Multiscreen Stream Packager
Adaptive stream preparation for high-value Internet video services
Part of the ProMedia® family of optimized multiscreen and production workflow solutions, ProMedia Package is a software-based, carrier-grade adaptive stream preparation system for deploying secure, high-value Internet video services. Multiple streams of H.264 video and associated audio — including up to 10 different videos and eight different audio languages per service — can be combined selectively into any of the most popular HTTP adaptive bitrate protocols, and secured by seamless integration with multiple Digital Rights Management (DRM) vendors.
By efficiently handling metadata information such as language, captions or ad signaling/insertion on input and output, ProMedia Package can scale to support hundreds of simultaneous streams. Packaging can be split across multiple machines for efficient media processing, and simply monitored and managed either by a web-based GUI or the Harmonic NMX™ Digital Service Manager video network management solution.
