The solution supports multiple operational models including hybrid (cloud based back end with local streaming infrastructure), cloud based (complete service delivered from the cloud) and local deployment (all infrastructure delivered in a customer environment). In this way the solution is able to adapt to the local conditions as required by the customer. Regardless of the model the solution offers the benefits of rapid time to market, optimized operations and service agility without compromising on security, Quality of Service or service autonomy.VoD and nDVR
The MAXICASTER Media VoD / nDVR server utilises a single server footprint to deliver complete VoD, nDVR and Catch-up functionality. The combined capabilities rank amongst the most feature rich and scalable on the market. The system is built on a software principle and resides on off-the-shelf hardware, offering advanced VoD and recording functionality at a fraction of the standard solution cost.
This is achieved by leveraging non-real time business logic from the MAXICASTER back end and utilising the local Server for anything specific to the Service Provider or their subscribers. This significantly reduces the local server CPU usage and enables superior performance and scaling when compared to traditional stand-alone recording solutions.
