Content Flow Integration Architecture

High View Content Flow Integration Architecture.png

Perception TVCDN™ Cloud Platform is a unified architecture, designed ground-up to enable rapid integration of any type of content contribution. We provide automated online content ingest workflows designed around the client’s needs. Content can be ingested from any remote source via IP directly into the Perception cloud fabric ready for delivery to all the user base or just to a selected target group.

Content Ingest

Perception cooperates with number of VOD content providers and satellite down-link facilities across all 6 continents with capability of receiving live streams and VoD content over secure IP. All latest video and audio codecs are supported.

VOD contribution via secure FTP (SFTP) upload:

  • H.264 AVC (MPEG4) and H.265 HEVC (MPEG5) with AAC audio in MP4 or MPEG TS container file format together with SRT subtitle files and metadata formatted per ADI.XML standard. VOD assets can be uploaded AB-transcoded or as high-bitrate master files and Perception can provide MBR transcoding as part of managed PaaS service. 

Live channel contribution via secure IP:

  • Perception recommends SRT, the latest very resilient transport protocol that delivers high-quality video at low latency over noisy public networks. Appropriate signal quality levels and encryption requirements are real-time monitored to comply with service level requirements. Or Zixi workflow can be integrated for live stream delivery.

  • EPG metadata ingest is per industry standard XMLTV+ format (XMLTV expanded with tags for JPEG/PNG images).
