The Channel Store (TCS)

TCS, the TVUP television head, concentrates all the latest generation technological advances for the optimization of the distribution of television channels via OTT, both live and in all its derived benefits: program restart, pause, repetition of a play, cloud recordings or access to authorized programs broadcast during the last seven days.

Contributions

TVUP has a Data Processing Center (CPD) in each market in which it operates and has different points for the contribution of channels in the territory in addition to the CPD itself. Thanks to this, the signals of content providers can be contributed in several ways: DTT, SAT and IP.

Transcoding

Thanks to our advanced transcoding process, we offer content adapted to the device that the user is using.
It is not the same to watch a program on a 50-inch television as on a mobile phone, with our technology, we adapt the video bitrate to different profiles, depending on the screen on which the user consumes the content and the type of the user’s network. It is not the same at home with an FTTH, as in a WISP or Satellite Internet installation.

CMS

The Content Management System is a sophisticated system for organising all the content available in each of its natures and arranging it on each user’s device based on all the rules defined commercially and contractually with all the companies that make up the value chain: producers, distributors, platform and operators.

Metadata

Metadata is the rich information that describes each content and each channel. The precision and quality of the data provided are essential for signalling all the programs and, therefore, the quality of the user’s experiences when retrieving them on any of their devices.

DRM

Ensuring the integrity of the content during its end-to-end broadcast is fundamental to meeting the demanding requirements of content owners. The DRM protects all the content managed by TCS and guarantees this integrity and security from end to end; from the acquisition and codification of the content to its reproduction on the end user’s devices. Besides, in the case of the MediaCenter, this protection is compatible with premium UHD (4K) content with Dolby Vision and HDR10 encoding for video, and Dolby Atmos and AAC for sound.

TCS Super node Reflector

All the content comes together on the TCS “origin” server, to which the TVUP operators who want to optimize their operating costs are interconnected directly. This content source is not a proxy to use; it is much more. TCS Supernode Reflector intelligently manages all the packet requests of all the clients of all the operators that use the TVUP platform, optimizing the way of delivery to the final device, at the best quality, with the lowest latency time and in the best way. As direct as possible.

TCS Player Reflector

TCS Player Reflector is a fundamental component of our distributed CDN installed in the different APPs that give access to the platform: MediaCenter, Smart TVs, tablets, smartphones and web. This component brilliantly optimises all the packet requests by taking them in priority from the players closest to the player that demands it.

Through this mechanism, not only does it reduce the requests for packages to the platform’s source server very considerably, the more demands a content has at a given time, such as a sports event, the more efficient the mechanism is, brilliantly solving the problems of concurrency of yesteryear in the world of video OTT.
