BERKELEY, Calif. -- Eluvio today announced the launch of the Eluvio Content Fabric, a novel software platform for content owners to manage and distribute premium video (live and on-demand) to consumers and business partners without content delivery networks (CDNs). It enables content owners to deliver ultra-low latency, high quality video content – and reduce their reliance on complex and costly transcoding services, cloud storage providers, and aggregators. Monetization, versioning, dynamic personalization and rights control are intrinsic, making possible whole new classes of entertainment experiences.
The Eluvio Content Fabric's patent-pending architecture was created by a team led by Michelle Munson and Serban Simu, the founders of Aspera and inventors of the FASP fast file transport protocol. Recognizing the inefficiencies and costs associated with video delivery, they founded Eluvio to address some of the hardest challenges facing today's premium content owners.
The Eluvio Content Fabric is a global software overlay network that enables just-in-time video distribution directly from the source (stream or file). It eliminates the need to create additional copies of files used in distribution networks or storage facilities using a novel representation of media and data protocol implemented in a blockchain network to create a transformational direct-to-consumer media distribution platform. Eluvio has pioneered innovation in content-centric design, blockchain data protocols, machine learning, in-network processing and transport, and programmable media to create the Eluvio Content Fabric.
Eluvio is collaborating with multiple content providers to refine features in the platform. For example, MGM Studios, a premier public customer, is using the Eluvio Content Fabric for global streaming to web, mobile and TVE audiences of certain properties, including transcoding, multi-format encryption and DRM, access control, and audience reporting. The deployment is part of MGM's innovation of a next-gen supply chain.
