Perception TVCDN is first to unify the content distribution network with the advanced IPTV feature set necessary for a full-service internet TV experience.

Architecture schematic details the components of the Perception TVCDN unified platform from ingest of multi-format feeds through to multiscreen apps.

Perception TVCDN is a specialist infrastructure being rolled out world wide to enable high quality low latency streaming of multichannel live TV services and on demand content.

 

Core streaming nodes are located in key strategic internet global hubs and directly connected via multiple Cisco routers to Hurricane Electric’s IP transit network. We are also peering in key internet exchanges and for any partner telco, we will install a specific edge streaming POP inside their network.

 

Our proprietary Perception Multicast Grid technology manages this network in real time handling content replication, routing decisions and platform management. 

 

Our full service TV headend attached to the TVCDN enables us not only to downlink and encode channels but also to provide a 24 hour monitoring service using both manual and automated systems.

CDN vs TVCDN

CDN vs TVCDN table offers a comparison with Perception TVCDN capabilities versus a traditional CDN.

The traditional CDN, built to move packets of data efficiently across long distances requires significant integration with third party platforms to deliver live and on demand TV, especially when live rewind and visual scrubbing with full preview are required. 

The more third party integration points, the more prone a platform becomes to technical issues and increased cost of operation.

End-to-end Video Streaming Solution

Channel operators and content owners often wish to deliver direct to consumer using their own apps or websites. Today, this requires a CDN and an online video platform. Perception TVCDN unifies these elements providing high quality global streaming with a fully unified on-line video platform built in.

 

Uniquely, our CDN automatically turns linear TV channels into searchable catch-up TV experiences for viewers.

 

Viewers can rewind with the current show or scroll backwards for several days to access any previously broadcast show. Content for which catch-up TV rights are not available can easily be disabled. Our platform wide metadata search also allows viewers to easily find any specific show on any channel within the catch-up window.

Our CDN charges are highly competitive and what’s more, clients get all of the advanced online video platform feature set including 7 day EPG, automated multi-day catch up, cloud PVR and subscriber management included.
