We are a fairly knowledgeable Wowza using company, but we’d like to bring in some professionals (must be US based) for this latest job:
Here’s the job:
Utilize the Wowza nDVR API to record on demand, directed by our web/db server (we pretty much already know how to do this part) in multiple bitrates of the same stream (we are already transcoding to the multiple bitrates).
Store automatically each recording in dedicated external storage (NOT S3, we are planning on storing it at our data center). This means file transfer will have to take place.
Allow the call of an adaptive .smil of the stream, utilizing the multiple bitrates we have recorded and moved to the external storage.
external storage will also be used to house our VoD library.
We’ll be interested in hearing best practices on the use of nDVR as well, to see if what we are proposing violates those best practices.
