The new platform enables service providers to deploy large media libraries of mixed or heterogeneous content throughout their networks of video server deployments to best suit their needs. Service providers can now extend VOD deployments to more communities by deploying edge servers that were not previously economically viable due to the management overhead and quantities of different edge servers required. Because ConvergeMedia Management Suite and storage platforms also support fully integrated advanced advertising features like dynamic ad insertion and interactivity, service providers have a platform to launch new revenue generating advanced services without replacing the deployed servers.
"With the growth in the type and quantity of media and consumption devices, it becomes even more important to ingest, distribute and manage such assets cost effectively and easily across small and large networks," said
Seamlessly managing all forms of media content in a real-time, dynamic and efficient manner allows service providers to focus on their services and less on the technology. The ConvergeMedia management and distribution platforms allow operators to cost-effectively deploy very large and growing libraries of OnDemand content across entire network footprints using different servers for media formats.
The ConvergeMedia OnDemand management platform further offers features that enable operators to converge High Speed Data and video services with OnDemand and advanced advertising offerings by providing content search capabilities, recommendation engine integration and personalized features. This will allow subscribers to push personalized search and content to their various media devices, including playback on TV, PC or smart mobile device (3 screens). It provides full-cycle content management: acquisition to consumption, heterogeneous and hierarchical content for optimal storage and streaming, along with a high availability design critical for 'always-on' revenue-generating advertising and OnDemand services.
