Live Capture

Capture for later

Maximise live TV capture possibilities with our automated on demand services.

Our Live2VOD automated workflow captures programmes from your live stream and presents them as VOD in your app library or reverse EPG within moments of a programme’s completion.

Create from SCTE: utilise powerful in-stream SCTE markers for frame-accurate recordings – regardless of whether your channel is running early or late, your VOD will be captured from the first programme frame!

Create from EPG: EPGs or broadcast playout schedule metadata feed can also be used for time accurate start and end programme cuts.

Set stream specific offsets and padding, to adjust your capture windows as required – manual editor also provided.

Your audience can access the newly captured VOD in their app on demand library or via the backwards-scrolling EPG, to watch the show they just missed going out live.

Live2VOD is the perfect workflow to implement a cross-platform VOD service, and for HbbTV, offers a cost-effective way to maximise Broadcasters’ Audience Research Board (BARB) viewer ratings and uplift revenue via 7-30 day automated catch-up.

Set defined publishing windows for content to appear on your on demand service, to ensure full rights compliance.

Boost on demand content revenue further with Dynamic Ad Insertion (DAI) of pre-rolls and mid-rolls.

Clean VOD

Frame-accurate VOD reformation

Create clean, high-quality VOD assets — Perfectly concatenated programme reformation.

SCTE-enabled concatenation: using in-stream SCTE markers and fragmented MP4 concatenation – automatically capture a programme from your live stream, strip out the ads, and merge the segments, to recreate frame-accurate, uninterrupted VOD.

Asset-based workflow: deliver broadcast playout programme segments from the broadcast playout provider for concatenation and presentation as a single asset in your VOD library.

Remonetise captured VOD assets with Server-Side Ad Inserted (SSAI) pre-rolls and mid-rolls.
