JUGGLING A COMPLEX ARRAY OF OPTIONS
Facing an ever-changing consumer landscape, today’s television broadcasters juggle a complex array of content-distribution options. In addition to high-quality legacy models, they manage—and seek to profit from—streaming, video-on-demand, and subscription formats. While their core task remains program distribution, they also substitute content across multiple pathways; dynamically control bandwidth, ratings, and metadata; and access contribution content over multiple channels while simultaneously assuring full redundancy.
Crystal provides an advanced monitor and control software platform for video distribution that configures, monitors and controls equipment and devices to predict, detect and react to problems. Our unified dashboard then guides operators and engineers toward speedy analysis, diagnosis and repair, with a single, easy-to-understand interface regardless of what company manufactured each device.
Crystal also makes it possible for content owners, MVPDs and OTT providers to offer OTT capabilities as good as – or better – than current linear TV, and to do it anywhere and anytime. This includes automatic production of rights-cleared, linear-to-OTT channels and live-to-VOD, dynamic ad insertion and catch-up TV that is accurate to the millisecond.
