VOS SW Cluster

Media Processing Software for IPTV and OTT Preparation and Delivery


Launch channels fast

As a totally infrastructure-independent media processing application, VOS Software Cluster makes it easy for operators to migrate back and forth between different deployment environments. Having an elastic and always up-to-date media workflow enables operators to launch services faster, benefit from flexible costs and ensure consistent functionality across all deployment environments (bare metal or cloud). With the capability to launch services quickly and scale them seamlessly, operators have more time to test new offerings and focus on the creative side of their business, which includes delivering exceptional video quality at low bitrates.
