Switch Media’s Role
Switch Media’s cloud based video content management system, the Switch Media Manager, was chosen to capture, ingest and encode major national network content to then publish for easy access via the EnhanceTV Direct website.
Switch Media’s in-house design and development team worked closely with ETV in the specification and design of the service, with the platform needing 100% accessibility to the Switch Media Manager to provide consistent user access to the EnhanceTV Direct service at all times.
The Switch Media Manager provides workflow management, transcoding services, storage, metadata management, user authentication and data security capabilities, utilising our online streaming server to support concurrent streams and playback on the ETVD website.
