AppCloud is a cloud-based app platform that supports a content partner’s existing Android Package (APK), and was designed to overcome four critical issues facing OTT Providers:
AppCloud runs Android APKs in the Cloud, and delivers the user experience via a thin AppCloud Client, which is ported onto the set-top. This significantly reduces development effort, cost and time-to-market. All DRM, data and content flows are untouched and intact, between the device and CDN, so it’s completely secure.
And, as app onboarding takes days rather than months, OTT Providers can deliver the most recent version of their app to a broad range of devices with minimal additional effort.
For OTT Providers, ActiveVideo AppCloud eliminates the need to develop custom OTT apps for devices running unique operating systems, or those that are underpowered, in effect extending delivery of their UX and content to the widest-possible range of STB and consumer devices designed for the lean-back viewing experience. It simplifies the certification, testing and app management required to support a diverse marketplace of devices, and provides the best possible experience for consumers.
The AppCloud app-onboarding process is designed to streamline and accelerate your time-to-market and ensure that consumers are experiencing the latest version of your apps as soon as possible as they are released.
OTT apps may be frequently updated by OTT providers or developers on a regular basis. ActiveVideo AppCloud is designed to accommodate these updates promptly so the consumers receive the latest app experience shortly after update. The update process is an accelerated version of the onboarding process, less the preliminary evaluation phase.
ActiveVideo works with cable operators and set-top manufacturers globally… Just drop your already-built, highly performant APK once into AppCloud and deliver your solution EVERYWHERE, immediately. No local-port, no pain, no delay.
