Title (EN) RECORDING MULTICAST ADAPTIVE BITRATE (MABR) STREAMING CONTENT BASED ON SCHEDULE
(FR) ENREGISTREMENT D'UN CONTENU DE FLUX CONTINU À DÉBIT BINAIRE ADAPTATIF DE MULTIDIFFUSION (MABR) BASÉ SUR L'HORAIRE
Abstract:
(EN) A system and method for facilitating recording of content in a multicast adaptive bitrate (MABR) streaming network using a DVR recording scheduler node. A program recording request may be generated at a subscriber device based on a program schedule to record a particular program, wherein the program recording request includes a priority level indicative of a video quality preference for recording the particular program. Optionally, the program recording request may also include an indication of a target recording device of the subscriber premises. The recording quality of the particular program may be dynamically adjusted based on bandwidth contention conditions on the subscriber premises bandwidth pipe and may involve disregarding the priority level indicated in the program recording request as long as there is no bandwidth contention.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système et un procédé destinés à faciliter l'enregistrement de contenu dans un réseau de flux continu à débit binaire adaptatif de multidiffusion (MABR) en utilisant un nœud ordonnanceur d'enregistrement de magnétoscope numérique. Une demande d'enregistrement de programme peut être générée au niveau d'un dispositif d'abonné sur la base d'un horaire de programme afin d'enregistrer un programme particulier. La demande d'enregistrement de programme comprend un niveau de priorité indiquant une préférence de qualité vidéo pour enregistrer le programme particulier. En option, la demande d'enregistrement de programme peut également contenir une indication d'un dispositif d'enregistrement cible des locaux de l'abonné. La qualité d'enregistrement du programme particulier peut être réglée de manière dynamique en se basant sur les conditions de collision de largeur de bande sur le tuyau de largeur de bande des locaux de l'abonné et peut impliquer le fait d'ignorer le niveau de priorité indiqué dans la demande d'enregistrement de programme tant qu'il n'existe pas de conflit de largeur de bande.
