For live sports, dedicated MediaScale™ Origin servers are the real MVP

When it comes to watching global sporting events like FIFA World Cup and Super Bowl LVII on TV, the real MVP is the performance of the live video stream. Hearing your neighbors cheer for the goal seconds before you see it on your TV can make for a truly lackluster experience.

So, with two back-to-back global events, and millions of subscribers tuning in, Vecima suited up and delivered a simple yet powerful solution for our customers.

MediaScale™ Origin is a comprehensive platform that enables content service providers to ingest, host, transform and distribute video content to any device, any time, over any network. It integrates the TiVo Experience which offers elegant navigation menus, content recommendations, and a superior video experience. The solution also provides full-featured apps on a variety of platforms, allowing users to stream their content from anywhere on any device.

Adding dedicated Origin servers for live video helps streamline the linear workflow, improve resiliency, and simplify operations. Once the live Origin servers are in place, operators benefit from notably reduced tune times and channel-change times. Dedicated live Origin servers also helps operators provide higher quality live sports in 4K with higher bitrates, without major storage implications.

Video streams don’t need to compete for quality – with dedicated Origin servers for live events, viewers can experience all the highs and lows of the game while getting the high-quality video experience. It’s a win for everyone.


Vecima will showcase its MediaScale portfolio at NAB Show 2023 in Las Vegas, April 16-19.
