Scilla's Push-VOD System for DVB Networks enable delivery of HD content to Set-top Box hard disks during off-peak hours. Premium content can be offered as subscription services or as pay-per-view.

Typical Push-VOD usage

  • Offer free movie trailers and teasers
  • Download full length movies
  • Offer pre-stored bonus content for live TV
  • Ad insertion from local disk storage

The Push-VOD workflow

  • Optional pre-encryption of content
  • Scheduling playout and announcing upcoming downloads
  • Playout of Push-VOD data carousels
  • Playback of stored content to the subscriber

Scilla's Solution

The end-to-end system builds upon Scilla's versatile Attitude content delivery platform and Exactitude Push-VOD carousel servers. The system pre-loads premium content to subscribers' Set-top boxes in the background e.g. during night time or at pre-defined time slots when unused network capacity is available.



The system uses a special Filecast Notification Table (FNT) to inform client applications about upcoming Push-VOD and filecasting sessions. This enables set-top boxes to wake-up from stand-by mode and only receive content that is selected for download by the subscriber.
