With millions of players sold since 2010, Roku is the most popular and affordable Internet TV player, which turns any regular TV into an advanced Smart TV compatible with all Internet channels such as Netflix, Amazon Instant Video or Hulu. By integrating with Roku's SDK, FrontLayer's FLC Video Platform allows you to create, publish and broadcast your own custom branded Roku channel. By default, your channel is also made available for mobile devices (iPad/iPhone, Android) and on your own website, enabling a truly multi-screen broadcasting strategy.
Whether you are a large broadcaster or a small company looking to distribute your media content, our intuitive web-based portal allows you to manage every aspect of your channel, including pre-recorded videos and live streaming. The platform runs on FrontLayer's back-end infrastructure which is directly connected to Level3 CDN (Content Delivery Network), guaranteeing that your audience can grow to any number of end-viewers, even during short 'peak' periods of time, always maintaining the same playback quality.
Our Software as a Service (SaaS) approach is designed to allow you to focus exclusively on your content, which is where your added-value resides. Every other variable of the broadcasting process, including custom channel development, content encoding, media management, distribution, and technical support is included in all our plans. There are no contracts or long-term commitments, and you may also request a free trial to test-drive the service before signup.
FrontLayer's Nexus service is oriented to companies or individuals interested in broadcasting live and pre-recorded media content through their own custom branded channel, compatible with TVs (Roku, GoogleTV, AppleTV, Boxee), mobile devices (iPad, iPhone, Android) and regular browsers (Flash/HTML5).
All you need is to upload your videos to the Nexus platform, which can be done through our web-based interface or using our API. Once a video is uploaded, it becomes available at your Roku channel, so every Roku user can watch it directly on TV.
To use the live streaming function of your channel, you can use any available video source (from a basic webcam to advanced capture cards for external signals), and connect to your assigned Live Publishing Point at Nexus platform. The connection can be established based on any RTMP encoder, such as Adobe Flash Media Encoder or Wirecast. Once the connection is established, the live stream becomes available at your Roku channel, so every Roku user can watch it directly on TV.
The service is available worldwide to anyone that has a broadband Internet connection. Your end-users (audience) can also be located in any part of the world, as long as they have a broadband Internet connection. Please note that in order to access the TV/OTT version of your channel, end-users will require a compatible media player, such as a Roku device.
