Streaming

NED uses the same architecture for its streaming services that it uses to broadcast the online television signals for television networks in 10 Latin American countries.

That architecture is comprised of physical and web-based components to cover all of our clients’ video processing and serving needs.

BROADCAST

Capture and Encoding:

01

NED uses dedicated portable equipment capable of connecting to a switch directly through  SDI or HDMI. This equipment transforms the signal into a transportation format to be sent to the cloud.

 

Transportation from Source:

The source signal is sent to the cloud, either using the connectivity available on the website or else using a mobile bonding solution to build bandwidth where no other connectivity exists.

 

Packaging

02

The formats are packaged in an HLS stream with ABR functionality ans dent to the content delivery servers.

Transcoding

03

Using a cluster of high-performance cloud-based servers specialized in video processing, the source signal is received and transcoded into multiple formats to accommodate a wide range of devices and connectivities.

 

Content Delivery

NED’s content delivery platform is built on a a world-class Content Delivery Network:  Akamai Cloud Services

This allows NED to serve contents in an intelligent way from a network of data centers located in the same country where the contents are being consumed.
