Mobile television and on-demand video

Common view In details Print

The m.TVM platform enables the delivery of streaming video to mobile terminals and to computers connected to the Internet.

It is intended for cellular network operators, content and service providers, and Internet portals that publish video content.

A large selection of functional modules enable the creation of solutions of varying complexity, from the management of "live" broadcasts from a television channel site or the review of a small WEB archive of video clips, to large video portals of content aggregators.

The modular architecture provides a capability to increase functionality and throughput of the design as required.

m.TVM - Mobile On-Demand TV and Video

Sources of video resources for m.TVM are:
  • high-frequency signals from television antennas, captured by the m.Ruskeala hardware server and encoded by the m.Producer module;
  • low-frequency video signals from a satellite receiver, video camera, etc. encoded by the m.Producer module;
  • video streams provided by Internet portals, captured by a m.RTSPProxy proxy server and converted by the m.Coder module;
  • media files located at Internet sites, downloaded by the m.Grab module and converted by the m.CPS module;
  • media files downloaded by content providers via the content/service provider WEB interface.

The m.Ring module allows media files to be arranged so as to create a "looping" TV channel capable of incorporating newly downloaded media files without interrupting delivery.

All media files are located in the content repository of the m.CMS content management system.

The m.CMS content management system provides the following:
  • storage for media files;
  • storage and management of media files in a content repository;
  • support for a subscription database containing information on subscriber access privileges to video resources that are accessible on a paid subscription basis;
  • service provider access for registration of content providers and managing their access privileges;
  • moderation of content by service providers;
  • download, preparation for delivery, and publication of content provider media files;
  • furnishing information regarding accessible video resources for a subscriber WAP/WEB portal that takes account of the subscriber's location (if the m.LBSP platform is accessible).
The subscriber WAP/WEB portal:
  • provides the subscriber with information about accessible video resources;
  • supports access billing using the m.Charge module when the subscriber selects a pay-for video resource;
  • enables connection of the mobile terminal to the m.Stream video server for viewing the video resource.

The m.RMS module monitors access to media resources in accordance with the subscriber's access privileges.

The m.Stream video server:
  • authenticates the subscriber requesting access to a video resource with a call to the m.Vradius platform;
  • delivers a video stream to the mobile terminal;
  • includes the m.SQCM quality control subsystem, which selects the optimum codec, image size (m.ACM) and stream rate (m.SCM);
  • supports 3G network features (via the m.3G module).

Platform statistics are collected and processed by the m.Stat application.

System monitoring is performed by the m.Check application.
