype of MPEG-TS stream splicing
- Python-C++ interop prototype
- Tech-lead with C++ dev for streaming engine and Python dev for web-app host
I delivered this project for Artists & Engineers, who sometimes have a big engineering project going on behind the scenes. It helps oil the art side, amongst other things.
It was real R&D. I have many battle stories.
