Mediamplify® is the one stop shop multi-platform media distribution for web, mobile, and Cable TV systems. Mediamplify® enables a cloud-based infrastructure to be connected with Cable TV head ends or Multi-System Operators (MSOs), just as Comcast, AT&T, CLARO, TIGO Home, among thousands of Cable/Satellite systems around the world with over 1 Billion viewers.
As such, EGLA’s has coined the term “Cloud to Cable™” which means that content available in that cloud platform can also be broadcasted to Cable TV as well seamlessly and with minimum Cable TV content can also be available in the cloud and to any connected device, all in one unified platform, Mediamplify®.
Mediamplify® is the platform that merges the cloud and Cable TV facilitating the offering of TV and Video Cable TV content in mobile devices and any other connected platforms as well as delivering Music, Video, and TV content commonly available in connected devices and mobile to Cable TV systems.
What is Cloud to Cable™?
Cloud to Cable™ is a patent-pending technology that brings HTML5 generated content to a cable operator head end in the format and reliability required in a traditional MSO. Hence, any HTML5 website or service with video, TV, social media, can be broadcasted to a Cable Operator without major technological challenges.
How Cloud to Cable™ Music Works?
The Cloud to Cable™ Music Platform uses the power of the cloud to scale and create server instances that handle music/audio playlist management, music encoding, playlist, Digital Rights Management (DRM), while delivering audio with the highest quality assurance. Additionally, metadata and Application Programing Interfaces (APIs) assist with the development of mobile applications to stream music from multiple music genres that are mastered by a DJ, a machine learning algorithm, or created by end users.
Broadcasting to Cable TV™
Our Cloud to Cable TV™ technology includes a cloud storage platform and all the required software and intelligence to broadcast content from the cloud to any cable TV operator. Once content, playlists, and music are available in our cloud the music is delivered to the Cable TV headed to our edge servers co-located in the cable operator premises.
Streaming to Web, Mobile, and Connected Devices (Internet TV)
The music available in Medianplify® can be streamed to mobile devices, web, tablets, Smart TVs and any connected devices such as the Chromecast® and Apple TV®. Internet TV is a reality with Mediamplify.
