Switch Live2VOD provides tools for operators to easily access, manage, edit and republish live content for on-demand viewing and rebroadcasting live streams.
Utilising Switch Media’s powerful cloud based Media Manager, Switch Live2VOD provides a suite of tools and functions that content providers can use to publish on-demand video quickly and easily.
Capture - feeds are captured from one or more IP streams from a variety of sources and stored for any predefined time period, depending on requirements (usually 2-4 weeks).
Encode - video content is encoded by high performance transcoders coordinated by the Switch Media Manager in priority sequence ensuring programs are processed and published.
Store - once encoded, content is permanently stored and can be accessed through the Switch Media Manager.
Manage - video content is available for editing, publishing, expiring and exporting via the Switch Media Manager.
Distribute - once approved, edited video content is distributed as required, whether it be direct to a user interface developed by Switch Media, integrated with a 3rd party platform, supplied via an API and player, or posted to Social Media.
