Managing your multi-screen business today and in the future

A broad range of sophisticated scheduling tools are available for managing linear content, EPG, catch-up TV services and VOD Catalogs together with different content offers.  Comprehensive content management capabilities include advanced rights that can be used to restrict content to specific viewers, geographic territories, devices and time windows and for configuring blackouts accordingly.

 

Broad range of monetization options

The OTTilus Service Manager accommodates a broad range of business models for different services, including free-to-air content distribution models (subject to rights and user security restrictions), tiered subscriptions, rentals, purchases, content syndication or advertising – all supported by user profile and device management.

 

Powerful analytics

Built-in monitoring capabilities at the player end send analytical data back to the Service Manager independently of the delivery network, for QoS and marketing analysis.

 

Open eco-system

The OTTilus Service Manager supports multiple formats, devices and DRMs, by incorporating a set of built-in connectors to third party systems, enabling the smooth delivery of services with the needed flexibility.

Deployment options

The OTTilus Service Manager can be delivered on-premise or on the cloud (AWS).

Our team of experts is available to design the right solution for you taking into account your business needs,  existing systems and infrastructure.

 

Seamless Integration with your Broadcasting Business

Pilat Media’s philosophy is that online video should simply be treated like another delivery platform, leveraging your existing workflows and systems to minimize delivery time while optimizing your available resources.

This is accomplished through a BMS middleware layer which seamlessly integrates your BMS workflow, analytics, metadata, rights management, scheduling and campaign management with your OTT operations.

Through BMS middleware integration, the OTTilus solution gives you the ability to provide TV Everywhere services, launching comprehensive TV services across multiple devices and networks.

Content Factory
 

Robust cloud-based content preparation at your service

The OTTilus Video Platform includes a scalable content factory for live, catch-up TV and VOD.

Using carrier grade hardware and scalable architecture the Content Factory acquires live feeds and provides encoded and encrypted streams in multiple formats.

Unique OTTilus media chunking technologies and an automated workflow enable live content to be available almost instantly on catch-up TV services.

Non-linear media is acquired, transcoded and encrypted using an automated and flexible workflow supporting multi-language capabilities (support for both multiple audio tracks and subtitling tracks), job management and progress notifications.

Content is made available on different CDNs / Video servers according to pre-configured routing rules.

The OTTilus Video Platform Content Factory is provided as a service. Alternatively, depending on your needs and the local network topology, our team of experts will design your content factory taking into account specific acquisition, hosting and hardware options.


Players & Apps
 

Out of the box white label application or a customizable experience

The OTTilus Video Platform provides customizable and feature-rich white label players & apps for mobile, web and TV.

The players and apps are designed to enable a consistent experience across all devices - whether iOS, Android or HTML5 –based - while carefully adapting to each type of device in order to create an optimal TV experience (including VOD catalog, EPG, Catch-up TV, Restart TV, social networks integration and multi language support).

DRM can be enabled on all devices (using downloadable secure players for mobile devices). Client analytics are collected from the players & apps in order to provide marketing and QoS reports.

The players & apps can be used right out of the box, branded with white label templates, or completely customized, designed through our development team or partners. Alternatively the OTTilus Video Platform can integrate with third party applications using a comprehensive set of APIs.

The OTTilus Video Platform is based on technology used by leading broadcasters including channels from Channel 4 UK, BSkyB, Turner Broadcasting, VIACOM and A&E Networks.
