Choose a fully cloud-hosted or hybrid deployment to meet all your live and VOD preparation needs
Locate ingest servers on your premises or in the Cloud, depending on your business needs. Upload VOD files or encode live streams with full support for time-shift and nPVR. Videostage can work with existing encoding resources to maximize your existing investments.

Transcode to HLS, DASH or Smooth Streaming for live and VOD on every device. Package with multi-DRM (Widevine, PlayReady, FairPlay) or leading CA solutions depending on your deployment model. Configure content rules: geo-blocking, concurrent stream limits, user entitlements, parental controls.
Choose cloud-hosted or on-premises origin servers to host your streams, files, nPVR and time-shifted TV. Cloud-hosted resources feature auto-scaling. Optional capacity monitoring ensures hardware optimization in on-premises deployments.
Videostage is CDN-agnostic. Select our private CDN solution or one of our pre-integrated partners to best suit your budget and enjoy fastest deployment. Or bring your own CDN solution for easy integration.
Optional service management and monitoring for all kinds of deployments. Collects hundreds of metrics including CPU usage, capacity, storage utilization, API response times, server and database loads, DRM key rotations, ingest monitoring and transcode queues.
Generate user-friendly reports from on-premises deployments to reveal content consumption data and trends, including usage by OS, device type, browser version etc. Access reports from our cloud systems via the Backstage Dashboard or APIs.
Backstage & Appstage
As you'd expect, Videostage is seamlessly integrated with both Backstage and Appstage ensure a frictionless flow of content from ingest to cross-platform front-end applications.
Ads & Recommendations
On-premises deployments can connect third-party recommendation engines and advertising solutions via the Videostage APIs to support AVOD and drive user engagement. Ask our team about support for custom advertising requirements through Backstage.
For Pay TV services with their own OSS/BSS solution, the Videostage APIs are used to synchronize user entitlements and subscriptions across all connected applications. For Cloud deployments, Backstage provides pre-integration with 3rd party subscriber management partners.
