  • MediaFlex Video Operating System white paper
    With the explosion of video content over all kinds of networks, operators (DTH, IPTV, cable and WebTV) are increasingly required to provide a multi-screen service to their end users. This makes their bouquet more attractive to subscribers. With multi-screen applications, customers can enjoy their favorite series, movies, entertainment shows and sport events wherever they may be and on a multitude of different devices (phones, tablets, computers and TV). From an operator standpoint, management of a multi-screen system is relatively challenging. This white paper describes the main features of Thomson Video Networks MediaFlex, a dedicated and innovative video operating system. This system is part of the ViBE VS7000 for multi-screen applications based on standard Hewlett-Packard 1RU/6RU and 10RU hardware. MediaFlex offers a single entry point for managing the complexity of multi-screen systems, including load balancing and integrated redundancy features. It has been designed as a future-proof platform to accommodate all new technologies such as HEVC and MPEG-DASH.
