The Video IP Engineering and Research (VIPER) team at Comcast is responsible for HTTP video delivery that exceeds 500M transactions per day. Our DASH VOD Origin is a Java Tomcat application built with Maven. Our Super8 just-in-time packager is an Apache HTTP module written in C that uses Apache Portable Runtime. We implement our forward and reverse caching proxies using Apache Traffic Server, and our browser PlayerPlatformAPI is an Apache Flex application. We ingest and maintain 70,000 hours of VOD content, compress it using H.264/AVC, and store it on a 2PB network attached storage system. Sourcing our content in DASH (Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP) lets our Super8 packager easily convert video into proprietary formats such as Apple HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) and Adobe HTTP Dynamic Streaming (HDS) for video playback on mobile, browser, and IP set-top devices all across the country.
