The GRIDSHOT® playout output can be adapted to local requirements of the colocation facility from where the playout takes place. 

The powerful GRIDSHOT® playout solution enables real-time encoding to generate a stable and flexible playout signal without the need of costly encoding units. This built-in encoding feature enables us to customize the video encoding parameters to any local requirements that a colocation may have (worldwide), without re-transcoding the original files in our Media Asset Management (MAM) system.

GRIDSHOT® playout downloads the original files from our Media Asset Management (MAM) system. When the files are needed for playing out, the playout software decodes the content and encode the content to correct format, all process are real time. When the colocation requires a different bit rate, we can change this within 5 minutes and your playout server is directly playout in a new bit rate.

Our solution facilitates the real-time ingest of live streams, irrespective of bit rates and codecs. The playout software will encode the stream to the configured playout output.

The above-mentioned encoding and decoding expertise gained from the development of the linear GRIDSHOT® playout is one-to-one built into our VOD solution. This enables us to produce multiple profiles of each file in different bit rates and resolutions. In this way end users can be offered different profiles, based on the applicable Video on Demand (VOD) type, TVOD, SVOD or AVOD.
