How it Works

Together, the Inca ABR Transcoder 3840 and the MOBITV CONNECT platform empower operators to offer full cable line-ups to end users using next-gen video delivery to multiscreen devices, removing the need for set-top boxes and truck rolls.

MOBITV provides a managed service or an in-network solution:

  1.  The managed service is a fully hosted solution where video services are transmitted from MOBITV headends situated in various North American locations.
  2.  The in-network solution allows customers to maintain their own headend and manage all equipment on-prem.

WISI’s 3840ABR is a flexible option that can be deployed for both MOBITV solutions.

The 3840ABR ingests local and national services in MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 and transcodes these inputs to multiple frame-aligned MPEG-4 profiles with integrated monitoring and analytics. Video streams are transcoded using a hardware processing engine providing predictable density and performance in a power efficient 1RU chassis. The 3840ABR is fully compliant with MOBITV recipes for HD and SD services and includes multiple de-interlacing options for broadcast sources.

MOBITV CONNECT ingests multiple bitrate output streams from the 3840ABR, packages them into HLS or Dash chunks and encrypts them for delivery to subscribers. Video services are streamed to the fully customizable MOBITV CONNECT app supported on devices such as Apple TV, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV and Roku.
