Live To VOD

Simple, accelerated and automated distribution of content to all screens. Create video-on-demand files from live streams and syndicate to multiple online destinations such as Netflix, Hulu and MVPDs in near real time.

How It Works

As viewers flock to screens of all sizes through which they consume content, programmers and service providers have struggled with the time it takes them to convert and reallocate their live events for on-demand (VOD) consumption. In recent years, some solutions have taken hours to properly process this content – negatively impacting availability, viewing audience numbers and most importantly, monetization.

Live To VOD Bridge

With Anvato MCP’s new Live to VOD Bridge, these concerns are mitigated. Within seconds of the completion of a live broadcast, MCP makes the entire program available for on-demand viewing within seconds. Further, the natural ad pods in the program are already pre-marked for ad replacement and can be monetized without any additional effort as the show is consumed on-demand. That means instant monetization.

Fastest to Market/Viewer

Live to VOD Bridge represents the market’s fastest video workflow for bringing live events to on-demand viewers. Further, this feature also solves a need for other programmers too – who seek to have a VOD asset immediately ready the minute their show airs on a traditional broadcast channel. No more wasteful workflows and delay in re-processing the files after airing for on-demand watching. Across every application and screen, Live to VOD Bridge reduces publish time to the viewer to near zero, enhances monetization efforts and simplifies your workflow from signal to screen.
