Network Personal Video Recorder

Today, content providers have an exciting opportunity to increase the value and features for their subscribers. For one, there is an ever-growing library of content they can open up and offer for on-demand viewing. This can now be implemented thanks to the latest generation of fast networks and available bandwidth, which make it possible to transfer the intelligence and storage of set- top boxes into the network. 
 

Connected TVs, tablets and smartphones lack the capacity to store large amounts of content for the subscribers to view later. But service providers can now offer networked personal video recorder services, where the content is retrieved from a network-based storage. A requirement is of course that new devices can be easily integrated, so that users experience a high quality of service and viewing. All this can be into the network by streaming from a centralized network operation center, reducing the maintenance and operation costs. 

 

The need

  • On-demand content access on every device
  • An efficient, easy, and guaranteed service for subscribers

  • New revenue opportunities from content creation and delivery

  • Reduce maintenance and operation costs

  • Reduce exhausting software and middleware testing

  • Easily manage and update the content

  • Linear scalability with content growth

  • Easy synchronization of data with dynamic network changes
