Expanding its existing use of Edgeware’s CDN technology, DNA has added StreamBuilder’s functionalities such as video on demand (VOD) content ingest, network personal video recorder (NPVR) recordings, and just in time (JIT) packaging, to enhance its new and improved service. With StreamBuilder, DNA TV can benefit from a complete solution that meets all its origin server requirements and a smooth deployment project efficiently run by Edgeware.
Launched in February this year, the new DNA TV has revamped DNA’s TV offering for IP-based delivery, introducing multiple features including unlimited NPVR recordings, a new user interface and improved video stream quality. Through its innovative program-centric approach, subscribers can view and record unlimited TV programs with unprecedented ease of use and watch live and VOD content whenever they want, anywhere in the EU via the DNA TV app. Furthermore, the service delivers compelling content recommendations based on users’ individual viewing preferences.
StreamBuilder offers DNA a single solution for all of DNA TV’s origin server needs. Its applications spanning ingest and stream segmentation, repackaging, and live and VOD content encryption, give DNA the tools to take its content and service to the next level. For example, DNA TV’s new capabilities to create NPVR recordings and catch-up on VOD content are made possible through StreamBuilder’s flexible, scalable and reliable technology. It can also deliver content in multiple formats (HLS, DASH) through JIT packaging, saving on storage since content is only stored once.
