If you run a non-live channel that typically plays limited unique content per day,
a 24/7 satellite feed may be unnecessary. An edge playout solution can not only help save costs,
but also help you create regional sub-feeds with ease.
Cost effective playout
Move away from traditional satellite or fiber model to save significantly on CAPEX and OPEX.
Tailor playlist for regional headends to create sub-feeds, and control remotely through web based UI
MCR ‘on the go’
Your MCR goes wherever you go. You can manage your entire broadcast from any web browser, with complete control over playout.
All your media assets are transported to a secure cloud. From cloud, content can be sent to the edge playout server at the operator headend via Internet, and stored on the device. You can add dynamic graphics, create playlists, and schedule playout with few simple clicks using a Web-based UI.
Traditional methods such as satellite and fiber are content agnostic. Whether it’s new episode, or re-run, every asset contributes to the transmission cost. Also, these methods restrict what you can do with your playout, limiting innovation, and last minute responsiveness. Using an edge playout supported by cloud can help you run your channel at a fraction of traditional broadcast costs, and also localize feeds for each region.
