Introduction

GRIDSHOT® stands for a reliable, flexible and efficient playout / Video On Demand (VOD) service. We have a long standing record in providing a stable and secure broadcast signal at high quality and low cost.

Many library-based television (TV) channels do not feature live content, but still use the same distribution methods as live channels, which can prove costly. GRIDSHOT® can install your playout servers at every delivery point in the world (also in the cloud), effectively, flexibly and at lower cost than traditional methods.

GRIDSHOT® delivers a reliable, fully hot-standby redundant playout service for library-based linear television (TV) channels in terms of continuity and cost efficiency, which is now more important than ever before.

In 2018 GRIDSHOT® introduced a hybrid live playout solution with predefined live events. Our solution makes it possible to convert a library-based linear television (TV) channel to one that has a mix of both library and live content. This hybrid setup is designed with the principles in mind that GRIDSHOT® stands for, reliable and more cost effective than a full live playout solution. The playout solution can be placed in a different location than where live events come from.

The latest addition to our playout system is a fully integrated Video On Demand (VOD) platform for the channels we operate, making use of the same Media Asset Management system (MAM) as our playout solution. The look and feel of the Video On Demand (VOD) platform can be customized to the needs of the brand or organization.
