RGB’s first-of-its-kind just-in-time packaging (JITP) capability enables video service providers (VSP) to deliver adaptive bitrate (ABR) video-on-demand (VOD), network digital video recorder (nDVR) and TV Everywhere services without pre-packaging all their video assets in each of the adaptive streaming protocols. By packaging programs on-the-fly into the appropriate protocol only when requested by viewers on a specific device, JITP enables VSPs to manage their storage and bandwidth costs as their multiscreen libraries grow.
JITP is performed by RGB’s TransAct Packager, which currently supports the Apple HLS, Microsoft Smooth Streaming, Adobe HDS and MPEG DASH ABR protocols.About TelcoTV
