Aiding DOOH video distribution using the Web
Video distribution by DOOH vendors is typically done by:
- "Sneakernet", a weekly round of USB key updates sent out to screens
- IPTV which can fail if there is a loss of network
There is a need for efficient fault tolerant online distribution.
Using Web-based digital signage can help mitigate failure and aid distribution
The Web has benefits of caching facilities, video playback, all based on open standards and therefore avoid proprietary lock in.
Once a manifest of videos (a schedule) is cached, a network failure should go unnoticed.
