Flexible MABR Client

Velocix's low-memory footprint Multicast ABR (MABR) client can run on a wide array of in-home gateways or consumer devices. Client software can dynamically switch between multicast and unicast delivery based on operator-defined rules to maximise network efficiency, manage constraints, and lower scale-out costs.

Seamless switching

Switch seamlessly between multicast and unicast delivery according to operator-defined rules with Velocix's flexible Multicast ABR client. Rules can be configured to control how and when streams convert to multicast delivery based on channel, time, network conditions, or other relevant business factors. Automatically shift streams to multicast when bandwidth is scarce to safeguard your network from demand spikes for live content. Revert back to unicast to support addressable ads and boost stream revenues.


Forward error correction

Reliably deliver multicast streams using powerful standards-based forward-error correction (FEC) technology. Velocix's client implementation communicates with upstream MABR system components using File Delivery over Unidirectional Transport (FLUTE). The FLUTE protocol features congestion controls and FEC to detect and resolve any transmission errors. Missing packets are automatically retrieved and repaired to ensure the seamless delivery of live streams. 


Subscriber-level reporting

Keep an eye on streaming performance and service quality with subscriber-level reporting. Fine-tune configuration settings using detailed data metrics collected from millions of simultaneous MABR viewing sessions. Velocix's MABR client relays the information instantly to upstream MABR controllers, where it can be reviewed using advanced reporting and visualisation tools. Equipped with this data, operators can better understand consumer behaviour and overall user experience, as well as network performance under varying conditions.


Scale-out live stream traffic with an open, standards-based MABR client that delivers the flexibility, efficiency, and cost savings you need to grow your business.
