Data Transcoding

The transcoder service generates, from the process patterns and a link to the original data, a data representation as a L3D specific to the end-device class and visualization method. In the process, the application requirements are taken into account and, if needed, processed in real time. Furthermore, the delivery service provides different delivery mechanisms (e.g. HTTPS, WebSocket, SPDY).

Results can be cached between requests, so that for a given process pattern and original data link the transcoding process is only done once and the results are cached. All subsequent requests for the same original data with the process pattern are then served from the cache instead of being processed again.
