Media Preparation

Kaltura’s solutions streamline the entire media preparation and enrichment process, offering a unique SaaS solution for the full workflow - from ingest to delivery and distribution. With telco-grade capabilities, Kaltura’s media preparation module not only makes file preparation easy, it offers an entire chain to enrich the content, with superior content protection and business model enforcement.

Transcoding, content protection, and delivery includes customizable renditions of your media assets (ProRes, audio only).

Ingestion

Set up batch or manual uploads of video, audio, images, subtitles, and EPG files. Use drop-folders or Aspera for ultra-fast uploads. The video path accepts any ingest format and includes multi-bitrate transcoding. The metadata path accepts any XML format, and includes captions support. The content is secured and encrypted throughout the entire preparation process.

Data Enrichment

Leverage enhanced metadata to improve content discovery, social media promotion, and user engagement. Metadata ingestion can be done using the Kaltura OTT TV XML format or ADI 2.0/3.0 standard, drawn from multiple sources and normalized so it can be easily ingested, managed, and presented to the user. Easily handle customizable thumbnails and multiple subtitles. Enriched metadata supports all business models, including SVOD, TVOD, and AVOD. Ad-stitching enables display of ads on any device and bypasses ad blockers.

HD Transcoding

Kaltura offers industry-leading transcoding for both standard definition and high definition (SD/HD) VOD and live linear channels in MPEG-2 and MPEG-4/H.264. Transcoding includes any to any video and audio transcoding, picture-in-picture, audio level adjustment, full DVB multiplexing and scrambling, as well as genlock with an exceptionally low delay.
