Get Success In Video Streaming With Telebreeze’s Reliable IPTV Solutions
The age of cable television is coming to a close, and IPTV is emerging as its successor with good reason. With IPTV, consumers have access to the media they need – and the information or entertainment that comes with that – on demand. Through the various improvements on networks and devices, streaming video feeds is now much easier. IPTV streaming process is indeed beginning to re-shape the world of television.
IPTV streaming is made possible by transcoding servers. Traditionally, transcoding was primarily about converting media files to different formats so that it can be played using a specific device. Now, the end goal remains the same, although the focus is now on converting files in order to make them compatible with modern media players such as smart phones, tablets, laptops, and smart TVs.
The Transcoding Server And The IPTV Streaming Process
The transcoding server works by decoding an encoded content and simultaneously creating different time-aligned versions of the video, varying in terms of bitrate and frame size, to give the ability for adaptive video streaming. The server transforms the received TV content so that it can be distributed across many different endpoints in a network, which may include a smart TV, a TV set-up box, or a mobile device. Basically, the main function of this server is to give fluid video streaming capabilities to viewers regardless of their hardware and internet connection.
Telebreeze’s media server has load balancing and adaptive video streaming, which makes smooth distribution of content possible. The media server software is integrated with tools such as the Telebreeze’s Coder which ensures that the highest possible video quality is produced, as well as the Middleware that enables you to deliver top-notch IPTV/OTT service to your subscribers.
The transcoding server plays an essential role in IPTV streaming. Internet protocol-based Television, as the name implies, is a live video streaming server that can provide live content, time-shifted videos, and video on demand through the internet. The IPTV streaming process starts with transcoding the acquired TV content and transporting it to the streaming media servers, such as linux streaming server. Afterwards, the transcoded video is distributed across the network, so users can stream the video seamlessly or do multicast video streaming. While IPTV streaming is available on computers and mobile devices, it can also be done over television. You just need a set-top box to connect internet programs and services to the TV.
Video broadcasting using Content Delivery Network (CDN)
Moreover, the process of content delivery is itself another interesting process. After the acquired TV content enters the transcoding server, the re-encoded version is then stored across many different live video streaming server, such as the Linux streaming server. Video broadcasting, however, only starts from this point. Basically, broadcasting transcoded videos is the distribution of the videos across various end points of a network, called node servers, across the world; this network is called the Content Deliver Network or CDN. CDN is not necessarily a core part of the IPTV streaming or multicast video streaming process, but it is responsible for adaptive video streaming and preventing crashes and system overloads. Instead of streaming videos from a single server, the CDN caches the transcoded videos from the streaming media server of live streaming solutions, such as Linux streaming server, to all its node servers, scattered across the world. The server then pinpoints the location of the request for a video broadcasting feed and links it to the nearest node server. As such, video broadcasting across distances and geographical locations are only made possible because of the CDN.
IPTV Streaming Media Players
Netflix, Hulu, Pandora, and Youtube are just a few of the more popular video streaming platforms today. Many users access these sites on their computers as well as on their Smart TVs. If neither is available, a set-top box can link these players to the ordinary TV. Apple, Amazon, and Google have also joined the list of live streaming solutions by releasing the Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Google Chromecast respectively. Plex TV is another one, but it uses a Linux streaming media server.
