Frankly’s Express Video is a groundbreaking platform that integrates Live, VOD, Live-to-VOD and ad insertion workflows seamlessly into your CMS. Our cloud services acquire, manage, distribute and monetize video from any standards-based encoder. Quickly and easily publish your content with multi-bitrate HD streaming to web, social, mobile and OTT.
Acquire video from any source
Connect on-premise or field encoders from industry leaders such as Amazon Elemental, Teradek and LiveU to continuously record 72 hours of video content in the cloud. While traditional OVPs have been limited to file-based workflows or the primary live feed of their customers, Express Video can capture multiple broadcast feeds, as well as live streams from the field in a single CMS instance.
Edit video in real time
Browse 72 hours of recorded video from any source to frame-accurately edit clips for digital publication moments after they air on TV or online. Edited clips are automatically encoded in multiple bitrates for adaptive, HD-quality streaming to web, mobile and OTT devices.
Live Stream with ad insertion
Frankly’s groundbreaking live stream solution connects broadcast and online systems into one seamless workflow, while preserving embedded SCTE-35 metadata to enable targeted ad insertion and personalized content experiences. Deliver multiple video channels to your audience in full HD-quality with adaptive bitrate (ABR) streaming using HLS or MPEG-DASH.
AUTOMATE COMPLEX WORKFLOWS
Frankly’s Express Video workflows are included in the full-featured Frankly CMS or available standalone for use with alternative platforms such as WordPress. In either case, we offer a powerful suite of automation tools that make video publishing easy.
Create once and publish everywhere, including your web, social, mobile and OTT experiences. Video assets are automatically generated in multiple bitrates for adaptive HD streaming using HLS or MPEG-DASH. Discrete MP4 files are also created for each bitrate to support syndication and posting to social media outlets.
Monetize your video
Schedule your own pre-roll, mid-roll and post-roll campaigns for VOD assets and live streams using our instance of Google Ad Manager. Or let Frankly manage and optimize your inventory to maximize revenue with industry leading CPMs.
