Simplestream’s end-to-end proposition included the deployment of proprietary content management system (CMS) Media Manager, pre-integrated with Mediability’s DiNA, a powerful tool for storytelling and editing. The video on demand content is ingested by Simplestream from the source, and sent to an S3 bucket, with subsequent categorisation and normalisation pre-distribution.
Media Manager also powers the automated Live2VOD module, with live streams ingested from Mediability. The workflow, in this instance, needs to observe a number or ‘rules’, such as specific publishing windows, or the skipping of ‘repeat’ content when coming in from catch-up as opposed to a categorised series. To achieve this balance, Simplestream utilises the Live2VOD clipper against the EPG data (provided by Provys).
It was also key for Simplestream to deploy the website in Norwegian, by implementing a new language for the Media Manager Languages & Localisation module.
