Linear Broadcast

Today's complex linear broadcast world is a mix of hundreds of channels, DVB, metadata file formats, conditional access schemes and middleware layers. In addition, there's the need to regionalize channels. In this daunting landscape, how can television service providers organize and automate their electronic programming guide (EPG) metadata ingest and provisioning?
 
SeaChange Linear Broadcast solutions provide DVB (and non-DVB) functionality for EPGs, scheduling, PVR signaling, as well as integration with traffic automation systems.
 

Benefits:

  • SeaChange Casis can generate all necessary DVB-SI / MPEG-PSI metadata for EPGs and allows service providers to easily schedule conditional access criteria. Provides ability to update firmware/middleware of DVB set-top boxes in the field through over-the-air software downloads (distributed data play-out or DVB-SSU).
  • SeaChange Stagis automatically collects schedule data from different sources and normalizes it for EPG and VOD applications, eliminating manual labor and reducing operational costs.
  • SeaChange Captis captures all transport stream data, bit by bit. This ‘compliance recording’ system can be used to monitor outgoing streams, enabling off-line stream analysis.
  • SeaChange Spectris lets service providers monitor the operational state of broadcast and VOD systems in order to track and prevent any issues and safeguard reliable services to subscribers.
