U-Share is a network management system for content contribution or occasional broadcasts, automating the exchange of video and audio data from a source site to one or several destination sites.
Designed for broad-casters and/or Telecom operators, U-Share is a software package designed in a modular fashion.
U-Share uses the latest transmission technologies: the computer transport network IP (in asynchronous mode: FTP) and/or video (DVB Digital Video Broadcast in synchronous mode). The user-friendly interface of the U-Share system workstations ensures fast and efficient handling by users.
The U-Share video acquisition module automatically digitizes all types of feeds. U-Share remote- controls the various channel equipments (coder, decoder, VTR, server, grid, time code generator, and so on).
U-Share's exchange scheduling module allows the scheduling (Booker) of each exchange from a site to one or more receiving sites (source site, destination sites, start date/time, duration, and so on).
During an exchange (or transmission), all equipment for the sites involved in the exchange (transmitting site, receiving sites) is auto-matically piloted at the beginning of the exchange, during the exchange and at the end of the exchange.
U-Share optimizes the exchange of video and audio content through autonomous and automatic management of its transport network. For each transfer request in a given time slot U-Share offers the best solution considering network congestion, thus considerably reduces transfer costs.
Thanks to the use of the IT standard and its architecture based on a database engine, U-Share is modular and upgradeable.
