Norsk Logo White

Norsk Media server lets you build any live streaming workflow—from single input, ABR ladder output to complex multi-camera productions with source switching, browser overlays, and in-play highlights—in just a few lines of simple, concise code.

It comes with the no-code Norsk Studio, a drag-and-drop UI that empowers both developers and non-programmers alike to assemble workflows with powerful components. If the prebuilt components don’t do what you need, you can easily customize them or build your own components with the Norsk SDK.

With Norsk Media, you can build dynamic, sophisticated live workflows that take advantage of the latest in hardware acceleration. And do it all in days or weeks, not months or years.
