The DCM is the modular software architecture running on common compute node as DCM or on optimised hardware as DCM appliance (D9902). The DCM is a platform that virtualises the entire video headend, offering the well-known feature richness, picture quality, stability, and reliability of the widely deployed DCM D9902 hardware platform.
The DCM comes with an easy-to-use interface, simplifying the configuration of video processing functions across your video sources, and is supported by the Synamedia Video Network Service Manager (VSM), which enables you to easily provision DCM instances and even have service portability between the DCM appliance model and the virtualised DCM (software-based) model.
The DCM is a fully optimised solution on Synamedia dedicated hardware as well as on the Synamedia Compute Node platform, and it runs on general-purpose computing hardware on premises or in the cloud.
Features and Benefits
Synamedia DCM offers exceptional video services for linear pay TV broadcast and live streaming. It provides:
Video processing functions such as live transcoding to multiple bit rates and formats can be flexibly implemented dedicated hardware, fully optimised to run on Synamedia Compute Nodes, as well as a virtualised application.
Scalable Video Functions
Video functions in the DCM can be independently instantiated and elastically scaled, enabling cost- and resource-efficient growth and contributing to reduced-overall TCO.
Superior Picture Quality
The DCM offers best-in-class video quality, optimised for your bandwidth requirements.
An intuitive user interface simplifies the configuration and operation of the DCM. Common management across Virtual and Appliance DCM platforms further simplifies ongoing video headend operations.
Broad Feature Set
The DCM offers several broad features and functions of the DCM platform, including support for:
