Appointment TV was the norm in the Golden Age of Television, a period that lasted from 1949 to about 1960. Viewing habits didn’t change much until 1977, when the VCR was introduced in the US, offering viewers a hint of what on-demand and user-controlled programming could look like. Then, in 1999, ReplayTV and TiVo changed viewing habits forever when they launched the first digital video recorder (DVR). Now we live in an anytime, anywhere paradigm with web-connected and mobile viewing.
This white paper, the third in a series by Dell EMC, focuses on four aspects related to OTT content delivery: programming distribution methods, the basics of OTT, delivery components and the storage requirements for delivering OTT video to a variety of viewing devices.
