Accelerate the adoption and monetization of personalized, streaming video services

Velocix created the Enhanced Video Experience (EVE).

Velocix EVE was born to be the foundation of next generation IP video streaming. It adds session-awareness to multiscreen video delivered over IP-based CDNs, allowing you to deliver more personalized, more dynamic and more equitable video service experience to every connected device. With Velocix EVE you can leverage network intelligence and subscriber data to differentiate your video services and drive more value out of your investments in IP infrastructure. Velocix EVE enables you to simplify networks and remove costs as IP video streaming scales to the mass market.

What new capabilities does Velocix EVE enable

Velocix EVE leverages network intelligence and subscriber data to bring new capabilities to the IP delivery infrastructure, including:

  • Insert unique, local, regional or universal content into a stream at anytime during its playout, including targeted Ad or Emergency Alert System notifications
  • Dynamically control the choice of video quality (i.e. bit rate) delivered to the end user based on real-time network conditions, device used, billing preferences and usage thresholds
  • Efficiently repackage content “on the fly” at the edge of the network based on the device used for watching content
  • Provide faster channel start and faster channel change by modifying the initial streamlets requested

Why Velocix EVE is unique

Velocix EVE is the first solution to embed session-aware video processing functions into the delivery infrastructure. This brings two key innovations to content delivery:   

  • Velocix EVE establishes a separate control plane to bring session awareness  to HTTP Adaptive Streaming, allowing for personalization of content and experience management at a user level.
  • Velocix EVE introduces Rule Based Transformation  allowing for dynamic repackaging and manipulation of content at the edge.
