On demand streaming

YOUR VIDEO LIBRARY ANYWHERE ON ANY DEVICE

In meeting the increasingly high requirements of today’s public, our VoD streaming solution provides a wide range of video storing and transcoding features and functionality, so that each device plays the unique content requested in the best possible quality based on internet speed and device capability.

TMS platform comprises its own petabyte-scale 100% S3 API compatible Object Storage to store customers’ source and transcoded video files. A proprietary, extremely flexible and customisable media transcoding system transcodes provided source assets to several bitrates and supports various formats of sub-titles and language tracks. The content is made available to the customer’s audience via global Telia CDN, using the industry-leading, HTML5 player by THEOPlayer.

Custom solutions are widely accepted, respecting the customer’s choice of player, placement of origin, security requirements etc.

FEATURE HIGHLIGHTS

Live channel content is ingested over the IP network from the customer’s playout into TMS servers. Supported protocols are RTMP, UDP uni-/multi-cast, SRT (Secure Reliable Transfer), HLS (Apple HTTP Live Streaming). Multiple bitrate stream and multiple audio language ingest is supported.
VoD content can be ingested in several different ways. The simplest way is FTP upload which allows for certain automation, for instance grouping of video, audio, subtitle and metadata files into a single compound video asset, categorising assets and limited automatic transcoding.
More advanced upload is possible with TMS API where all uploading options are available. Content is pulled from the customer source servers over FTP or HTTP and all supported options and automation can be applied.
Media assets ingested into TMS may be played back directly if they are in mp4 or mov formats. TMS media transcoder service transcodes them into adaptive bitrate media assets. The number of transcoding profiles is not limited. The default protocol is AVC, but advanced encoding parameters are available like the HEVC protocol, HDR colour etc.
The media transcoder supports the following video, audio, subtitle and metadata file types in input - mp4, mpg, m4v, mxf, avi, ts, m2v, mkv, vob, webm, mov, ac3, wav, mp3, acc, ogg, ifo, bup, stl, vtt, ttml, srt, xml. Any other file types may be added on request.
During a transcoding process the video track, multiple audio and subtitle tracks are mixed into a single media asset and transcoded into a configured number of profiles based on the transcoding preset defined by the customer.
Widevine and Playready are supported natively by TMS. Apple Fairplay support is possible but due to Apple policy the holder of the content rights has to acquire the necessary encryption means. DRM encryption is applied during packaging. DRM functionality usually needs to be integrated with a subscriber authentication system. Such integration is not part of this proposal as it needs much more detailed specification to estimate the costs, but it is possible to create such and TMS API is ready for generic integration.
The main component of TMS is the web-based self-service content and media asset management system. CMS/MAM manages all other system components and supervises the processes.
TMS REST API reflects functions and processes implemented in the whole system. API calls can be made to list, update and delete data, initiate processes and other tasks. API is documented and available to the customer.
Default analytics in the TMS is based on CDN logs, which represent the usage of the service. Such analytics is available through the TMS web interface.
Google Analytics is integrated into the embed code player and registers player video events. It may be necessary to purchase advanced GA services from Google in the case of large volume usage.
Embeddable iframe is provided for all content. It is configurable and customisable to adjust to different needs. The industry-leading HTML5 player by THEOplayer is used in the embed code and is compatible with most systems – computers, mobile devices, smart TVs, set-top-boxes and others.
