The deployment also utilises Imagine’s SelenioFlex™ File, a file-based processing solution that is running in the public cloud. SelenioFlex File resources can be applied to any pre-produced KidsClick content requiring transcoding, format conversion, bit-rate adjustments, audio processing or any other modifications before being played out to affiliates.
SBG has centralised operations for KidsClick at its Las Vegas Network Operations Center (NOC). SBG operators keep tabs on feeds coming out of the public cloud using EPIC™ MV multiviewers from Imagine Communications. Also powered by Zenium, the UHD-ready EPIC MV enables SBG to monitor from its Las Vegas NOC the quality of program content as it is being distributed to the various SBG affiliates. Imagine worked with LTN Global Communications, which provided a managed and secure path from the public cloud to the individual stations, to assure the successful and timely delivery of content to the SBG affiliates.
The microservices-based nature of Versio Platform and other Imagine solutions provides complete portability of operations, enabling media companies to select a deployment model that best supports their current pace of transition and comfort level with next-generation architectures.
