Having created an initial demonstration version of the app for live content, Globecast handles the encoding of the feeds as per a customer’s requirements. The feed(s) is then delivered to the MainStreaming backend via an RTMP or MPEG-DASH stream. MainStreaming’s backend transcodes the stream(s), and then they are fully managed by Viaccess-Orca’s TV Platform as a Service (TVaaS) which includes on top of the app the content protection with its multi-DRM solution and the secure player.
For VOD content, it’s a similar workflow with the uploading of the VOD content handled by Globecast via an easy-to-use web portal supplied by MainStreaming. After receiving the on-demand files, MainStreaming encodes them into the specific resolutions and bitrates and then feeds VO’s as a service TV platform. Content delivery to end users is handled by MainStreaming’s iMDP Service.
The app is fully customisable and is pre-integrated into Viaccess-Orca’s TV platform, as an optimized end-to-end solution for iOS and Android mobiles and tablets, and PCs. Channel logos, a visual trailer of each VOD stream, a program guide for each live channel, restart options and the insertion of customised advertising are all supported on the app.
