ATLANTA, March 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Tulix Systems, a leading provider of over-the-top (OTT) streaming solutions and CDN services, today announced the release of Cloud Playout, its new cloud-based playlist service. The system replaces UniStream Playlist, which is used by broadcasters to remotely generate live linear feeds and stream them to any internet-connected device.
Using Cloud Playout's intuitive user interface, video files are uploaded to Tulix's servers and scheduled to play back in any desired sequence days or weeks in advance. This allows users to create around-the-clock broadcasts from recorded content. Broadcasters can also include advertisements in their streams, either through direct insertion in the Cloud Playout scheduling system or on-the-fly with ad-insertion and content-replacement systems.
The new Cloud Playout is a complete overhaul of the previous system with seamless file-to-file transition and a powerful back-end created using the latest technology. The system is based on strong core features that maintain simplicity and accessibility while providing the highest level of playout quality with numerous important features, including analytics and embeddable players for the generated live feeds and all uploaded VOD assets.
Using Cloud Playout offers numerous benefits to broadcasters compared to traditional hardware-based solutions. The system and playback scheduling can be managed in real-time from anywhere in the world and does not require the purchase of costly equipment. Generating the stream directly from Tulix's data centers also eliminates the types of problems that occur when a source stream suffers from connectivity issues in the process of uplink to ingest servers from a hardware-based playout solution.
"Cloud Playout gives anyone with a library of recorded content the ability to create seamless professional broadcasts," said Nino Doijashvili, the company's EVP. "Our customers using the system include TV stations, religious broadcasters, music video channels, and other organizations representing the broad spectrum of broadcasters, in terms of both content and budgets. Cloud Playout represents months of working directly with these customers to create a comprehensive system with powerful features that addresses their needs and allows them to provide 24/7 content to users on all devices around the world."
