What is ABR Reception?
Video operators provide business accounts such as hospitality networks and MDUs with PayTV services in parallel with TV services to residential subscribers. As operators migrate residential networks to use multiscreen ABR, they maintain linear QAM-based video for business accounts, resulting in unnecessary duplication and significant operational costs.
The cost of replacing legacy set-top boxes at hospitality sites is high and there is a large percentage of these boxes in the field. For these reasons, operators plan to continue supporting QAM-based linear delivery for the foreseeable future.
To help operators support existing hospitality networks, WISI has created a way to re-use multiscreen video streams for legacy deployments. This removes the duplication. The same ABR streams used to serve residential subscribers and over-the-top deployments can be repurposed to feed the edge.
