How We Process Content

Ingest & Transcode

After decryption, live content is transcoded into two ABR streams of 800k and 2.5MBs. The streams are packaged in 4 second HLS segments and used for live content. Copies are archived to DAS storage for catch-up TV or nDVR.


Streams are requested by the player and transmitted by the onsite unified media server

Receive Content

Live content is received and broadcast IP multicast and protected by simulcrypt. Normally the Smartbox is point to point to the media server.


Subscribers login to their account through middleware hosted at AWS. They receive updated EPG data and targeted announcements.
