CBS Sports – Cloud Production to OTT
The sports contribution demonstration showcased at the NAB Show involves a solution for customers who need a robust and flexible network to distribute event feeds to multiple geo-diverse takers and rights holders, with sync delivery regardless of location, the ability to extend the network beyond managed infrastructure, and the ability to have takers self-manage stream selection, with monitoring to the point of handoff.
The proposed solution involves using internet delivery with a multi-tenant UI, wide ARQ format support, configurable for differing destination needs, end-to-end active protection, a Nimbra 414 edge appliance interface, providing metrics and monitoring from the appliance/handoff, and deterministic sync delay for all destinations.
The benefits of the solution include a self-service portal for all takers to cut down operational overhead and reduce platform costs, a usage-based model that makes event-based usage very commercially efficient, and OPEX saving in using unmanaged internet delivery rather than capacity on managed networks.
