We are lookin for a Web Developer with LAMP and Streaming Multimedia experience in Opensource Technologies for this excisting project.
The project is to launch an IPTV/PayTV/PayPerView/VOD/DVB service website using:
1) A Set Top Box
2) Media Encoder
3) Media Streamer
4) Asset Management and Provisioning/Scheduling System
5) Customer Self-Service portal
5) IPHONE Application for mobile clients
This will be a true IPTV Network and not another YouTube, or a flash site streaming but an actual video and audio distribution system, either real-time or pre-recorded.
We were approached by some Indian TV stations and asked to broadcast their stable of channels including TV9.
TV9 was already being broadcast over the internet but a new, more user friendly, administration tool was needed together with substantial savings in regard to the existing playout costs.
The transfer of the pre-encode content will be seamless – a simple FTP transfer to one or our servers. The asset management and scheduling tool will then be used to undertake the 3 x roles of:
• Content Administration – the scheduler automatically generated thumbnails and calculated the duration of each individual item of content, whilst inviting the administrator to name the content.
• Programmes Creation – where programmes constitute separate sections of content interspersed with video adverts and idents
• Daily Schedules – creation of custom schedules and a daily schedules for up to a year ahead
The channel will sit on the internet playing out 24/7 to viewers around the world in the knowledge that each viewer is helping the channel derive ROI from advertising revenue in the form of video adverts and web-page real-estate advertising.
We want to broadcasts pictures and sound in the Internet. We make our content available worldwide – radio and TV programmes, culture and sporting events, conferences and company events. Live or on demand.
• We transcode audio and video for streaming and downloading in any format.
• We provide 100% availability via SLA, geoblocking, DRM, and virtually unlimited scalability through various platforms.
• We shall constantly innovate our software from our modular systems.

We want to explore the new possibilities that make sense for everyone and develop corresponding solutions - for recording, encoding, hosting, delivery, download, live and on-demand streaming, or for realising current trends – we fine tune our services to meet the wants and needs in all these areas and more:
