Abstract

Platon TV is a country-wide platform that supports HD content production, processing and delivery for research and educational purposes. The scope of operation and a wide area of scientific subjects covered, in combination with the technological requirements of high resolution, high quality content makes design of such a platform a challenging task. In this paper we present how the intended functionality is implemented by Platon TV for various stages of content lifecycle. We describe the platform architecture and mechanisms that ensure required security and reliability.
