The ABR system runs on industry standard off-the-shelf server hardware and can be customized to meet the operators´ specific streaming requirements. With its innovative architecture, the ABR Server allows for seamless growth and scalable redundancy – both through vertical brick-by-brick scaling and horizontal functional separation.
