Media Three Corporation Secure International Video Content Monetization 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.
