Cisco Videoscape Media Suite consists of four products: Content Management System (CMS), Entitlement, Publisher, and Clients.
Cisco Videoscape Media Suite is the industry's first enterprise-class software platform for powering multicontent digital media services. The Cisco Videoscape platform provides all the download, streaming, and monetization capabilities required by online video services. The platform also provides the ability to manage the sophisticated content bundling required by virtual DVDs and other mixed-media offerings that combine video, audio, games, applications, channels, and programs in innovative digital media bundles.
Cisco Videoscape Media Suite CMS manages all steps in the asset workflow, including metadata management, transcoding, encryption, and distribution to the network. CMS also includes the industry's most sophisticated media packaging and bundling system, which allows complex packages to be modeled, distributed, and monetized as easily as a single asset.
Cisco Videoscape Media Suite provides a comprehensive framework for protecting and distributing content across multiple screens and devices. The platform provides tools for configuring and enforcing business rules, such as download-to-own, subscription, advertising, copy counts, and device restrictions, regardless of where and how consumers access the content. A built-in, centralized rights locker stores and manages user profile data, configured devices, and the list of consumer rights to protected content.
Cisco Videoscape Media Suite supports Microsoft Windows Media Digital Rights Management (DRM), PlayReady, and PlayReady Domain DRM technologies, while providing a pluggable framework to support additional models. The platform offers a framework for entitlement that simplifies integration with existing entitlement and policy systems.
Cisco Videoscape Media Suite Publisher allows video service providers to ingest asset metadata from the Cisco Videoscape Media Suite CMS or any other video management system. Video service providers can then aggregate content sources to produce comprehensive, multilevel content feeds and playlists. These can form the foundation of a web-based video storefront or an aggregated streaming video portal, or can be delivered directly to standardized or custom-built media players. Service operators gain the ability to augment their own content offerings with those from other providers, such as Hulu, CBS, or MTV, and present them in a unified interface.
The Cisco Videoscape Media Suite platform provides management, display, and playback features for digital media content. The platform includes Media Streaming Players (MSP) and Media Download Application (MDA), which are embeddable and skinnable browser-based players in both Adobe Flash and Microsoft Silverlight versions. Each version supports playback controls, a playlist carousel, and standard, full, and widescreen resolutions.
CONTENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (CMS) FEATURES:
Cisco Videoscape Media Suite provides the industry's first enterprise-grade workflow and automation platform for digital media. The platform offers prebuilt workflow processes, including encryption, transcoding, distribution, and productization profiles.
