Content Monetization
Today's
video
marketplace
involves finding the best path to
serve all screens, beyond TV, with
quality linear and on demand
video services. That means
gaining expertise in a new
technology,
in
advanced
compression
(MPEG-4/AVC),
security (AES encryption, digital
rights management (DRM)), and
adaptive bit rate encoding, to
make sure your signal and your
show is "right-sized" for the
subscriber’s display.

Origination & Uplink
 At our state-of-the-art head-end in Manhattans NY, we're equipped and ready to
ingest your linear assets via traditional satellite or over our fiber-based content
delivery network (CDN).
 To ensure secure delivery, we provide linear services in MPEG-4 and apply advanced
encryption (AES) to your assets from end-to-end – meaning from you to the signal
drop-off point (usually the head-end or central office.)
Transport
 We receive and distribute linear and VOD assets via satellite, or through our fiberbased video Content Delivery Network (CDN).
 We can deliver on demand content to any head-end, regardless of on-site equipment
types, transmitting secure, reliable multicasts via Intelsat's Galaxy 28 satellite.
 The same content can also be conveyed over a secure 10-Gbps super head-end with
points of presence (POPs) in L.A., Chicago, New York, and Miami. Note that ABR
(Adaptive Bit Rate) and Deep Library access are only available via the fiber CDN.

Encoding
 Because different service providers are in
different states of readiness to deploy VOD
on multi-platform/multi-screen video, we
employ a range of encoding techniques. We
receive your content in your format of
choice, encode or transcode it into the
formats required by video service providers
(cable, telco, DBS).
 Our encoding options include a variety of
formats - MPEG-2, MPEG-4 (H.264), and
Adaptive Bitrate Streaming (ABS). For
reaching existing digital set-tops (MPEG-2)
and newer, IP-based screens (MPEG-4, ABS),
formats are available over satellite or
through fiber CDN distribution. We support
both SD and HD delivery, and ensure that
related metadata is compatible with all
combinations of server, middleware, guide,
set-top, and advertising systems.

 On demand video may be encoded in
a variety of formats – MPEG-2,
MPEG-4, and Adaptive Bitrate
Streaming (ABS), and ensure that
associated metadata is compatible
with all combinations of servers,
middleware, program guides, set-top
boxes, and advertising systems.
 Web-based and dynamic metadata
modification methods can optimize
unique VOD packaging structures.
This assures that metadata is
accurately and intuitively placed
within your affiliate's VOD menu
system.
Metadata Management
 Together with our Partners Media3
offers experience in content
preparation
and
asset
management. Content preparation
services
are
designed
to
accommodate rapid turnaround,
scheduling growth, and everdeveloping
new
on-demand
programming concepts.
 This means a web-based, dynamic,
metadata modification system,
designed to optimize your unique
VOD programming and packaging
structures and ensures your assets'
metadata is faithfully deposited
into the VOD menus of the service
provider community, in the most
logical and intuitive way.

Multi-Screen Distribution
 Just as the addition of HDTV and VOD to linear subscription television was critical in the
early days of digital video, so is the support of adaptive bit rate and relating streaming
technologies now, to reach additional screens beyond the TV.
 Our managed services suite supports multiple encoding profiles to provide streaming
services on popular Apple and Android devices. The encoded and encrypted streams
are delivered over our national fiber content delivery network (CDN), and protected
such that only authorized devices can view the content.
 By approaching the multi-platform and multi-screen landscape from a managed service
perspective, you sidestep the need for head count and work flow changes to keep up
with the ceaseless and rapid evolution of device types, streaming protocols, and signal
security.

Blackout Management
 Invariably, situations will arise that require local signal blackouts. Primarily, these
revolve around rules from one network to the next.
 The philosophies for signal blackout vary widely, from one program network to
another. Some prefer heavy, automated involvement; others leave it up to
service providers to implement. As a direct result, the techniques and
technologies used to actually blackout individual stations also vary.
 Automated blackout management serves as a sort of universal translator
between you and the service provider community. It spans both sports and nonsports programming blackouts, and can be applied in geographic segments
based on zip codes, DMAs, and related data.
 We make it possible for you to honor any international distribution rights
requirements, and can implement international blackouts based on country
and region. Blackout switching to alternate feeds and/or slates is included, as
well.
Data Collection and Reporting
Media Three Corporation
Secure International Video
Content Monetization
 Media3’s fs|cdn® middleware platform collects and securely stores information on
system health, assets , subscriptions, value added services (VAS), and subscriber
activity. This information is used to generate billing and provisioning reports, and
subscriber usage reports.
 Data collected is also used to
create Call Detail Records
(CDRs),
Subscriber
Management System Reports
(SMS Reports), usage reports
and
external
system
monitoring alerts.
 Data
collection
and
management used for affiliate
and content providers is
provided through CDRs and
the SMS ViewTrack gateway
permitting the measurement
of promotional campaigns
and ongoing tactics.
On-Demand
Media Three Corporation
Secure International Video
Content Monetization
 An On-Demand purchase creates CDR record entries in three databases: the EDGE
(PoP), the NOC SMS, and the SMS ViewTrack. EDGE and NOC databases are not
accessible by an affiliate or content provider; the SMS ViewTrack database provides
read only access to allow the affiliate or content provider to view PPO and PPV
purchase records.
 CDRs for every VOD, PPV and acquisition are
exported from the NOC SMS database via the
fs|cdn® Billing Mediation System (BMS) and
placed in an affiliate accessible folder for
access by the affiliate’s billing system. These
records may be exported to a content provider.
In conjunction with read only access to the
SMS viewtrak database for PPO, PPV and
subscription acquisition the content provider is
provided with a ‘double entry’ audit of OnDemand purchases, subscription acquisition or
cancellation.
Subscriptions
Media Three Corporation
Secure International Video
Content Monetization
 A subscription is a combination of one or more channels that a subscriber (or user)
purchases as a single item. Subscriptions are defined by the Affiliate, and the creation,
modification and deletion of subscriptions is tracked in the NOC SMPS and NOC CDNP
databases, along with the identification of the user that modified the subscription. Every
purchase or cancellation is recorded in the EDGE and NOC SMS databases. Together with
data from NOC EPG database these records are used to create indexed entries in the usage
history database.
 As with On-Demand, a CDR is also created through the BMS and exported to a file for use
by the Affiliate and content provider. CDR totals may be compared to the results of SMS
Reports and Usage Reports generated from the usage history database for audit by the
affiliate and content provider.
Set Top Boxes
Media Three Corporation
Secure International Video
Content Monetization
 Our fs|cdn® middleware platform permits an Affiliate to record inventory assets,
such as Set Top Box’s (STBs), associated with a specific subscriber or user. Assets
may be entered into the system as they are assigned to a subscriber or into general
inventory and assigned to a specific subscriber as deployed. fs|cdn® allows an
asset to be entered and tracked as Affiliate or customer owned; fs|cdn® also tracks
an asset that is reassigned either to general inventory or to another subscriber.

When an asset is assigned to,
modified or removed from a
subscriber, separate entries are
made in the EDGE SMS, NOC SMS
and NOC CDNP databases. These
entries are then used to create
indexed CDRs by the BMS and
exported to a file for use by both
the Affiliate and content provider.
