Content managementThe four easy steps of content management explained in simple terms.
Step 1 â€“ encoding
- Feed the signal into an encoder and encode to optimum formats ready for streaming.
- Global Digital Broadcast can provide all training and profiles.
- Hardware encoding is recommended for professional broadcast quality.*
Step 2 â€“ file transfer
- Upload to the Global Digital Broadcast servers via fibre or SDSL.
- Content may also be transferred onto external storage drives and transported to a Global Digital Broadcast data centre.
Step 3 â€“ content administration
- Channels are easily administered, managed and controlled through Global Digital Broadcastâ€™s G-Studio middleware. (Please see middleware page for further details.)
Step 4 â€“ network delivery to the consumer
- Channels are delivered over the internet and via Global Digital Broadcastâ€™s international network/s and through an IP set-top box.
- Channels may be viewed on a PC or compatible media device (such as a mobile telephone, or game console).
- Channels may be viewed on a television set via a Global Digital Broadcast (VEHDA) IP set-top box.
* hardware encoding â€“Â most encoding may be done on a clientâ€™s own PC, but Global Digital Broadcast is also able to encode on the behalf of a client (for an additional cost) and/or recommend a range of professional hardware encoders from different manufacturers. These are generally based on the world-renowned Osprey video card. The real advantage of these turnkey systems is their flexibility, quality and stability, enabling many different codecs for different devices as well as multiple, simultaneous encodes (including live broadcasting) with ease.Â
