MediaKind Video Storage and Processing Platform (VSPP)
For cable companies, multiple service operators (MSOs), telcos and content providers who need a cost efficient, reliable solution for massively scalable video storage and recording that exceeds stringent performance requirements, the MediaKind Video Storage and Processing Platform (VSPP) is the only field proven, large scale software-based solution that provides resiliency, very high throughput, and virtually hands-off maintenance. This platform is highly optimized to minimize hardware footprint and provide the best possible TCO.
Supported use cases
Cloud based DVR applications enable service providers to offer a DVR service without the need todeploy or upgrade to expensive DVR boxes at the subscriber site. By locating the storage and streaming at the network operation center and running an RS-DVR client software at the subscriber site, operators can offer a full DVR service without the need of hardware upgrades at the subscriber.
Dynamic origin server
The origin server is a scale out media storage system that can also perform content transformation, and streaming. The origin ingests MPEG-TS CBR and ABR, and transforms them on-the-fly to RTSP and different OTT formats, thus eliminating the need to store multiple formats.
VSPP tiered architecture
Supports different tiers to address specific streaming patterns as well as content popularity.
With an ongoing transformation to the full-blown Media Edge for the legacy and OTT delivery.

Kiloview CUBE R1 Recorder System
Equipped with dual hot-swappable SSD slots, CUBE R1 supports non-stop recording. Both SFP and Ethernet connections allow for different network environments."
NEA-DVR® is a flexible and scalable Cloud DVR that integrates storage directly within the Cloud DVR streaming servers. This hyper-convergent storage system, called EDS, was designed specifically for video and has several benefits.
You can scale up your streaming or storage capacity when needed, to meet growing demand. But more capacity doesn’t need to mean more space in the data centre: we can add storage disks to existing servers, which keeps operating costs down.
NEA-DVR with EDS is also a low-latency solution. It is highly efficient, with lower CPU and RAM usage compared to NAS solutions, and maintains optimal performance in the case of a rebuild during maintenance operations.
Plus, by packaging content Just-in-Time, NEA-DVR makes content available on all streaming protocols available today and through any new ones that come up in the future. Just-in-Time packaging also allows you to reduce bandwidth costs and the amount of storage you need, by sending video assets to end-user devices in real-time, instead of pre-packaging them in each streaming protocol.
NEA-DVR supports individual EPG-based or instant-based recordings, is encoder agnostic and complies with both Private Copy and Shared Copy models.
- Access EDS storage seamlessly to improve customer satisfaction and ultimately, ARPU
- Optimised EDS provides high availability and improves ingest / playback performance
- Supports individual EPG-based or instant-based recordings
- Infinite Buffer streamlines asset and storage management, so you gain up to four times more capacity
- Encoder agnostic (EBP Cablelabs)
- Supports Private Copy and Shared Copy models
