COMPARING JUST-IN-TIME PACKAGING WITH CDN STORAGE FOR VOD APPLICATIONS
Over-the-Top video offerings are reaching tremendous scale, fueled by the rapid growth in multiscreen video consumption. At the same time, the number of viewing devices has skyrocketed, as well as the numbers of titles and video content options. Together, these factors have created a complex and costly video storage challenge for OTT providers and distributors. In simple math – if there are 1,000 device types and 10,000 titles, a provider may need to create (“package” for a particular screen) and pre-store ten million variants – which could then be multiplied by other factors such as content delivery network (CDN) and geographic distribution factors as well as regulatory requirements.One of the most effective methods to minimize the number of stored variants is to use Just-In-Time Packaging (JITP), where the packaging of video assets for the particular screen type is managed just-in-time, rather than being previously stored.
