Claimed to be the world’s first such deployment, Ateme’s Cloud DVR is a service that allows viewers on an IPTV or OTT network to record selected content for later viewing. A buffer allows users to pause during a live stream, replay or start over, with potentially unlimited recording and access.
Ateme says the Cloud DVR solution is flexible enough to adapt to any market regulation related to the private copy vs shared copy aspect (one physical copy per user or not) at the channel or even programme level.
An Infinite Buffer algorithm optimises storage and QoE and the Embedded Distributed Storage (EDS) design, combined with multi-tiered storage capabilities, facilitates scaling up while providing unlimited archiving capabilities with third-party storage. Because it enables resources to be shared across services, it is also expected to reduce the carbon impact of video delivery.
Rémi Beaudouin, Chief Strategy Officer at Ateme, said: “Audience expectations are being shaped by new entertainment experiences such as gaming and social media. Meanwhile, new technologies are enabling innovative ways of consuming and monetising video content. We are thrilled to be at IBC this year and present the pioneering work we’ve done to help broadcasters and service providers leverage these changes.”
