The Open Visual Cloud is a set of open source software stacks (with full end-to-end sample pipelines) for media, analytics, graphics and immersive media, optimized for cloud native deployment on commercial-off-the-shelf x86 CPU architecture. The open source software stacks presented for the Open Visual Cloud are provided under the FFmpeg and GStreamer frameworks as ready-to-use Docker images and Dockerfiles, which can help to implement cutting Visual Cloud services for advanced video distribution and processing. The Open Visual Cloud contains many end-to-end reference samples to unleash innovation, serving as a recipe book of optimized open source software pipelines to accelerate your application development.
