End to end VOD made simple
If you've ever managed a VOD service as a provider, then it could be the one area where you miscalculated the actual internal operational costs. As most providers have found, offering movies, recordings, catchup, and time-shifting may seem like it can be managed by less than a full-time equivalent person, but in fact, it probably needs several FTE's.
The VOD content provider will either upload the new assets to our server (Secure FTP server or similar) or you will need to periodically check for new files. Once the new files are checked they are downloaded according to some agreed upon interval, usually one or several times a day. Kwiktec automates processes from area files are uploaded, simple, smart, efficient and cost effectient.
All your files will automatically be transcoded to whatever format(s) you need and encrypted with a DRM that you use, unless this is done by your VOD provider (we hate to be the spoiler, but, they are almost never transcoded or protected by the provider). Kwiktec verifies all VOD transcoded outputs to ensure that there are no video artifacts, glitches, AV-sync issues, or anything else that would lower the user experience.

Cost-effective video on demand solution for organizations that publish video content online and need to reach a wide variety of end user devices.
Importing you metadata
Kwiktec automate the import and cache of VOD metadata into our internal database. This allows us to optimize the display of the VOD UI on the output, PC, TV or Mobile devices and enable the subscribers to purchase and watch the VOD Movies as well as creating the required reports for the studios. The metadata files are usually in XML files (i.e.: Cable Labs) and retrieved from an FTP server, a Web-service, REST-API, or HTTP-server depending on your VOD content provider.
Having multiple movie providers is ok, but remember to carefully plan how to uniquely identify the movie assets and the different content providers as to avoid file name and ID collisions.
