What is Cloud DVR?

Video consumption is rapidly changing, and creators and distributors of content must take notice of the landscape altering trends in order to remain competitive. As even traditional, linear television viewing rapidly becomes a lean-forward activity, video on demand, time-shifted TV and over-the-top (OTT) services have already tipped the balance of power and rewritten the rules for the media and entertainment industry.

Video providers now have a global audience of active participants defining their own media experiences. With this disruption comes considerable opportunity for content creators and distributors to cost-effectively deliver the personalized media experience that today’s lean-forward consumer demands, while expanding their service offerings and market reach.

Redefining the Consumer Experience

So what is Cloud DVR? Simply put, Cloud DVR enables the recording of a program in the network (cloud), rather than on a home set-top box. This creates opportunities to deliver new feature sets and revenue opportunities, while eliminating issues with limited storage space and challenges in maintaining premises-based equipment. For service providers, it offers storage efficiencies, scalability, flexibility, reduces expensive truck rolls and eliminates the complexity of managing and maintaining expensive set-top-box inventory. For customers, it offers the luxury of accessing content - anytime, anywhere, on any device.

Imagine Communications’ DVR is the next big thing in video consumption. As a fully integrated, end-to-end cloud DVR (cDVR) offering from a single vendor, the solution provides business-transforming opportunities for content distributors and service providers by completely redefining the video consumption experience. With DVR, all content — whether it aired a second ago, a month ago, or years ago — can be stored and played-out from cloud-based servers to any device at a viewer’s command. The software-based, virtualized technology delivers enhanced DVR functionality with the inherent advantages of the cloud — limitless storage, global accessibility to content, and the ability to deliver relevant, higher value, skip-free advertising.

Imagine Communications’ advanced cDVR technologies are enabled by the company’s market-proven line of distribution products Telurio™ Record, Telurio™ Packager and TelurioEdge™ server. In addition, DVR integrates seamlessly with Imagine Communications’ Dynamic Ad Insertion (DAI) solution, enabling the delivery of customer-relevant advertisements to any device and maximizing the monetization of stored content.
