OTT Software Overview

What is OTT Software?


OTT stands for "over-the-top," and describes streaming media services that have been made available over the Internet, bypassing traditional delivery methods like cable or satellite. Most commonly used to describe streaming video and television programs, OTT may also describe other communication or media services delivered over the Internet (e.g. VoIP, OTT messaging). OTT software comprises a host of tools, applications, and services that enable content creators and publishers to distribute OTT media, and monetize it. While Netflix presently represents the largest provider of OTT services, the number of options are proliferating.

Various OTT software aid in different facets of OTT. Broadly, OTT software and media streaming platforms provide some or all of the following features:
  • Streaming video delivery quality and optimization
  • Media ingestion of live events (e.g. concerts, streams, etc.) for later delivery
  • Cotent organization (e.g. into channels)
  • Content scheduling (e.g. premieres)
  • Monetization (subscriber management, advertisements)
  • API access for ancillary tools
  • SDK or development toolkit for designing player, optimizing for playback on various devices (e.g. mobile devices)
  • Multi-service integration (e.g. integrating chat or messaging into video, etc.)
  • Content hosting, video storage

Complete OTT solutions comprise content delivery and streaming service optimization, video hosting, advertising or subscription based monetization management, and developer tools for ensuring smooth delivery to various platforms, or proprietary hardware.
