the challenge
the openheadend solution
In order to provide Ultra High Definition content
to its viewers, MCS TV needs to implement a
complete infrastructure able to sustain this new
technological shift.
The new infrastructure needs to provide seamless
commutation between pre-recorded programmes
and live events.
Pre-recorded
Programmes Ingest
The OpenHeadend solution ingests
all MCS TV pre-recorded TV shows
in 4K HEVC format and broadcasts
them using the embedded playout
module.
No need to decode and re-encode files
as this groundbreaking solution is able to
process all streams as they are received, thus
retaining optimum image quality. To playout live events, the OpenHeadend
software switches to the satellite ASI
Stream before redistributing it.

the results
Eliminating the needs for
costly,
space-consuming
and task-specific equipment,
the OpenHeadend solution
combines many features and
runs several processes within a single commodity
hardware.
Therefore, MCS TV only needs a single IT-based
OpenHeadend platform operating on industry
standard IT hardware, which is controlled via an
intuitive user interface, to benefit from all the
functionalities that would previously require
multiple legacy systems such as an expensive 4K
encoder or a 4K video switcher.
