Introduction

Alef Media Streaming is a next generation Video Platform for short form, long form, live form, live social, etc for the content providers and advertisers. With Alef Media Streaming, you can make content and content aggregation with streaming technology allowing the content providers to focus on what they do best.

Brief Highlights

Alef Media Streaming provides a micro-backend to content providers and content aggregators. The Edge enables content providers to innovate, without having to worry whether or not the network can handle it.

Enterprises and application developers are not necessarily streaming application companies and they should not be concerned with the technology requirements. Instead, they can focus on what they do best – creating content. You can find an endless number of streaming applications resulting in a fragmented market. The responsibilities of who does what are flipped. Enterprises want to be able to create the content and distribute the content – not the security of the application, the quality behind its delivery and latency issues, etc.

Once connected to Alef’s Media Streaming Backend, application developers can rapidly create new products and services like:

  • Enhance Existing Apps – Enhancing OTT offerings leveraging the Edge with immersive features. Placing content at the Edge is more than just immersive delivery. It provides the ability to create an enhanced user experience through a variety of features.
  • Video Crunch – Entertainment and content are both mobile. The rise of using mobile devices for entertainment and advertising is undeniable. Content must be quick and enjoyable. With Alef Media Streaming, you can create digestible short form content chosen and specified for end users to consume.
  • “My TV” – Leveraging big data is key to a personalized and engaging experience. Using Telco Big Data, OTT’s can create personalized and suggested content chosen by/for you to consume.
  • TV – Video screens in the back seats of cars faded out due to technical limitations. With Car.TV, you can stream content to the screen without any concerns about application handoff, providing passengers with new forms of entertainment.
  • Enterprise Applications – Enabling Enterprises to communicate with employees through video. The content is chosen by Enterprises for employees to consume is only available to the employees.
  • Venue Tube – Streaming of specific content chosen by the venue provider and only available at the specific location. Dependent on the venue, conferences, keynotes, sporting events, concerts, etc. a stream of the content is available for attendees to view at the location.
  • Smart Surveillance  Today, facial recognition is done through image-based machine learning. With Alef Media Streaming, the image-based machine learning can be turned into video-based machine learning. This turns video surveillance streams into intelligent video streams where continuous processing can be done at the edge.
  • Venue Replay – Providing fans at venues a video on demand (VoD) experience on their mobile devices of what is happening at the game. The replays are stored at the Edge and available to fans through stadium applications for their viewing.

Alef Media Streaming has distinct set of product features which can be leveraged:

  • Discovery, Delivery and Distribution
  • Ultra-HD Content
  • “A La Carte” Offerings
  • Sponsored Content and Rating Groups
  • Enhanced OTT Offerings (New Products)
  • Live and VoD Channels
  • Live Upload and Live Viewing for Social
  • Immersive Edge Delivery
  • Leverage Telco Big Data
  • Edge Advertising Insertion

Alef Media Streaming can be deployed and leveraged by Enterprises to directly solve their technology backend issues. Enterprises can leverage a secure, intelligent and manageable Streaming Application for their employees allowing them to focus on the content – instead of the issues around a streaming application.
