Your VOD, slates and ads normalised at every stage

Ingest your VOD, encoded to adaptive bitrates (ABR) for accessibility of streaming to any device. Normalise your content simply and effectively.

Request and insert ad pods from the cloud, in real time. It’s never been easier to seamlessly integrate advertising for revenue generation.  Transcode and normalise on the fly, with smooth transitions between content and ads, utilising unique creatives. Non-unique creatives are cached and served to users in the same workflow, but are not re-transcoded, meaning you can mix these to your requirements.


Streaming out-of-the-box

Stream channels with our out-of-the-box CDN (other CDNs are available). Present your channel in your Simplestream apps (Web, Mobile, Tablet, HbbTV, Smart TV & Console) with Live and EPG Views.

Formats: VOD2Live stream in HLS, DASH formats.

Origin: real-time playout of VOD2Live stream with ad markers — and slate insertion as a fallback to cover empty ad breaks or scheduling gaps.

Linear EPG: created automatically from your channel, for use on the platforms of your choice.
