Solution Advantages
  • High-Quality and Cost-Effective

    Efficient media asset management console to control content uploads, downloads, storage, transcoding, and publishing.

  • Dynamic and Scalable Adjustment

    Dynamic and on-demand transcoding resource adjustment to ensure high-speed and stable transcoding services.

  • Easy Video Editing

    Online video editing for adding subtitles, special effects, and watermarks, all without having to download plug-ins or additional software.

  • Product-Level APIs

    Comprehensive server APIs and easy-to-understand access documents, facilitating better interconnection; event notification callback for acquiring transcoding task execution status in real time.

Business Challenges
  • High Input Costs

    Self-built VOD services require a large amount of development workload to meet standard business requirements, imposing an extremely high investment and maintenance burden.

  • Suboptimal Resource Utilization

    Common VOD services cannot achieve elastic resource scaling on demand, finding it difficult to support high access concurrency. This adversely impacts enterprises across maturity stages, but especially those growing fast.

  • Inefficient Editing Processes

    Most video storage and publishing platforms do not allow even simple audio and video editing, requiring users to locally download the files and use external specialized processing tools, causing much friction during the content editing process.

  • Interrupted Playback

    Enterprise networks may themselves be ill-equipped to fulfill high access concurrency and large-scale video retrievals, ultimately leading to instances of video playback failure or frame freezing.
