The Nokia Velocix Recording Manager is a versatile and feature-rich software module. It is designed to implement the service logic of any cloud-based digital video recorder (DVR) solution. It exposes generic REST interfaces. This allows it to easily integrate with any recording engine and back-office video platform to develop time-shifted video services, including catch-up TV, restart TV and DVR services.
The Velocix Recording Manager manages requests from end users to create, update, or delete recordings. It interfaces with back-end video platforms to receive program grids and end-user information, and to ensure end users have permission to access content. It connects to network-based recording engines to initiate and control the recording process.
By moving the service logic into the cloud, the Velocix Recording Manager allows pay TV operators to offer subscribers the ability to manage their recordings on the network from any device. This move is the first step in the transition from home- to cloud-based recording, which can produce significant costs reductions for service providers.
