IMAKE Launches New OpenVision 4.1 Session Resource Manager
IMAKE Software has launched OpenVision 4.1 Session Resource Manager. Current deployments into tier one, global satellite and telecommunications companies affirms the SRM's open-systems design, performance, and value. The OpenVision SRM solution simplifies and supports the deployment of multiple emerging services, including switched broadcast, targeted advertising, VOD, games and broadband service.
IMAKE's newest release of OpenVision SRM is based on an open-systems design which enables operators to open up their networks and pick best-of-breed video server, navigation server, and set top box technology. OpenVision SRM currently supports DSM-CC, RSVP, and RTSP protocols, with future support for SIP protocols. It readily integrates with Cisco network equipment, Broadbus video servers, Alticast clients, DigiSoft.tv clients, with other video servers and set top box clients to be announced throughout Q4 2006 and 2007.
In terms of performance and value, OpenVision SRM optimizes the use of expensive bandwidth and maintains minimum levels of quality of service (QoS) which are critical to retaining active subscribers, reducing churn, and maximizing revenue. OpenVision SRM does this in several ways: it improves network utilization of digital services by dynamically allocating service-to-network capacity and validates available network bandwidth allowed to subscribers. In addition, it provides real-time network monitoring and management of client bandwidth on a per-session basis, from session start to session tear-down and supports online activation of resources to meet session demand spikes. System reliability has the biggest impact on subscriber behavior and purchase patterns, and OpenVision SRM helps operators maintain maximum system reliability, QoS levels, and therefore the financial health of the operator. Enhanced capabilities include the ability to take a video server off-line for maintenance in a customer friendly way.
In terms of usability, OpenVision SRM draws on years of experience in the On-Demand world and provides detailed reporting and session metrics that allows the operator to see trends, to project future server needs, scale to meet millions of subscribers, package products and services better, or identify subscribers who might churn or possibly upgrade.
Increasingly, On-Demand is an Ad-supported business model. The OpenVision SRM supports targeted Ad insertion by providing the play list to the video server for both VOD features, promotions and Ads. When combined with an entitlement or subscriber management system, the OpenVision SRM can provide highly targeted Ads based on historical usage patterns, geographic, demographic, and content genre profiles.
