IBC 2019, Amsterdam, Sept. 10, 2019 – MultTV, a consortium consisting of 13 ISPs in Brazil, chose to upgrade its shared headend with the Beenius Interactive TV Platform, which enables a multi-operator system with value-added video services. MultTV benefits from the integration with Verimatrix for content and revenue security that supports the wholesale/retail distribution model and Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elemental for its on-premises encoding capabilities.
For this project, Beenius, Verimatrix and AWS equipped MultTV with a platform that supports interoperability with value-added services such as recommendations, targeted TV advertising, Android TV, advanced OTT functionalities, and seamless end-to-end encryption – all of which will facilitate additional future offerings and decrease time-to-market of any service for different MultTV operators.
Beenius utilized the existing E2E IPTV system with Linux set-top boxes (STBs) and enabled MultTV to add new Android-based STBs that are providing additional value, with both devices being managed from the same platform for multiple operators.
By unifying content protection at a centralized headend, the Verimatrix VCAS for IPTV solution enables seamless end-to-end encryption of broadcast channels combined with secure locally originated content in a cost-efficient manner.
MultTV uses AWS Elemental Live for HEVC encoding of live channels for delivery to MultTV’s customers. AWS Elemental Live is an on-premises solution by Amazon Web Services (AWS) that processes live video for delivery to broadcast televisions and streaming to internet-connected devices. It allows users to easily and reliably compress live video sources into multiple versions for distribution.
MultTV also uses AWS Elemental Conductor Live to easily and efficiently manage their AWS Elemental Live encoders. AWS Elemental Conductor is an on-premises management system for AWS Elemental Live encoder nodes. It allows users to easily and efficiently manage individual encoders or large encoder clusters.
