HMS extends Managed Service portfolio

At the Playout Center Berlin the HMS Managed Service portfolio now also covers the insertion of metadata, such as HbbTV URLs or EPG information, into incoming transport streams without re-encoding the original signal. Clients are able to upload metadata via file or web service. Our service then automatically starts re-multiplexing the transport stream and adding additional PSI and DVB-SI data.

The new Managed Service offer also contains monitoring the transport stream via ETSI TR 290 101 and sending error alerts via SNMP or email.

One of the first clients having our technology in active operation is Germany based Media Broadcast GmbH.
