IPTV and OTT services are fairly complex environments. They are composed from many elements such as Content Management Systems (CMS), Customer Relationship Management Systems (CRM) with Payment or Advertisement Insertion integration, Content Delivery Systems with Digital Rights Management (DRM), and Player integration. Often a content preparation backend is also part of such an environment.
A Content Delivery Network (CDN) is one of the most essential elements for a successful internet video platform. From one server, you can serve the streams of up to hundreds of concurrent viewers. But when your business scales, a network of servers is needed that scales with the streaming demand and brings the content closer to the viewer. A professional CDN provides performance and stability what results in a high-quality viewing experience. A multi-CDN adds even better reach, more capacity, helps to lower the price, and increases the availability.
A CDN is mandatory for every serious content provider, such as broadcasters, ISPs, mobile, or cable operators with video content proposals. It's used for Live and On Demand delivery.

A complete OTT ecosystem consists of at least a Content Management System (CMS), Customer Relationship Management (CRM) / Subscriber Management System (SMS) with Payment or Advertisement Insertion integration, Content Delivery Systems (CDN) with Digital Rights Management (DRM), and Player integration. In addition, the live streams and video-on-demand files usually need to be transcoded and packaged to adaptive bitrate formats. Metadata, pictures, subtitles, audio versions need to be imported and managed. When created from individual building blocks, a fairly complex integration project needs to be carried out. Our end-2-end solution address this exact problem and offers a fully pre-integrated solution.
OTT solutions are of interest for content owners, broadcasters, and network operators like ISPs, cable, and mobile operators.
