The story of
12 channels, SDI to HTTP, 600 Gbps
In January 2018, we were approached by a large European public TV. They were looking for a provider who could design and implement a made-to-measure IPTV/OTT platform for their live stream and VOD internet services. The potential multi-million audience and regular bandwidth peaks reaching over 600 Gbps made the request highly challenging and somewhat irresistible.
The client had a clear idea of replacing their in-house content processing infrastructure as well as their third-party encoding and playback services bringing it all under one roof. By the middle of February, we shook hands with the client and our dev team went down to code and deploy.
The solution involved the signal ingestion over SDI as well as the entire procedure of editing and processing both the linear and non-linear content.
We set up a fleet of HW encoders at the client's facility to acquire the content and transfer it over IP to our datacentre for further processing. Additionally, multiple RTMP mount points were distributed and ready to ingest streams from the off-site broadcast teams.
600 TB, fully backed up storage made a home for the existing video archive while also offering sufficient growth space for a new content acquisition. The playback protocols for live and VOD content ranged from multi-profiled HLS and MPEG-DASH for desktop and mobile to MPEG-TS tuned for a wide range of HbbTV devices.
On the SW side, we provided the client with a customised player with Ad management support along with a powerful dashboard with content management features and advanced analytics.
In the final phase, we connected the streaming stack to the 7 Tbps+ CDN made of hundreds of servers using SSD-only cache, the latest Debian and 40 and 100 Gbps uplinks. The client was able to kick off the new Full HD powered platform two weeks before the first whistle of the football World Cup.
After 4 months in spurts, we took a breath and watched with excitement how their national team's success translated into bandwidth peaks.
