The project 'OBS Light' (or also obslight) , creates an encapsulation of OBS which presents a lighter face of OBS that we have called OBS light which could be delivered (if desired) with a pre-packaged MeeGo TV stack (or any other MeeGo vertical) released on a DVD image.
If you have (or are thinking about) selecting MeeGo but you cannot put all the code you want to build on OBS, the public, cloud-based MeeGo building tool, or if you are more comfortable with the tradition of local build tools based on a chroot than with a full cloud-based system like OBS, you might find the learning curve a bit steep.
While OBS will provide you with a very powerful and adapted tool for your long-term needs, the entry cost can be perceived to be too high. This issue is particularly strongly perceived in the TV or IVI segments where recompilation of the Linux kernel and adding drivers is required even during the very early phases of a project and compiling in the public domain is out of the question.

Note that under the hood, OBS light still is 100% OBS code and the building process is the same as what you could achieve by running your own private OBS. OBS Light mainly pre-configures an OBS with a few osc plugins to ease the learning curve.
Note that some OBS feature are hidden to simplify the learning phase. As the service is run locally, you can mix Open Source and private code should you need to do so.
OBS Light use an OBS server.
