Software Platform and Reference Implementation

The reference implementation and production device is implemented under our “MediaPlug” or “Mevia” Appliance. In general, any server with 8-16GB of RAM, i7 Intel Processor or AMD, 2TB drive (RAID), ethernet or fiber interfaces is more than sufficient to load all docker  images and be provisioned for media delivery.

Additional Software Requirements

Xen Server 7.2 or higher, or Ubuntu Linux 14.04 or higher with Docker Images.
Sources implemented with PHP, Python, C/C++, BASH, and other modules.

Mux and Cable Headend Requirements

The Cable Headend should consist of a Motorola-based Cherry or any other DVB/MPEG mux. All Set Top Boxes can support multicast streams directly for IPTV systems with fiber, or Coaxial with DOCSIS 2.0-3.0.  MPEG messages and encoding depends on provider.

Formatted for Audio-only, HTML-based Standard Definition (SD), High Definition (HD), 4K, and/or Dolby-digital Sound.
