CONSUO - Bringing VOD to Live

Consuo is a software, running in Docker containers on your private or public cloud, that offers the functionality to generate virtual linear TV streams from available VOD library. No additional live transcoding is necessary which means you can create a large number of channels to a fraction of the cost of a real linear TV stream.

Using a technique commonly referred to as VOD to Live this is possible without requiring any live transcoding. A benefit that makes it possible to scale this to a large number of channels to a fraction of the cost compared to live 24/7 transcoding.
