Hybrid solutions for cloud DVR: meeting the needs of converging legacy and OTT platforms
A change in Cloud DVR (Digital Video Recorder) deployment strategies has been driven by a few factors including regional copyright laws and specific legal restrictions in North America and consolidation between cable and telecom players, especially in Europe. With M&A and increased competition between traditional pay-TV and newer Over-The-Top (OTT) operators, many service providers are streamlining technologies and adopting broader TV strategies to deliver content access features increasingly demanded by subscribers while driving further cost efficiencies.
In this paper, Ericsson will discuss how this may impact technology decisions surrounding time-shifted video solutions and drive adoption of innovative hybrid approaches to Cloud DVR and VOD.
