Eyevinn Announces Interoperability with Amazon Web Services to bring VOD to Live
Eyevinn Technology today announced interoperability between its Consuo product and Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elemental Media Services to help customers create virtual linear 24/7 channels from their already transcoded VOD library.
Content owners are looking for additional ways to monetize their existing VOD library, and consumers would like to have a lean-back TV experience for their online streaming services. Consuo makes this possible by generating virtual live streams from available VOD content. VOD assets created with AWS Elemental MediaConvert can be distributed through Amazon CloudFront as a linear feed, tailored for the specific case.
Consuo is a software component (Docker container) that can be plugged into your online video platform to provide unlimited thematic, regional or personal linear TV channels based on an existing VOD library. Based on a schedule, Consuo uses the already transcoded files and generates a live playlist/manifest that can be distributed to multiscreen clients.
Consuo utilizes VOD assets created with AWS Elemental MediaConvert for ad-opportunity segments, and markers can be inserted later with AWS Elemental MediaTailor to replace the ad-opportunity segments with individually targeted advertising into the video streams. Schedules are stored using a NoSQL database such as Amazon DynamoDB or MongoDB.
With Consuo, content owners can monetize already existing libraries and reduce churn by offering the lean-back TV experience and personalized playlists to consumers. Content owners can easily spin-up virtual thematic channels based on genres, regions or any other criteria.
“Consuo initiated from an open source library and we’re now offering Consuo as a licensed product for commercial usage. A very simple way to create additional revenue streams for your content for a small price”, explains Magnus Svensson, VP Sales and Business Development at Eyevinn Technology.
