Audio/Video Characteristics

Kraken input streams are MPEG Transport Streams with the following characteristics:

  • Video Codecs: MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.264 or H.265 (HEVC)
  • Audio Codecs: AAC 2 channel, AAC 5.1 channel, AC3 2 channel, AC3 5.1 channel, or MPEG 1 Layer 2


Kraken only supports Single Program Transport Stream (SPTS) inputs. Multi Program Transport Stream (MPTS) inputs are not supported.

Output streams are MPEG Transport Streams with H.264 or H.265 (HEVC) video (Main Profile 4.2 level maximum) and AAC 2 channel stereo audio. Kraken outputs video in progressive format only.

Any input stream that had a mono audio source will have that source replicated into Left and Right stereo channels. Audio may be disabled, which will remove any audio tracks on the output stream.
