A new set of functionalities with high performances will be introduced via the new integrated video server managed directly by the new Zextrasconfig infrastructure’s handler.

Audio and video flows will be compressed, optimized and combined in order to obtain a unique and specific stream for each device, considering and using the best bandwidth/codec for every specific device.
