Teleste and Edgeware are demonstrating at the ANGA Cable Show a complete integrated video on demand (VOD) solution for cable operators looking to expand their subscriber services into on-demand services.
Enabled by the Teleste MyCast platform, the solution manages the end-to-end service by handling content, integrating with conditional access and subscriber management systems, and providing the user interface with an easy-to-use VOD portal. Teleste Mycast also provides VOD playout control by managing the video channel allocation.
Key to the successful implementation of the service is Edgeware’s Orbit-2X distributed video server. From the server, the video is streamed over cable to the customer’s TV. The commands from consumer’s personal computers and smartphones are mediated through Teleste MyCast to the video server.
Finnish cable operator Turku Cable has already deployed the solution in a VOD test distribution in its cable TV network in the Turku area. When fully implemented, the service will be extended to all cable TV homes connected to Turku Cable network.
