Abstract

Wireless system architectures worldwide are undergoing a paradigm shift today. This, by adopting new technology and wireless system architectures based on Software Defined Network (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) that are being instantiated using IT cloud computing methods. The 3GPP is defining a new 5G radio and 5G core network in release 16 based on a cloud native system architecture. Herein, a new next generation multi-channel-tenant virtualized broadcast platform using SDN/NFV is disclosed using ATSC 3.0 standards A/321, A/322 as a baseline.

Abstract

Apparatuses and methods are provided for generating, transmitting, receiving, and decoding one or more band segmented bootstrap signals and one or more corresponding partitioned post bootstrap signals. For example, a transmitter is configured to generate a first set of symbols and a second set of symbols, where the first set of symbols includes information about the second set of symbols. The transmitter is further configured to generate a third set of symbols and a fourth set of symbols, where the third set of symbols includes information about the fourth set of symbols. The transmitter is also configured to generate a data frame including the first, second, third, and fourth set of symbols. A bandwidth of the data frame includes a first segment and a second segment.

Abstract

Systems, devices, and methods are described herein for distributing syndicated content or content with one or more distribution restrictions. In one aspect, a method may include assigning a unique ID to a plurality of content items, where the unique ID of at least one of the content items is associated with one or more property distribution restrictions. The method may further include streaming in a video stream the content items to at least two properties and monitoring the unique IDs of the plurality of content items streamed in the video stream to detect least one content item associated with the one or more property distribution restrictions. The distribution of the least one content item associated with the one or more property distribution restrictions may be blocked from the one or more properties concurrently with streaming the video stream, based on the one or more property distribution restrictions.

Abstract

Techniques are described herein for optimizing the presentation of content through obtaining viewership metrics, generating multiple renditions of presentations of content, and selecting optimized renditions of content. One aspect includes associating a request for viewership metrics with a presentation of content, publishing the presentation of content, and receiving information of the viewership metrics associated with the presentation. Another aspect includes copying a presentation of a content item, creating a second presentation of the content item for publishing over one or more channels, and linking the presentation of the content item to the second presentation of the content item, such that a change to one propagates to the other of the presentation of the content item or the second presentation of the content item. In yet another aspect, a content rendition may be selected for presentation based on performance of the rendition out of multiple renditions in an auction.

Abstract

Systems, devices and methods are described herein for segmentation of content, and more specifically for segmentation of content in a content management system. In one aspect, a method may include receiving content associated with speech, text, or closed captioning data. The speech, the text, or the closed captioning data may be analyzed to derive at least one of a topic, subject, or event for at least a portion of the content. The content may be divided into two or more content segments based on the analyzing. At least one of the topic, the subject, or the event may be associated with at least one of the two or more content segments based on the analyzing. At least one of the two or more content segments may then be published such that each of the two or more content segments is individually accessible.

Abstract

Techniques are described herein for placing secondary content into a break of unknown duration in a primary content stream. In one aspect, the described techniques may include receiving information indicative of a break in streaming of the primary content. A duration of the stream of the primary content may be obtained, and secondary content may be played. Upon detecting that the duration of the stream of the primary content has increased to a second duration, the primary content may be streamed. In another aspect, the described techniques may include streaming a segment of primary content, for example, by a device. The device may receive information indicative of a break in the streaming of the primary content and may play secondary content based on receiving the information. The device may begin streaming the next segment of the primary content upon detecting that the second segment of the primary content is available.
