Managed services for distribution are still primarily used for cable, satellite, or IPTV. Many managed service providers have started offering multiplatform OTT solutions
Goals and Objectives
Managed services for distribution will become cloud-based for all platforms. Redundancy, latency, reliability, security, and interactive services support will be paramount for cloud-based distribution services. Managed services for distribution will also support subscription only, hybrid, and free ad supported television (FAST) services.
Cloud-based IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS solutions will be combined and used by managed service providers to offer turnkey solutions. AI/ML technologies will be used for workflow processing throughout the distribution content delivery chain and business cycle.
Use Case Summary
Networks and television station groups will use turnkey managed services for integrated, multiplatform, cloud-based playout solutions. The motion picture industry will use cloud-based managed distribution services for direct-to-consumer business models. Many cloud-based managed service providers will offer end-to-end turnkey solutions that include production, distribution, and monetization services.
